THANK YOU! This phone is CRAP! Thank god someone said it...

Crazyglues3672d ago (Edited 3672d ago )

it's not that bad a phone, as much as the service...

I was hoping apple would change the industry and do something revolutionary like a $5 dollars a month plan.. now that would be a phone to die for.

DrPirate3672d ago

I agree, this phone is crap.

It lacks several fundamental features. It's good for business men though, I don't see it going widespread ala Ipod.

Yo Mama3672d ago

This coming from someone who thinks the 360 "rocks"? Haha. I bet you haven't even held an iPhone, much less own one.

PS360PCROCKS3672d ago

I won't even stoop to the level of someone who's name is "yo mama" so gimme a break. I don't need to defend my name or the 360 as it is a cool machine, just like my PS3 is, and I'm not some nerd who cares. Lastly, I don't need to hold an iphone to know it's crap...it will sell simply by name alone...apple. Why don't you take a second to look at the specs and than the specs of other phones and you will see this phone is indeed lacking in several ways.

I can't say iphone is the best, yet it's offering us something new, new tech with multi touch technology, well my friend ... technology is expensive... that's why ps3, iphone, mac is put on expensive category.

If you can't afford it... just deal with it... no need to bash it. I had most pda phones... from PALM to WINDOWS MOBILE (since 2003-06) get this... it's all sux! I was excited when windows release the first mobile OS for pda... but again... it still have the old tradition of windows... which is... "hang" BOD or I can say Red Light for 360.
Now tell me... if you pay a good money for the product? even it is cheapper.. but it doesn't match the cost i believe.

just work, earn more money.. and enjoy your life.
buy what you can buy... no need complain and nagging mister~

For pda phone I can say PALM is the most reliable one, but lack of compatibility ... symbian is also good... but somehow it's pretty slow for some phone... windows... looks good.. but it's always not reliable.

now I'm looking forward to get iphone... waiting for 3G version to release in asia.

but with 8 hours talk time... I never had that kind of battery for phone to be able to talk that long.

...How can they make a phone where the battery doesn't come out? Do they expect you to put your life or BUSINESS on hold a few days while they change out the battery! That's nuts!

and I saw the price for iPhone, which makes PS3 look like one hell of a bargain.

Satanas3672d ago

"There is no iPhone discount. You'll be paying $500 or $600 for the phone plus a total anywhere from $1440 to $2400 in monthly charges for service over the next two years."

I had no interest in the iPhone before, but now I see why people bash it so much.

Torch3672d ago (Edited 3672d ago )

how people break out the torches and pitchforks when mentioning the PS3's price (which is arguably an absolute bargain, all things considered), yet don't even flinch to scramble for their wallet to buy the newest item that's got an Apple logo on it.

Seemingly the sky's the limit when it comes to purchasing a ticket to ride Mr. Jobs' Hype Train.

Go figure.

@ktchong

Ditto!!!

Like Scientology, it costs $$$ to stay in the cult.

OT1 = Mac = $1500+
OT2 = iBook/MacBook = another $1500+
OT3 = iPod = $200+
OT4 = iPhone = $500+
...

Apple fanboys set the bar for extreme fanboyism.

Rhezin3672d ago

not werth 600 bones, I'd buy a George Foreman grill (ps3) for that price.

The Technology aspect of this website is meant to be related to gaming ONLY. Why is this crap always approved?
