I don't know who this guy is, but for what it's worth:Who knows when the iPhone comes out in canada please someone tell me i really cant find out when it comes out and if u can can u plaese give me the price thank u
Right now, I don't think the public knows. The iPhone is apparently a closed platform (for now) which means that the only apps on it are ones put there by Apple before you buy it.What application chan run on iPhone ?
Is it java or j2me or other compatible?
They got it right with the iPod. I think in order for Apple to create a stunning design, they needed to go with an internal battery. The battery will be a critical piece to the success of the iPhone.Hi, Chris. Can you confirm that the iPhone does not have a removable battery? Seems like a risky choice for a phone.
GSM is the wireless technology used by Cingular and T-Mobile in the US. It is also the predominant technology in Europe. According to Google definitions, [SIZE=-1]GSM: Global System for Mobile communication. A European digital standard for mobile or cellular telephonyWhat does GSM mean?
My guess is that you should plan on $80+ with a standard plan along with unlimited data.Thanks much.....
I am curious as to what Cingular will charge for their service. I mean with the iPhone costing $499 and $599 I would hope that Cingular cuts a break with the cost for web browsing, text messaging and email.
Any speculation on the cost? I have Verizon now and will switch when the iPhones are available. I just hope they don't sock us like $100 a month for all the services.
If you're asking if a voice message will be transated into a text message, I'd bet the farm the answer is no. This requires voice recognition software which is most certainly not ready for primetime, particularly over a wireless connection. The innovation of the iPhone's voicemail treatment is that you can select any message to hear withoug going through all of them in order (a parallel vs serial algorithm).Does the "visual" voicemail as they call it, also show you the voicemail as a text?
There's still a lot we don't know. I think there's more that we don't know than that which we do. That being said, I think a few speculations are safe. One safe one is that turning off the phone will not disable it. There's no point in having a mobile phone if, when "off," it can't passively listen for incoming calls, messages, or push mail. The On/Off button will turn off the screen and save power. The wireless radio will still be on. It's possible that there'll be a way to further save power by actually turning off the wireless radio, possibly by holding down the On/Off button (the way, say, a Treo works).When you press that does it literally "turn off" the phone so that it can't receive phone calls or does it just put it to "sleep" to conserve energy but can be "awaken" for incoming media (such as phone calls, emails, instant messages, and the like).
This has already been demoed. You need to slide your finger left-to-right to activate the iPhone after turning it on. This eliminates accidental input. One thing it wouldn't do, however, is prevent your pocket from accidentally turning on the iPhone, draining the battery while it waits for you to slide your finger across the screen. This may be addressed with an auto-timeout feature or a lock button like an iPod has. (One might argue what's the point of the finger slide if you first neex to do a button slide. Good point.) I think to answer an incoming call the finger slide is necessary (so your pocket doesn't answer it) but the On/Off button is bypassed.Also, if you are going to put it in your pocket, do you have to hit that little button? I'm confused. If you don't want random input on your phone you need to be able to "disable" it in some way before you put it away. The only way I saw to do that was to push the little button on the top, and when it rings do you still have to push the button, slide the slider, to get into the phone in order to answer a call? That seems like a lot of work.
So do we! The upcoming edition of Macworld has a cover story on the iPhone. We'll see if they've scooped anything new.I wish there were a LOT more demos out there.
From Apple's website for Battery life...The feature of receiving calls while the phone is "off" could be a life saver as it will probably extend the battery life fairly long. Does anyone know what the expected battery life on the iPhone will be? This is one of the major downfalls of my current phone. As to what has been posted about the iPhone voicemail, it would seem logical for Apple to provide this. I believe that there are actually a few companies already converting voicemail into text. I appreciate the response.
