Actually you are correct... But check the Nokia N96 and you might consider to upgrade...

The appeal of the iphone is quite strong because i was looking for a new contract as my old one has ended and the iphone is free on the tarrif i want it looks great.

Oh! the n96s big brother! im glad they decided to make the design less serious than the n95. still looks good! someone has finally realized that apple is a low class company with high class designs and prices!

Coming from a E61i, I appreciated the power of the Symbian OS, but the device lack processing power. Every function seemed to stall and waiting isn't fun. Now with the latest OS on the iPhone V.2, feels like im back on my E61i. I haven't been able to use a more recent version of the OS (Symbian), I would like to know if they put any processing power behind the decent OS?

I am not pro-apple, but I LOVE my iPhone. I had previous smart phones and PDAs but I seem to use m iPhone MUCH more than I used the others.

I have a whole pile of co-workers who have swear by the iphone now. It's just such a pricey bit of gear, that although I succumb to gadget lust quite often, it's just too expensive. The data packages in Canada through Rogers are pretty steep, not even taking into account the actual iPhone costs.

I've never seen one in real life let alone handled one. The 2 main turnoffs for me are the lack of a proper keyboard and the ridiculous monthly charge. I couldn't imagine being locked into a contract for 2 years! What do you do when another fantastic must-have phone comes out within a few months? I feel ill just thinking about it.:lol::lol:

I would hope that someday there would be a great UMPC that is like a Psion 5mx with all of the blackberry e-mail wireless features that way it would replace a laptop and the need for a PDA type phone, then all you would need is an ultra slim phone that is nothing other than a phone or if the UMPC had the ability to do the phone functions via a blue tooth headset then why even have a phone at all be it an Iphone or a Nokia, etc.?
What do you do when another fantastic must-have phone comes out within a few months?
Just pop the iPhone SIM into it. I used my first-gen iPhone SIM in my HTC Advantage and AT&T Tilt longer than it was actually used in the iPhone! My iPhone 3G SIM will find a home in the XPERIA X1 (not the unlocked one, though, as I want a subsidized price).
As long as you plan to stay with one carrier, then being locked into a two-year contract isn't a big deal. Before the first-gen iPhone, I was with T-Mobile for over 10 years.

so your shopping for full price phones with no operator lock then, jenn?
I'd much rather have an AT&T-subsidized one, but if unlocked is the only way to go (as it seems with the X1 so far), then I guess I have no choice.
What about you?

It's pretty much a gadget lust item, however it does have fairly high utility value. I for one would love one, but at the steep price, I'd rather get a UMPC.
The folks at work with it, at first hated lack of a keyboard, but now, they've said it is a non issue.

I have an iPod Touch and love it. There are two things that keep me from getting an iPhone 3G: no tethering, which is supposed to change soon, and no voice dialing.
Voice dialing is also coming, I believe.

I certainly hope so. Do you think maybe with 2.2?
11-16-2008, 02:14 PM
I'm in the market for a new phone and I'm not even considering the iphone. I know some of you are mentioning the nokia n96...try the nokia n85. It's a sweet phone. I'm planning on getting this soon.

I dont know if you are lucky people there. you are able to buy IPHONE 3G at a very reasonable if not a cheap price. But here in bahrain IPHONE 3G costs like a fortune.
The new Iphone 3G is now available in Bahrain, both the 16GB and 8GB – Unlocked phone are now available on a famous store in Bahrain. and its VERY VERY VEY expensive.
It's even more expensive than a laptop. I can even buy a second hand car for that price!!
16 GB iphone 3G = 632.500 Bahrain Dinar = $1677.5 US Dollars or 906 GBP
8GB Iphone 3G = 575 Bahrain Dinar = $1525 US Dollars or 823 GBP
This is too much for a less than $400 USD phone. And come to think of it- it’s not even legal to sell it yet in the Middle East region. This is just a jailbroken Iphone 3G handsets and with a warning not to run update into the unit. But believe me, many people still buy them….
I certainly hope so. Do you think maybe with 2.2?
No, it was supposed to come out via a Google third-party app. I haven't been following the progress too closely, as voice dialing isn't an important feature for me, but I thought it was due for release today.
Update: Oh, wait a minute. I think Google's thing is just voice-activated search. There are already a few voice dialing apps in the App Store. A few of them are even free, I think.

I've checked out the App Store and the reviews of the existing voice dialing apps make it clear that they are seriously flawed compared to those available on other phone. Until voice dialing can be activated from the headset or, at the VERY minimum, by clicking a single hardware button on the phone, it is unacceptable for use in a car.

no voice dialing!
