Was a bit of a waste for apple really.. they can do better than that - trying to expand into unknown areas like that is always a risky move.. take Virgin for example.. they had clothing and cola at one point :\

Whats all this then?

do people buy these things just because it's a great piece of kit, or because it actually serves a practical purpose?

I predict nobody will buy this iPhone or whatever it is called. And if it even becomes a moderate success, I will eat my socks, take photos and post them on this very forum. And you can all hold me to that if you remember.

Are you fucking retarted? Yes, you are because I knew that anyway. The iPhone has been one of the most anticipated products since when it was just a mere rumour. The thought of hardly anyone buying this, neigh nobody, is hardly worth questioning. I for one, will invest in this as the video proves it to be a handy piece of kit. I can safely say it's pretty much guaranteed to be a success due to the amount of feedback from before and after the announcement. Infact, if the phone isn't a success I will stick my penis in a blender, bathe my genitaless body in citris acid I dunno, take a picture?

You most likely believe it won't be a success because you yourself have no interest in it, which to you, seems to mean that everybody will have the same amount of interest. I'm tired at the moment, so I won't put any effort into this but the news of the iPhone's announcement was released today and upon it's entry into Digg.com, it pretty much recieved well over 10,000 digs in less than 6 hours.

haha... broomie.
Yes it's a little OSX. Mail, Safari, iCal... all the little built in apps. Doubt you'd be running Final Cut Pro on the thing

it's gonna sell like hot cakes. I won't buy one but I can imagine it doing very well indeed. They're hoping to get 1% of the phone market - 10 million units sold. running off the hype this thing has had, the iPod situation etc. Cingular didn't even see the phone before they accepted to work with Apple. That's one confident company.

I don't ever think I've had a mobile phone that works intuitively and well as a FUCKING PHONE. Even my first one had a bunch of superfluous shit and a clunky interface with bloated menus. I know an industry that needs to be murdered in the face with the unix paradigm.

I will hold you to that Broomie.

Surely you must realise that hype doesn't equal units sold. The reason it will fail is because people can already buy most of that stuff already, and people would rather get 5 pieces of equipment than one bloody big one.

No new piece of kit which combines two things in one ever gets sold as much as the stuff it tries to emulate. The jack of trades with lose out to the master. Look at the NGage.

And "digs" (whatever the fuck they are) do not take as much effort as saving up a load of money and spending on what is basically a crap PC.

The advantage of a camera phone over a normal phone is that it can be used for spontaneous camera shots which you wouldn't get usually. This is pretty much the only 2-in-1 combo that works. Hardly anyone thinks, "Ooh, I've got a specific hankering to watch that Final Fantasy film and I can't possibly wait till I get home".

This possibly could be the end of Apple's wave of shite.

LOL FENNER'S AVATAR IS THAT THING FROM THAT STUPID DKI GAME ON WIN98!!!!! (or 95.. can't remember..)

to stay on topic, i wont be getting that phone as I have a Sony Ericsson w810i and 30gb video ipod, so who cares Plus I NEED all of that 30gb for my music so that iPhone wouldn't suffice anyways.

When companies all 'la-dee-da' things up like that, like "iCal" or whatever the "i" it is.. people forget there's already a perfectly fine calendar on their phones already .. in this case its just another gimic product - but they're bound to sell to those gimic-lovers out there, or to those who haven't had a new phone since the Nokia 3210

(Damn you, I was just editing my post <_< )

Anyway, I agree with you Noodle. Usually when they bundle a lot of functions into one device, they are often pretty low quality. And hype doesn't guarantee that people will buy it. NGage was damn hyped up (at least here), and it was still a flop.
