I do not by any means like apple.. However, I am not sure what to think of the new iphone.. Believe it or not my first reaction to any device is to give it as fair of a chance as possible. (For example.. the idea of a "tablet" computing device is still one I personally dislike and will avoid.. be it any other device or an apple device) however, I'm not sure what to think about the new iphone.. Glass on both sides? While that does have potiental.. (Apple may be able to pull a backtrack like the backflip type thing).. I worry about what will happen if the phone is dropped.. I am impressed apple stuck the same processor as the iPad into the iPhone.. In terms of speed that is probably going to be mind boggling.. However It leaves me to question if it will affect ipad sales... It does leave me to question why go for an ipad.. when the new iphone has the same processor.. and sure the ipad is much bigger.. however.. my biggest problem with smaller devices in the past has been the fact they felt much slower than regular sized computers.. Even the snapdragon satisfies me personally there from my experiences so far.. However, people will be happy to have the faster product anyway and I don't begrudge them for that. All of you by now surely know of my distaste for apple.. and I must admit it is impressive to some degree. Apple knows what it is doing in terms of getting customers.. and if it is true about the sensors being the same size as in the 3 mp camra.. They deserve their kudo's for creating a higher quality camra.. However, I have to look at something else.. Apple iphone has had what is arguably (please don't argue it.. there is another thread for that) the best user experience for ap hone.. However, it has trailed behind somewhat in terms of hardware.. So while it does seem like an impressive device, I am wondering if in some ways it should have been more. There are people who don't care for the current iphone os and while it is unknown what feature's or how the user experience is going to be handled on the newest iphone.. Is it going to address any of the concerns of the people who don't care for apple but, aren't pro android or win mo or symbian.. I think the question as it is now.. is who is going to do the most with their hardware.. Now one thing I AM very interested in is if it is possible to squeeze more out of the snap dragon.. This could very quickly become an AMD vs INTEL war for those of you who know more about cpu's. Can android up the performance of the snap dragon? or is it already running at max efficiency? I am also interested in the comment about how many pixles the human eye can perceive.. I find it amazing I haven't heard more about that from monitor manufacturers. One major issue for me also is I wonder if this phone is really a "game changer".. Sure the first iphone was impressive.. but, it changed the market... Many phone's up'd the ante on the iphone's over time.. but, none of them have ever really been as sought after as the iphone.. Anyone who sells phone's on any carrier has probably been asked about the iphone at least once on many different occasions by different people.. And it is true that for a while.. no phones really touched it as far as what people want.. However, now.. Iphone has been out for a while... these things are impressive.. But, I think it is dangerous to say it is "as impressive as the first iphone".. And with that said.. My personal interest still sway me more towards open source for many reasons.. (I toy around with linux time to time since before I even heard about android or maemo) and now.. I must admit not much has changed.. I am wondering if this will be enough to convince people who were on the edge.. Let the races begin! Lets please keep this friendly..
