Its still in closed beta. Not sure when its being released. You have to be a authorized beta tester to install it. You get an error message when you try to run it. But i have read that some people are able to force install it.
Whatsapp is getting better? I updated this morning (well it asks you to download the update) and maybe it improved some of the performance issues from before. I wasn't getting push notifications until i opened up the app before, or it was really really delayed. like delayed about a day. My friends keep asking me to do stuff, and I don't get their messages until the next day.
no again thats not the point
I will subscribe because my sister studies abroad and would be nice to chat with her.
If i had an iphone i would pay a one time fee of 99 cents or whatever the price is
because i have android i pay yearly 2$ and not a one time fee.
I would pay gladly only to support such amazing developers for creating amazing software.
Should they charge more on a certain platform more than another? No thats .....phoneism(copyright for making up a new word )?
well then you're taking back your point or I still don't know what it is because now you'll pay the $2 even though somebody got it for free.
There are lots of things like this, I get Swype for free but I'd be just as dumbfounded when I'll hear from other users that will have to pay for it. If they refuse to pay because a stranger got it for free then I'll know to keep my mouth shut.
no phoneism indeed, but it is too late. There is a war going on at least in the minds of people that take brand names way too seriously. The manfs like that we're fighting the battle for them. totally silly.
But things always balance out. iPhoners pay for a lot of things that we droid users take for granted as free or as freedom. But the worst are the carriers, they are the real force behind all this nonsense and differences in capabilities. This phone is a prime example, sold under different names and different configurations depending on where you get it. For me I just wanted the phone with no branding and no contract. I went through 1/2 dozen stores all telling me I must buy a contract despite the clearly labeled price for hardware only. Finally got it but I hope it never needs warranty because the carrier somehow thinks they control the show. Well they do, except in my house. The carriers are simply my ISP when using the device, nothing more.
wow dude i live in kuwait and the only thing the carrier controls is the line itself
you purchase a phone unlocked from any mobile store any pick any line with no contract
prices for minutes are expensive as hell though
Well over here in the not so enlightened states of north america most people don't know anything but contracts. Few have any idea that there is any other way. The few that buy unlocked and no contract are a rare breed and we're not loved by the carriers. The carriers are the gods of telco and they generally suck rocks in many ways including prices.
But then you folks have other problems over there.
The pricing of iPhone is still set at $0.99 USD primarily for historical reasons. It is our aim to move everyone to a single payment model that is priced at $1.99. We feel that if we charge on a yearly basis we will continue to do great things with our people and our technology to provide the best product and service we can offer.
As such, expect iPhone pricing to change in the future.
The Samsung Galaxy S was announced in March of 2010 was a high-end feature packed phone during its day. This was the start of Samsung's global takeover and although this particular phone saw many iterations and variants here in the state and ov... Read More
