What is so special about the Iphone anyway?

Ok, so I need to get a new cell phone, so I have been checking up on different kinds of phones. And to be honest, I do not get all the fuss about the Iphone. It is sooo expensive (at least where I live) and I don't think it seems worth it. So if you have an Iphone, could you tell me if you think the price you paid for it was worth it? Why do you love it so much? And what exactly is the difference between an Iphone and a Blackberry?

in reality i never understood the big deal if applied to iphone so i think is just a trend and marketing but in reality it is not so perfect as many people thinks...iphone is followed by big marketing campaign that other phones never had..so why?from a technicla point of view iphone i just a phone,the os is closed as apple tradition,if you want more appls you should pay and buy them everytime,prices applied to phone,accessories,appls and mobile plans are really expensive...in reality i just read the specs and proofed it one time and never give me the impression that this phone worth the price they ask to buy it!So i think even other devices ,some cases,are better,have good features and you can save money...bye bye steve job!!

I certainly have no idea of it. I heard my friend say it was so cool, but what so cool about it? So, I agree with you, there nothing special about this so called iPhone, and it just waste of money. Some people spend over $100 per month for the service fee, I don't know if it worth that cost.

I phone is like a Ipod touch but a phone. The thing is you can run cool apps with the Iphone. Other phone companies tried to follow the Apple industry but failed. The cheaper chinese imitation tried but it's not the same. Blackberry is more like a PDA.

I need a phone. Not a device to run applications. What is special(just my opinion) is the price. Wow, I can't see spending the money.

I think it is popular because of all the apps you can install on it. Now, I don't have an iphone, but I do have the ipod touch which is the same as the iphone, but it hasn't got the phone feature. Now, the phone I have now, is an Android phone, and it has a market with lots of apps that I can download and install on the phone, so in a way, it is similar to the iphone, and it is very fast too, as it has a 1 gigahertz processor, which is really fast for a cell phone. I would never be able to have the iphone because I am now eith AT&T, so the ipod touch is the closest thing to an iphone that I am going to get even if I can't call on it. Take care, and have a very good day.
