Cool... But I hate it how Apple claim to release things on their products which are totally new, but infact they are already out there... I'm talking about the 'find my phone' feature. Quite a few phones have apps written for them already which allows you to do that using the GPS and google maps.

hmm fair call Dan.

I didn't know other phones had that, I thought it was pretty cool about that.

 

Anyone know if the new iPhone has bluetooth capabilites? i.e. sending pictures, music from say a nokia > iPhone

yea i love that they have all these 'new' features which most phones can do already... i really hate the fact that you have to get extra apps for stuff that every other phone can do straight out of the box! (mms for example)

also, they will never allow you to send music, apple are really big on DRM and not sharing ;) pictures, maybe...

i think the biggest peev for me is that the old iphones are missing out on video recording with the new software update.

The 16-gigabyte iPhone 3GS will cost $US199 ($248), and the 32-gigabyte model $US299 ($372), at launch in America. Australian pricing is yet to be released.

 

Now if only our pricing was close to that I would definitely switch to an Iphone but $800 for an 8gb is just ridiculous especially for something I am going to damage/lose in under a year.

Yeah true that, I guess with the iPhone (drawcard) is their internet and acess to the itunes store lets you get this sort of stuff. only things i bluetooth is new songs/ringtones from friends etc

I must be the only one who thinks what Apple tried to do with MMS was good. Seriously Why would you send a 5kb picture when you can email it in full resolution?

No chance the new one will stuff up or play up!!

I can't stand the size of the iPhone.

 

I thought we moved on from lugging around a brick for a phone once everyone got rid of their Nokia 5110.

 

Get a business card, then imagine its 11mm thick. That is the size of my touchscreen phone.

 

Once they make a mini iPhone I'll buy it.

 

Sure, the iPhone functions are cool, but come on. Come oooon.

with the price of the $au as compared to the $us atm, i would think it's too much different... now would be a good time to buy shit from the states

I would have thought that it would need to be an Australian version to work, though?

The prices they list $123 etc are prices for the phone on a plan. They are not that cheap LOL. Look on US EBAY they are still up to $1000 outright.
