Surely the iPod games will get better now that Apple has revealed this beautiful touch-screen phone, with a 3.5" widescreen that rivals the PSP?
And I want buttons, screw touchscreen, to much maintenance to keep the screen clean.
it isn't a gaming device and it cost too much because they said it is running OS X. so it has so many possibilities for business professionals. my office is already planning on ordering 4 of them for us
I have one it is awesome.
they already have phone running windows which is way more capable than os x so yeah... it looks pretty but only for about 10 mins till it get scratched to hell, just like thier ipod videos and nano's why do you think they changed the nano to a aluminum finish now...i've owned both and i quickly sold them (video 60gb, nano 4gb) overpriced status symbols are all they are, there are far better things out thier for far cheaper.
and having a windows phone works if you are not having to deal with items involving Linux Servers. with the phone running mac OS X then it is still on the bds unix kernal, and so therefore, i might have a legit ssh client available for it. something that blackberry has not been able to offer. yes there are ssh clients for blackberrys and treos but the are not very secure and usually not extremely easy to use with all linux operations. I am talking about loving this phone for my job. not for personal use
Two versions: $500 and $600. For that price, it better print money. Literally. For me. And yes- you'll need to touch the screen to use it (and they have a system to use your fingers), but you also have to use the screen to, well, SEE it. Apple fans are exploding on this one... I just don't get it. It's too expensive, and it's just a friggen' PDA with a cell phone. I could get a touch-screen PDA today for $100, and a decent cell phone for $50 with a new contract. Whatever, I guess?
As one of those die hard Mac guys, its the ability to actually have the OS integrated right into the peripheral. When traveling, I have a hell of a time converging my MS Entourage (Outlook) with any external device. The price is not the objection it's the use of the OS. I will skip this generation until the flash memory increases into the 20Gb+ range, but this will be my next peripheral. Anyone want an absoulte piece of shat RAZR?
Are they on crack? Never would buy it. I'd rather buy the CHOCOLATE.
I'd rather buy a PS3. It's portable, with a handtruck. No nevermind im gonna need another IPTV reciever for the room better get another 360. That thing is pretty sexy though. If that's the look you want?
that looks really sweet, however I'm far too practical to pay 500 for an all in one phone.
I think this is the direction Apple should be taking. As phones become more and more powerful having a separate device (ipod) to listen to music will be just ugly. Obviosly the public is not ready to pay that much for a phone (specially one that have less capacity than the ipod they already own). Eventually when production cost goes down, this device may have a chance.
I think an ipod has its place as a seperate device. From the picture (unless those are small ass hands) the iphone looks a little too big in my opinion. I might be the minority but to me, it looks like a PSP with phone functionality. Sure the screen is damn pretty, but do you really want all those fingerprints and scratches from phone use, when you also use it to view movies?
Too expensive. Would all carriers be able to sell this phone or only certain ones? I could see the touch screen getting annoying after a while.
I completely agree with most of the comments about the iPhone or whatever they're going to be calling it. I think as with most of Apples products, it looks nice, but there are a lot of other devices that have better functionality at a lower price. And as a convergence device, with only 4 and 8GBs, I don't see people getting rid of their iPods or MP3 players, and watching videos may be neat, but battery life will be a problem. And not having the ability to install your own programs is a problem. Apple fanatics will but it, but I don't see it going main stream. Still I'd pick one up if it were $150 and I didn't have to use Cingular.
I admit it looks lovely but for $600, thats a rip-off and Apple knows that by using their brand name they might be getting alot of money off some die hard Mac fans, well i can wait until they release a better version for cheaper.
