That doesn't answer the question. Blackberry has an OS. Windows is an OS. Apple gives you a substandard (ability-wise) capable phone that can do stuff prettily. That get things that other phones may have a little bit every year. Some of you have paid for the same phone 3 times. Take the shine and glimmer off of the phone and what do you have?

Pretty much just a gimmick. It gets internet, but can't send a picture message? Maybe you should cover the basics before going above and beyond.

Ability!!!!!!! I said in ability as in what it can and can not do.

You dont even have MMS yet and only new users get video.

That sounds substandard to me

I can email a picture like a normal human being, or Facebook it, or Tweet it.

I can't shoot video (boo hoo). That leaves me only with an awesome, excellent mobile browser, a selection of wonderful, well design applications, excellent management of media capabilities, and superior synchronization on a phone with excellent reliability and UI performance.

and With over 50,000 apps on the iTunes store along with every other Phone manufacture trying to copy or beat the iPhone sounds to me like people who have window's mobile phones aren't happy with theres and just want to hate on the iPhone? Rolling Eyes
And the Mobile Me is awesome Very Happy

You can email but can you send a pic to another phone? I admit the browser is the best but I want a phone that does more instead of a few things that looks great.

Enjoy your toy. Ill wait for the Iphone 3Gs business edition before I ever consider joining the herd.

How is this an Operating System. As someone stated earlier, its a gimmick and they add stuff every year to keep you going.


An operating system multitasks and does other things....the IPHONE runs 1 application at a time, and if it didnt have the Apple brand you know good and well people would complain....and it wouldnt sell as well.

1. It is not a requirement of an OS to Multitask.

2. The iPhone OS does multitask. It doesn't allow for 3rd party applications to run simultaneously, but the web browser, mail client, music player, phone application, SMS application, user interface (installation while performing other actions), among other things all are capable of running simultaneously.

3. The iPhone supports more sophisticated APIs than almost every other mobile device on the planet at the moment. Download the iPhone SDK and compare Cocoa to say, what you get on a Blackberry... or even WebOS (which amounts to a fancy web browser but is still considered an OS.) Yes it allows for more entertaining games, but also allows for sophisticated document management software...

1. I didnt say it was

2. Then that isnt true multitasking

3. So everyphone is an OS in their own right and should have to pay for the smartphone data plan right?

of all the internet used by mobile devices last year the iPhone made up 66% of the market... why shouldn't it cost $30 instead of 15?

The monthly cost of an iphone, is the same as a blackberry, or and AT&T Fuze (TP), or even the N71x. Take the pick of the one you want, no wrong choice.
