The iPhone thread

Apple are holding another event next tuesday. In the Apple store in London. Since it's taking place in the UK it is likely to be UK-Only information. The only thing it could really be is the iPhone.

So it looks like we'll have UK information, including carrier (hopefully O2), and price next week.

Re: iPhone UK Release info

Which links up nicely with the fact the iPhone has been completely unlocked via software, so it isn't tied to a carrier or Apple-approved software

Re: iPhone UK Release info

Sweet, Was just about to go upgrade my phone as I'd been delaying it waiting for the iphone and got bored. I'll wait and see what this is all about. Hopefully the press call to the bbc offices in London last week to watch the US launch of the new ipods also included them being issued with review units of a UK iphone.

Just spotted this on Gizmodo's US site

Re: iPhone UK Release info

Here's the link I was going off of: http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2007/09...ed_w_software/

But looks very similar to HM's. There's going to be a free, GUI app to completely unlock the iPhone soon, or you can unlock it for free, using software now.

Divx on iPhone, also possibly FreeBSD apps, makes the iPhone seem a whole lot more attractive.

Re: iPhone UK Release info

Hmm, im not so sure about the iPhone, looks like a lot of hype for a unit that is functionally retarded.

Looks cool though, i think that's more its selling point.

Indeed, Have to wonder why Apple dont go all out and make it more like a PDA while opening up the iPhone for developers.

Because it goes against Steve Job's ethos and his vision for IT.

Its not about making it a PDA per se, its about making the device consistent with fair use. You pay a lot of money for it, why shouldn't you be able to watch Divx movies on it, just Apple have produced Quicktime? Why be stuck with just stock quotes and weather forecasts and javascript applications?

And now developers have riled against Jobs on this: http://www.regdeveloper.co.uk/2007/0...pers_lock_out/

You can't rely on Apple producing every bit of software that users will need (say like a wifi sniffer) and with Apple keeping rigid control on kernel-mode apps, its extremely anti-competitive and anti-consumer. Put it this way, would Apple produce a wifi sniffer plugin, when that would discourage GPRS use and anger AT&T?

Re: iPhone UK Release info

Just had a loose confirmation from O2 that it should be free on £50+ tarrifs. They are not taking pre orders and are unable to confirm exact pricing. (I should not that they are also unable to confirm if O2 actually have it).

They did say that O2 did pander to Apple when they put the bid in (and it was a very strong bid) and they will be splitting the tarrif charge.

Re: iPhone UK Release info

I hope O2 follow AT&T and offer decent Internet rates than the ones they are offering at the moment.

Having said they, if they do, i'd probably get the Orbit... As its flexible and I won't need to have a running battle with Steve Jobs's ego in a PSP vs homebrew style battle where Apple keep trying to block unlocking/homebrew attempts.

The internet access is going to be the deciding factor on whether I upgrade at all. I'll be getting a company phone very soon so might switch from O2 phone to Vodafone's data card................ we'll see

Thanks for the links all

Re: iPhone UK Release info

O2's data prices are awful. Doubt they'd change them for the iPhone.


Re. the unlock -

As mentioned by Gavin, beware new firmware...

I've been looking at the N95, nice looking PDA, thing is, I've been spoilt IMHO, I've had the XDA range through to the EXEC, haven't got that anymore but still have 2 XDA II 's, what do I upgrade too It's going to have to be all singing, all dancing, more so than what I have already or what's the point ? I'll just be tying myself to another 12 - 18 month contract phone that does what mine do already The 1st of October is now D-Day ( do or don't day )
