Definitely upwards of $600. I would get one but I'm not about to pay anything more than $15 for a phone.

Well, looking at Apples previous products, it looks like it might be decent. It's got some great features, and also has a faster internet connection than other phones.

I'm going to bet that you're biased against anything Apple.

iPhone will probably work well and sell well, becoming, essentially, the iPod of phones. It'll be expensive, it'll do much more than anyone possibly needs something of that kind of machine to do, and new versions of it will come out every half year.

Estimates place the unit at as high as $599+tax for an 8GB edition and $499+tax for a 4GB edition. High end plans look to be around 100 a month(60 for voice, 40 for media).

For an 8GB edition that would make the first year cost just about $2000 with service plan.

Declination in price of about 20%/year for the units are expected to follow.

No I love Ipods Im Just saying that the iPhone is going to be shit... I mean jesus christ the damn thing doesnt even have a keypad... Its going to get annoying having to use voice and touchscreen commands to get the phone every-day usable.

That is absolutely absurd. I'll stick to my verizon chocolate phone and save the 400 dollars for other things (I typed "hookers" here and thought it was funny. OMC did not, so he changed it.)

OMC here again. I'm willing to bet you don't pay your own cell phone bill? Am I right?

I'd stick with the Mortorola Razr, or the Slvr. only reason to buy the iPhone, is if you have that much money and don't know what to do with it. But don't take me for example, I'm only 14.

When did Substance become such a loser bumfucker?

Anywho, I think the iPhone will make it's way into the hands of many just becuase it says Apple on it. I am VERY happy with my MotoKRZR K1. And as for the Sidekick 3, I grabbed ahold of it's powers from my friend on the bus ride home one evening and it almost made me change plans. I'm just not that big a fan of paying for media services. We are at the 1500 minute plan with Cingular. Very pleased with my service. They hate my Mom though. It's great.

See, normally you provide intelligent reasoning for your feelings, not just, ITS AWESOME COZ ITS AWESOME LOLZ.

There are so many fatal flaws in the iPhone, but I believe they wil all be overcome by total fan-boy-ism. The iPhone is going to sell like mad simply because its an iPhone.

And seriously SubstanceAbuse, I read your other thread, stop being such a bitter shitcunt.

It's so obvious. The first generation of iPhones are going to suck then Apple is going to release a "better" version (that still sucks) for more money. I hope they don't make a "iPhone Shuffle" and take out the screen.

Anyways, get a regular phone for way cheaper... if you really like Apple that much but you don't have the money to buy an iPhone when it gets released, just take your regular cellphone and write Apple iPhone on it.
Seriously though... don't get anything made by Macintosh, they suck.

Apple usually keeps prices constant, while increasing capacity and features, and/or reducing size. If features are roughly constant, size decreases as well as price. Consider a 1st gen iPod and a current gen Nano.

I hope they don't make a "iPhone Shuffle" and take out the screen.

They put to pockets on pants for a reason. One for you cell phone, one for you music/media player. And for some, they ahve to buy a friggin' mini PC just so that they can call themselves the shit and others just plane shit. I dislike iPod and Apple for my reasons picky as they can be. The latest one though, because the older ones are now fixed, is that they want to sell as many video iPods as they can. So they jack the rpice of a little shitty 1 gig player up to 80~100 bucks and have a 30 gig player at what, 250? Clearly you see the better deal, and if you don't buy iPod as soon as you hear i, then you see my point. My other problem is also where they release updated version after updated version where they could have just sat back and gotten it right the first time. Look at Zune, nothing wrong with it yet.

They have just been that prep side to media players to me. The first media player I ever owned from a Rio. And I still have it. First iPod I ever touched it froze up on me.

When I called you a retard, or whatever the hell it may have been edited to, I was talking about how you saw "ipods" in Matt31's post, yet you read iPhones.

Look right there, it's all right there for you to see.


On topic-
After a quick glance at the tech specs on Apple's website, I would never use the iPhone purely for the battery life. I mean, I expect this from Apple, I've never seen an Apple product that didn't drain a shitload of unnecessary power while in 'sleep mode'. Plus, the on-screen touchpad is another big turn-off. I don't know about you, but I don't like to smear my LCD screens.

You do realize how much smaller the shuffle is, right? It's called miniaturization. Not just of the HDD, but of all the other circuits.

Plus, 250 isn't that great a price for a 30GB player either.

I doubt the iPhone is going to be good. To me, it looks like an overrated, overpriced phone with the iPod logo on it. Sure it has nice little features like the button sensor auto correct thing. And it can play music like an iPod. But, like RAMBO stated, for one year of service, it's going to cost you around $2000. That's rediculous for a phone.
I don't hate Apple, so I'm not just saying this because I think Apple sucks or whatever. I think the iPhone will be released for the same reason the Zune was released - just to try and compete with the market. Except all those hardcore Apple fans will actually go out and spend all their money buying one of these.
I'm perfectly fine having my iPod and my phone seperate. It's way cheaper, and it works just as good.

Does anyone know the battery life on one of those iPhones? iPods seem to have a low enough battery life, and that's just with playing songs.
Nevermind... Rambo beat me to it.

Apple should come out with something original. Maybe... An iRack... Yeah... Genius.

I also think it's funny how they release 30gb iPods (I think it's higher now) and people buy them.. only using 1-2 gigabytes. Some guy in my class had one and it said he was only using 0.1% of all the space. What a dumbass.

Rambo, you are treading DANGEROUSLY close to a ban. I just booted Substance for the weekend. Do not make me regret not banning you. When I say knock it off, i mean KNOCK IT THE FUCK OFF!

That means be a bigger person and DO NOT respond to stupid posts. It did not need a response. That is all.

For the record, Apple sucks it, hard. There ridiculous operating system is devoid of anything useful and is full of "flashy" and unnecessary bullshit. Widgets? Fucking awesome, let me fill up my "dashboard" and bog down performance. Yes I need to have a chuck norris fact generator and a make my own light saber thingie, but real applications, BAH!

Don't even get me started with their awful file archiving system. Mac OS is the worst. It's un-user friendly and a general pain in the ass to find anything. By the way, why hasn't apple gotten with the times? I "recycle" my stuff on a PC, but I still have to "trash" everything on a mac. With the rising of gas prices.....the er.....ozone depleting....global warming something or other......whatever I just know you HAVE to recycle.

Can anyone tell me WHY macs are better for graphics? I know graphic artists in the business for nearly 15-20 years and they can't tell me why. "Everyone knows they are better" or "That's just the way it is." Bullshit. Tell me why.

Fuck Apple. Fuck Steve Jobs and his stupid fucking Mock Turtle Neck. That asshole can't even wear a "real" shirt, only a "pretend" one. What the fuck is that? O yea, your logo and asinine keyboard key SUCK too.

The difference isn't nearly as great as it used to be, but two reasons are:

1)Sub-pixel font rendering. On Windows, a typeface will be physically changed to fit into the pixel grid. For example, bolds are heavier than in print, and typefaces can look lighter than print. A Mac's font rendering is truer to the actual printed page.

2)Better color management. Workflow color management is overall better, as software solutions are built into the system.
