No I don't think so. OS X for the iPhone is not the same.

Well well well. They will be selling the current 8 GB model for $99 after all.

So far this is one of the better keynotes I remember.

Yup, plenty of good old apps.

No touch interface for them either in most cases.

And, there are about 30,000 of those old apps as compared to over 50,000 for the iPhone.

That's besides the point. It has MORE apps than Apple. Besides; Apple's apps are mostly all fart apps. YAY; I can run a "stupid tests" on my iPhone. YEEEEEEEES!!! Palm at least had professional apps that people can use in the real world.

Only nice app ( other than speed boost ) new Iphone has that i'd like is Voice dialing ... i wonder if that requires some kind of hardware or someone smart will figure out how to get it working on older 3G model.

Well; the most exciting part for me is the price drop. The rest is pretty much a big fat shrug> I don't care. In fact; since I don't care about the flash size THAT much; for 100$; the 3G's a steal. The rest of the stuff sounds like more abilities for developers to make fart apps. Whoopy.

Now, thats the way to do it.

Most of Palms apps are crap too.

I've been using Palmphones since the Samsung i300. My last was the Treo 700p.

So, I'm pretty familiar with Palms apps.

And unless they drop the prices on most of them by a lot, they will fade away even more quickly than otherwise. Most are no longer worth what is being charged for them.

And I said "about".

Again, I don't see complaining, I see someone asking how it will work and asking for clarification about what specifically can be done.

You don't think so what?

They gave the numbers without iPhone and including iPhone, seems completely honest and transparent to me.

The iPhone/iPod is so vastly different to desktop OS X (in market alone) that the two figures shouldn't be lumped together and it cerrtainly makes a big difference to the stat.

EDIT: Ah well I missed that in reading the text updates... Thanks.

A lot to look forward to and there will inevitably be more surprises throughout the year.

Does you boss at Palm know that you're on an Apple site? Or, is this part of the job description for the day?

Any word on upgraded RAM on the iPhone? I didn't see anything except the storage is going to 32GB.

I don't know why. They really aren't the same to the user. About three years ago there were almost 40 million Mac users, most being PPC. Many of those weren't on OS X.

Since then they've sold about 30 million machines, so I don't know. Maybe.

You really don't know as much as you think you do and you're on the wrong site to try to get away with that. One of the big guys here is going to show up shortly and they'll take good care of you.

I'll enjoy watching.

Have a nice day.

ATT comes thru as real tech luddites from today's presentation. Hope they get their act together soon (or at least make an announcement as to when they'll do so).

That's too techie for the public show. It would go over the heads of most people.

It is odd. You would think they'd be the first out of the gate, considering their relationship.

Maybe, but I thought this was a public show at a techie conference.

I felt bored during the live feed. Iphone with no new design. Faster ok, but can it make something the iphone 3g can't, apart from the compass functionnality? Video is ok, but nothing revolutionnary.
post #109 of 167
With the release of the iPhone 3GS, are they going to update the iPod touch with the faster processor? Seems like there will be apps that can use it down the road.
post #110 of 167
Have a look a look at this:

Requires new two-year AT&T wireless service contract, sold separately to qualified customers; credit check required; must be 18 or older. For non-qualified customers, including existing AT&T customers who want to upgrade from another phone or replace an iPhone 3G, the price with a new two-year agreement is $499 (8GB), $599 (16GB), or $699 (32GB).

Thank you Apple and AT&T for appreciating your current customers!

I think this might have been misinterpreted. He said "We've tripled the amount of users since iPhone". I think what he meant was that the number of OSX users has tripled as a result of people buying Macs following the purchase of an iPhone, not that the iPhone is included in that statistic. I think some of us just got the wrong end of the stick - it wasn't 100% clear at first.

It would be a great idea to take the 15 minute guided tour on the new iPhone before one puts their foot in their mouth.

Wow. Great keynote. Not good for the pocket though. I was expecting to buy a new iPhone later this month. Seems I need to buy a new MBP as well now :-)

Yep, from Engadget's coverage:

"Here's a chart of OS X users over 10 years." It goes from 5m to 25m. "But something has happening..." he changes the chart to move up to 75m. "We've tripled the amount of users since iPhone."

Like I said, I think he's worded that badly, and I think what he means is that as a result of the iPhone, more and more people are buying Macs, and that's what has pushed up the figures. However, it could be interpreted either way - it's vague at best.

SD is great. 13" has battery for 7 hours- what's not to like?

I know! There should have been more explosions!

Should be easy enough to figure out...has Apple sold 50 million computers to new users since the iPhone first came out about two years ago? Or have they sold that many iPhones plus touches?

I am surprised there was no appearance of Steve here. I also thought there would be a 30inch LED screen as well, not complaining, just surprised. Great show overall
