More Iphone competition
Already available on certain Canon cameras, the automatic image rotation on screen (landscape to portrait) now arrives on the latest KTF DMB phone, the EV-KD370. Thanks to its movement sensor, you can rotate your videos on screen. In MP3 player mode, this cool feature also allows you to switch tracks by simply shaking the phone.

Well, it also makes phone calls and plays mp3's. Not to mention I bet it has a calculator and a browser. And guess what, it can do over the air digital broadcast TV too. Removal storage and hard keys too. Hey, its better than the IPhone!
More seriously, you may not think this is competition to the IPhone, but when the IPhone eventually ends up in Asia its little gimmicks will be even less impressive.

the keyboard doesn't even look "smart-key." but notice how she is selling you the fact that it takes "two" of these things to get the job done and she's wearing a smile so that must mean that she's content with having to carry both of them around.
i'm happy that she's happy

no way, surur. that doesn't hold a candle to the iphone design. incidentally, you seem to be obsessed with the iphone - day and night its seems you try thinking up ways to discredit it.
you probably see this thing in your dreams too.
cripes, put the iphone down and step away from the device for while. sheesh! enough about it already!
The last time I posted in this thread was 3 days ago. I think Olvarez is much more obsessed with defending this vapourware than I am discrediting it. At least you are now aware there is another phone that changes screen orientation based on a sensor, and is hopefully slightly less awed by the smoke and mirror show that is the Iphone.

surer says of me: "obsessed with defending the iphone"
if "looking forward to the release of the iphone" and "still uncertain about the virtual keyboard" are obsessive remarks i'd hate to know how you label those with more real and undying opinions about the device.
in all actuality, you are the obsessed one. you just don't know it, but we do.
you are funny man, real funny. keep spinnin' it!
looking forward to the release of the iphone because it's ok to.

news.softpedia.com and the phone DOESN'T have a browser and it DOESN'T have over the air digital broadcast TV. It DOESN'T even list any removable storage feature BUT it DOES have a dictionary so you got that goin' for ya'.

You clearly dont know what DMB is ....
Anyway, feel free to educate yourself further, and why dont you improve your google skills also.
It uses microSD expansion (better than Iphone!), has an office viewer (hey, better than the IPhone!), has carrier-based navigation (better than the IPhone!), digital TV (better than the IPhone!), touch sensors, you can answer the phone by shaking it, or go to the next track by shaking it, etc etc. Only $450, available now!
Archie, its sad really. The IPhone sounds so left behind these days.

Not for the US. That may be the reason people are so happy over here. We don't get anything this good. The carriers water down the phones and limit selection. What you may not realize as a UK citizen is you have better phones to begin with than the US, so maybe that's why the iPhone is no big deal to you.
I've seen UK carrier phone line-ups, they put US carriers to shame.

I know what DMB is, it just wasn't listed on the page that I found. Thank you for providing that translated Korean based web page.
Yes, perhaps my Google skills are not very high, but I still see no mention of an internet browser on your link. Is there something missing in the translation that I am not seeing?

As far as DMB goes, Apple has the iTS model. They favor the time/place shifting model which is unavailable to this phone you list. But of course, one could always rely on Apple's internet browser to get broadcasted content - which you apparently cannot do with your phone. And don't even get me started with the multitude of supported media types (ie: AAC, support for Apple's omnipresent Fairplay, MP3, VBRs, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV, and importing/converting of WMF, MPEG2, MPEG4 and .h264).
Not to mention the interface.
Archie, the IPhone is cool, no denying. Its just not the greatest phone in the world. This phone isn't either. It has some great features however, and should put the IPhone in perspective, which is the point of the whole thread.
