no, its massivly overpriced for what it does, and as pritty as it looks, it strikes me as being to big and thin like its gona snap

iv had a look at the ipod equivalent of it and thought the same thing, its not very pocket friendly, id prefer a smaller fatter candybar phone style.

limets the screen size but who wants to watch video on the thing anyway, the screens to small to watch things properly.


having said that if somone wants to gimy one ill take it



and sell it lol

They will need to fly off the shelves to pay for the advertising!

The N95 and iPhone are two entirely different products. The N95 makes absolutely zero attempt to be stylish or aesthetically pleasing. It is essentially just a brick.
The iPhone on the contrast focusses more of the styling and less on the technology.

Which one you'd prefer really depends on the person you are. Neither is better than the other - for that would be like comparing a Land Rover Defender and a BMW M3.

As styling goes, the iPhone has more in common with a brick.

iHype = iFlop

So far, just 26,500 iPhones have been activated on O2 in the UK.

You have to laugh at those who queued up to buy one.

I disagree with the screen size argument. I recently got a Zune when Woot had them for $100 and I've watched Sopranos episodes, movies, and video podcasts on it. The screen size is fine for personal viewing. I mean I wouldn't be watching Star Wars or the Matrix on it, but most content looks just great on a 3" screen. The iPhone has a much better screen than the Zune, I imagine that watching dramas and comedies on it on the bus would be quite enjoyable.

I think this is where Sony messed up with UMD videos for the PSP. Certain stuff works really well on a small portable screen, other stuff doesn't.

You might want to watch some stand-up comedy on it, whilst travelling, for example. But, why would anyone want to watch a big screen movie, like Star Wars, on a small screen?

Sony seemed to just crank out a load of titles on UMD, without much thought.
