I'm not sure what you arguing here? Are you deciding for us what is of value?
- 06-23-2007, 03:03 PM #34
exactly, not arguing anything. you could give me a Treo for free and i still wouldn't want one. i never said the iPhone is worth $600. it is what it is and next week we'll know that much more. it will not replace my Pearl, that much i'm certain of.

Interesting concept...the worth of anything. Of course it's relative, and it ties into supply and demand, along with residual values. Will there be a large demand for iPhones? Initally, I would think most would agree that there would be. After launch and word of mouth gets out, it will either continue to be high, be strong enough to continue sales, or be an iFlop. I think many will have to consider the cost of having one device, or two for the ultra-business user, and what they get in the iPhone.
I'm just hoping it functions close to as well as the videos show. Who knows? Maybe I'll continue on with my banged up T650.

EDGE is too slow for any smartphone. Period.
Maybe okay for you Moto phone looking at WAP sites.
The fact that this is a NEW phone that costs $600 and does not have 3G is lame.
It wouldn't be "great" if the iPhone has 3G - it would be parity.

The bottom line is that 3G is the future (which is here now) and EDGE will disappoint. And more so than most other cell phones.

I also can't believe that this thing is launching without 3G. What a colossal mistake. Some of the coolest things in the Apple demo will be a flop without 3G. Safari may be a great browser, but everyone will think it stinks simply because of its pitiful speed. And forget streaming video...that's a joke. And the download time on an HTML email with 2 MB of imbedded pictures will have people cursing at Steve Jobs. Same with the Calamari restaurant finder.
But here is the beauty of Apple's marketing. The devices will already be sold and past their 30 day trade in before the typical ipod crowd can figure this out. They will all say how they love the phone and that it would be perfect if it just had 3G. Then Christmas will roll around, when everyone isn't so uptight about loosening up the purse strings, and Apple will announce the new 3G versions of the iPhone. And everyone will go out and spend another $600 on the now-perfect phone.

that's my point; the lack of 3G does not diminish or reduce demand, that is unless you think 15-20mm in unit sales is a small number. many posters around here require it, consumer america doesn't necessarily need it.
yes it's nice but it isn't a requirement.
and how many Treos have 3G capability? and how long have they been being sold for?
