The iPhone is more or less a copy of the Nokia N95.

The main differnce being the iPhone has a touch screen and the Nokia N95 will be in the shops first (March in the UK).

Plus, the Nokia supports MMS.

I dunno about it being a copy of anything tbh.

check out this CBS video

The interface is pretty awesome, check out the part where they zoom in on the picture. Looks damn tasty to me!

Well I refuse to use quicktime, so I am unable to see the keynote.
But I have a couple of questions that I can't find on the website.

What sensor does the camera use? CCD or CMOS?
What earphones does it come with? Crappy iPod ones?

TBH:
The battery life is average at best
The phone is huge
I bet it requires iTunes and Quicktime
No MMS and UMTS support is stupid

As for the copying:
http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?...e=pp&pid=10391 just add the camera, and change the keypad to touchscreen.

Some downfalls of this device is that it is not 3G compatible, does not have wireless itunes downloads, you cannot add software, you only get what apple dictates, you cannot remove the battery either. Also in order to get one, you have to sign a 2 year contract, and it only works with one carrier. Not such a great deal if you ask me. It does not compete with smartphones at all.

Alas, it doesn't have to compete with anything, it's Apple, they never had to learn to compete!

I gotta agree with Daniel ~ on this! The iPhone has one major thing going for it - it's desireable not just for you or me, but for anyone on the street, not only is it sleek and modern looking, the interface is pretty and easy to use, but it can also do everything that your average person could want, AND its an Apple!

Competition is vicious in this area. Does Apple loyalty usually carry over to their other stuff with those who don't see the worm? ":O}

As far as I can see it does.

At work (the small area I work in), we have 2 mac users, both with iPods (latest video, and latest nano), and will be getting this phone.

We have 2 others with just iPods, they will be getting this phone.

My partner has an iPod, and wants this phone, and states the short comings, are irevellent, and she knows better. She was a long time nokia supporter, over and above anything else - wouldn't even bother looking, until I got a sony W800i, then changed to comparing all phones, regardless of brand (except sharp, and sanyo). Now its only the iPhone.

They are also all trying to convince me, that nobody, could ever, not even if they stole the plans, could possibly come up with anything that will be close to equivalent, in the next 5 years. Let alone now.

Being apple is a big selling point.

The bulk of mobile phone sales are to the network providers, who then pass them on to us as part of their contract deals.

This is who Apple needs to be selling to, if they're going to sell the iPhone in any great quantity.

Given that the phone is a mismatch with European networks, it doesn't look very promising for them in Europe. Perhaps they will come up with a European version?
