No iPhone Killers Yet
So much has already been written about the iPhone and it’s yet to be released, surely a good sign for Jobs and his fruity technology company. Of course, just like the iPod, manufacturers and critics are already looking at Apple’s device as the standard for next generation mobile phones, so it’s no surprise the term “iPhone killer” has cropped up in the press already. We’ve seen the likes of the LG Prada, and the Samsung F700 already been labelled as iPhone killers, but neither have really sparked as much interest as the iPhone itself.
Anyone who is down with mobile phones and been following this blog will know that last week saw the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona offer a variety of new ‘next generation’ phones, almost all being labelled as a ‘music phone’. This was a sure sign that Apple had some competition to face in the coming months, but according to PC Advisor, none of the phones on offer at the 3GSM World Congress were anything particularly special, and even the new touch-screen range was either too complicated to use or didn’t take into account larger than life fingers. Nokia and Sony Ericsson are said to have a variety of good phones on offer, but none really bring a new way of listening to music or operating the phone, rather sticking to traditional standards which are some-what cumbersome.
Take a read of the article and see what else was said about Samsung, Motorola and even Neonode.
