if say you could keep 4-6 movies AND a few hundred pictures to show granny and 250+songs like the shuffle.
I have 3 Movies from iTunes, and now the Keynote is downloading.
Pirates of the Caribbean is 1.64 GB
Pirates of the Caribbean 2 is 1.74 GB
Casanova is 1.26 GB
The Macworld 2007 Keynote is 1.21 GB
That averages out to be about 1.4625 GB per movie, if you factor in that you'll only have around 7 GB to work with on the 8 GB model, you can fit about 4 or 5 Movies on there depending on how large they are. That leaves room for probably a little more then 2 GB of Pictures and Music, unless the system really does eat a full GB.
as far as other apps, i would think to move into enterprise it must be able to at least display word docs, spreadsheets +/- it would be cool to carry your keynote presentation with you....is SJ looking to make enterprise expansion. would a corp hand these out instead of blackberry????
I highly doubt even Apple could pass up the chance for Software expansion, but it's a bit grim at the moment.
if it had an expansion slot so you could add memory
It doesn't have one, the only expansion "slot" is the Dock Connector and the Headphone jack.
is 2.5 g software upgradable to 3g??? if it can be used abroad then don't they have more 3g then us and thus 3g now???. i don't understand this gsm thing would it require a new chip???
I did some light reading (very light reading) on this and 3G requires the Hardware to be in place before you can even think of a Software update. If the iPhone doesn't have the required hardware it won't work with a sotware update.
I DON'T LIKE that the battery isn't consumer changeable, that means if you need a new one (always the case) that you have to send it in and lose your phone for a week or so.....maybe they give out loaner go phones ha ha
Good point, then again maybe they can just open it up and change the Battery right there at the Genius Bar for you.
edge is dialup, webpages are more rich, flash is needed, and internet access needs the speed
EDGE is about 4-5x faster then that, but it's close enough, Flash is needed and I hope it is in Safari
is wifi wimax compatible
No, different standards. WiFi is 802.11 and WiMax is 802.16, but you can stick both in one device, the iPhone won't have WiMax though.
and what about using that screen if it has a protective case.....there is no way i am buying this big dollar gizmo without a good case....like my bodyglove, wont that mess up the screen use???
I highly doubt Apple overlooked this and with 200+ Patents in the iPhone hopefully one of them takes care of this problem
why june???? are they waiting for more 3g?? and how much of each call and data package is apple getting. with this wow phone it would be a snap for mvno, but cingular and all telco don't want the telco monopoly to be eroded by apple. i bet an apple mvno option scared cingular into submission. so does apple get a play from the phone use revenue side??? here was there oportunity to make the dollars
Apple has to wait till June for the FCC to certify the iPhone. They introduced the iPhone so the FCC wouldn't do it for them by releasing a document or something. It wouldn't be a snap to do MVNO, it would be very costly, and Apple chose Cingular because they had a great experience working together on the ROKR, which they chose then because they are the Nation's largest Wireless provider.
