iPhone, The Gold Standard
I was reading a Voyager review the other day, and three simple words summed it up for me. “It’s No Iphone!”
iPhone has become the gold standard in which every other smartphone released after June 29, 2007 will be measured against. It’s like the iPod—Everything is compared to the iPod. Steve should be proud!
Now that most the major cellphone companies have some sort of touch screen released or being released, you are going to have a hard time seeing a review without the word “iPhone.”
It just makes me that much happier to know that I have the gold standard of technology. You should be happy too.
While the iPhone is not perfect it’s simply amazing and I think it will only get better over the years.
Only dumbass Americans think this knowing only RAZRs and other free for subscription shit. The iPhone is a fashion phone not smartphone, dumbass.
A Smartphone combines the functions of a cellular phone and a handheld computer in a single device. It differs from a normal phone in that it has an operating system and local storage, so users can add and store information, send and receive email, and install programs to the phone as they could with a PDA. A smartphone gives users the best of both worlds—it has much the same capabilities as a handheld computer and the communications ability of a mobile phone.
A smartphone is a mobile phone offering advanced capabilities beyond a typical mobile phone, often with PC-like functionality. There is no industry standard definition of a smartphone. For some, a smartphone is a phone that runs complete operating system software providing a standardized interface and platform for application developers. For others, a smartphone is simply a phone with advanced features
Sebhelyesfarku, there are countless other definitions of “smartphone”. Meanwhile, definitions of “fashion phone” focus on the phone’s appearance, and typically have some sort of fashion designer cross-marketing.
iPhone - hmmm, is the multi-touch screen, accelerometer, 8GB of memory, wi-fi, and OS X underpinnings (the SDK has launched, btw) for “show” or for “go”?
Well, you must be happy with your techno-biggot self, no?
i’m not defending sebhelyesfarku, but i would argue that you’re the bigot here.
you HAVE TO believe the iphone is the best mobile device available.
your limited knowledge of existing smartphones available in asia and europe probably helps.
stop comparing the iphone to that sub standard motorola your boyfriend owns and open your eyes.
look at forums regarding the iphone and you will find mindless defences of the iphone from people that could only fall into one of two categories:
idiotic selfish schoolboys and sociopaths.
“youre just jealous you dont have the cash to afford one” is common as is ignoring the fact the piece of junk cant do this or that “but its ui is amazing”.
whether its “...ui is amazing” is a subjective viewpoint but certainly valid.
however it cannot create and edit office software so its neither as smart nor as revolutionary as marketing jackass jobs seems to think.
an enterprise mobile device or pda might not be as pretty as the iphone but at least its intelligent enough to cope with the creation of even basic computer applications like databases and documents.
by contrast the iphone looks AND thinks like jessica simpson.
