there are many brands of cellphone that we choose from. But Apple company, in recent years has penetrated the market of gadget; from music players to video players and finally mobile phone. Its popularity, perhaps can be attributed to MAC book, ipod nano/video. The newest gadget from apple maybe the iphone. How is it different from other cellphones? Do you think it is worth buying an iphone? Are the features of this phone is much superior than the other brands?

I have an iPod touch. I don't really want to buy an iPhone here in the US because I have had a bad experience with the only carrier that has them AT&T. Its not that the features are superior, its that the features actually work, and developers make applications because Apple basically distributes the apps for very little profit which makes the developers want to make more.

Apple is a style device. There is more cool factor in owning an ipod than a blackberry. There are a lot apps for the iphone that u can keep trying and trying. The feature set is not superior to the others. Its a great device neverthless

i don't like iphone at all as smartphone!!So normally the great marketing machine of apple will be really good especially towards people that want the new trendy and stylish gadget in high-tech and so they will give you to a price totally over the market and this is not as good!! I think configuration,os and in many cases features of the iphone are not as good to justify the so expensive price for this device..so i will choose surely other brands as nokia,blackbarry,palm or samsung and not apple as sure!! as regards computer i like much more pc thna mac as os and fetaures so i never bought one and i think also in the future i will choose for a pc brand thna apple and mac one!!so may be apple products are beautiful from an external view but you consider that they are so expensive and also their softwares are expensive and give you many limitations just because they want ask you other money..i never found interesting a company that thinks link that in the big high-tech universe available nowadays!!

well frankly speaking.....dont mix up Apple's MAC book and Apple's Iphone...Aplle MAC book is the best....with its own OS...but when it comes to Iphone....den its on the cell phone sector where being indiffent is a bit difficult....bcoz.....mobile technology is almost same in every cell phones....only the name changes....of the software....rest remains the same....but wen it comes for iphone it was the 1st mobile dat was introduced with no keys...the mobile was fully a feather touch fone...really different from any other cell fones...touch screen was dere in the market but feather touch was the new concept......Iphone consisted a OS dat was called mini version of OSX Leopard.....mini version of TACTAPAD was 1st introduced in Iphone.....later many other companies like blackberry inroduced more new features including the feather touch concept.......was much improvised......but Iphone was the best of the lot.....any features dat u want in the fon u can dwnld it and den use it......Nokia later introduced this features in their fon.....but Iphone was the best of the lot......it consisted of a good sound quality.....watching movie in a cell phone was never good...... before Iphone introduced its mean machine.......camera was excellent....a clear pic can b captured.....really the fone is really a unique piece and the makes the person proud who ever possess it.....so i wud suggest buying an Iphone wudnt b a blunder....

I don't know anything about the iphone except that the battery isn't all that good, and it doesn't last very long at all. I do have an ipod touch, which is like the iphone, as it has the same apps, except you can't talk on it. That is as close to an iphone I ma going to get. I am not on AT&T anyway, and they are the only provider that has the iphone. I am with verizon, and they have nice phones as well, and I just bought an LG enV touch, and I just love it. A lot to learn on how to use it though, but I have been reading up on it, and getting it figured out. Have a great day, and happy mylotting.
