iPhone OS 4.0 goes on video, does all that's promised

9 April, 2010
With the iPhone OS 4.0 devs beta released for download right after its announcement, hands-on videos of the new version of the Apple platform are spreading like wildfire. We have done most of the heavy lifting...

The iphone isn't the best device out there, and it's chiefly down to preference what you think is best.

Blackberry offers a great email experience, and does many smartphone tasks really well, but touchscreen is the must have gimmick nowadays. Combining keys = touch is a great idea, and Nokia have implemented it well into the N900, but then again, the jury is out wether they will continue to support Maemo as much once Symbian 3 is launched.

I've downloaded Opera, and it's nice to have this old favourite back from my N95/N86 days. It's a trade off though, between useability and speed, but this is ideal for being out and about without a wifi near you. I'll likely use safari for wifi spots though :)

Cutting nose off to spite ones face springs to mind.

Still can't see proper multitasking and is bluetooth file transfer available yet (use this alot to transfer files from my MBP to Blackberry and visa versa)

I have owned 2 iPhones and whilst I'll admit they are good, they are NOT the best smartphone available.

The almighty brand puts Symbian (S40) on its mid-low end phones and often "claim" it has the largest smartphone users base, when in reality most of such users (especially S40) only make / receive calls / SMS.

The screen response is not as organic as safari. Screen rendering is quite a mess, but on the good side, clarity is somehow a bit better, and loading speed is indeed significantly faster. But still, I might switch back to safari. Safari on the iphone is just more clean cut.

How can one phone, the iphone, compete in numbers to the many symbian phones out there? But if you compare the iphone to its direct rivals, the iphone wins. And yes, we are seeing changes, not just adding of old features, but rather a better implementation of those features, plus more that other phones do not have like spellcheck, game center, iads, etc. Now drool :)

Not quite as good as Safari, it'd be good for 2G or Edge if you don't have good 3G.

Now why would I waste my time in googling iphone bugs? I have no problems with my iphone at all. Nothing that would make me switch to other phones at least. Stop the hate.

many existing users of iphones I know are quite happy with their iphones to the point they are "not" getting anything else anytime soon

several of my friends who are currently users of the almighty brand are saying they will switch to iphone soon.

iPhone's being locked is the exactly same as if I bought a SIM locked Nokia or other brand phone, which are also sold here, you ask the network to unlock it and they do, any fees are exactly the same.

Lots of times I've met tourists from Europe with SIM locked Nokia and other brands it's been happening for years before the iPhone came out.

Network locking depends on the laws of the country you buy a phone in.

Be so kind and google for me an iPhone bug without searching for something specific and show me how it's in the first 3 pages!

[deleted post]Everybody knows that unlocking the iphone is a mess & there's tons of scams.

The guy was simply stating that "yes there is a risk in unlocking" and "upgrading" is a waste of money.

Don't be paranoid.

The public would catch up with iphone's gimmick, if it's indeed purely a marketing scheme, but obviously it is not. After 3 years, it's still a very popular and wanted phone. Where is your proof that Apple manipulates results in Google? That is a very strong accusation. If that is true, then why don't you present your evidence to the FBI Internet Division. That way Apple can be exposed and be shut down. Isn't that what you want. I dare you.

that they force you to use it. Once you've bought it on contract you can't even sell it since it's tied to your sim...

The only thing you are allowed to to is either throw it away or "upgrade" to a newer model which you get for 100-200$ cheaper while they milked from you 1000$!

Such a rip off!
