Keep using your crashy WinMO Q and the pathetic excuse of a browser. If you would have actually used an iPhone, you would know what the hype is about. You obviously did not.

Really ? Why is it not a decent phone ? And who the hell said this is a phone for the business world ? As far as i know it doesn't support exchange sync on BES so it was never meant for that. But give it some time and it will be.

You need to drop some of that lame fanboism and state some facts in your arguments if you want to look less ridiculous.

I love it when people need to resort to putting an i in front of every other word just to be able to make it seem like their statement has a point.

Ok where to start ?

Can't load an exchange web panel from its wifi or even on its cell web.

The wifi doesn't support radius so as to actually secure the tunnel.

Can't run a vpn app from the handheld since they locked it down. So much for security.

It doesn't synch well with outlooks phonebook.

For awhile it was flooding our cisco AP's off the network and killed almost all wireless use for most workers.

At&t's network coverage sucks.

The phone reception is horrible compared to my at&t razr v3 which is a mountain times worse then the Q. I can't take the phone anywhere else in the world and just insert the local companies sim to save us both data and phone charges.

The touch screen has to be unlocked to answer the phone ! Why ?

I am anything but a fanboi , I am fair and balanced and feel that each phone has it's role. This one has it's role as a toy phone.

This is all stuff a normal user would not be doing on their phone.

This was an issue with Cisco as the university that was complaining of the same issue discovered.

If you're referring to coverage as in areas where they offer coverage then I agree some places will not have good coverage. Otherwise, if by coverage you mean signal strength in an area then I wonder why at&t is the #1 provider in terms of subscribers.

said by BosstonesOwn:

It does not need to be unlocked to answer the phone. If that were the case you would need to unlock the phone and then pick up the call. Instead you just swipe your finger across to the screen to pick up the call.

If it was a toy then it would not actually make any calls and it would be made entirely out of plastic.

I believe he's using the term "toy" like you would use for a plasma TV. "Look at my new 50 inch Toy".

And in that case, he's absolutely correct.

It's a non-Microsoft product targeted at recreational use.

That was determined to be a Cisco problem. Even if it were Apple's problem, it's not like Microsoft's products are perfect on the first shot, either.

I find that comment interesting. My iPhone's cell signal quality is much better than my Samsung Blackjack. We have marginal coverage here at the house, and the iPhone is the first phone I've had (out of many, including Motorola phones) that actually seems to work reliably here. If anything, it's certainly not "mountains worse".

I like that. It means I won't accidentally answer the call taking it out of my pocket. The gesture to answer it is one action and is hardly difficult.

Get back to me when Apple can actually compete against Microsoft in the stock market.

I agree to a certain extent. Now that Apple is using Intel stuff, it's easier to make comparisons. From what I can tell, Apple's hardware isn't generally terribly "overpriced" when it first comes out. Apple tends to offer high end stuff (e.g., the minimum configuration of their Mac Pro tower is a dual Xeon Woodcrest). It was actually cheaper than a comparable Dell Precision workstation. The same was true of my Mac Pro.

Of course, now you look at the same machine, you can get "consumer grade" quad core chips that perform just as well for far less money.

The issue is the price and spec usually stays the same (or close to the same) over the course of the year or two during the product's lifecycle, and they're slow to offer new versions of their products. So depending on where you buy in the product's lifecycle it's somewhere between high end and overpriced. They don't do "bang for the buck".

The upshot to all of this is that Apple has more definitive hardware platforms. Because they hang onto a certain configurations, they are more likely to maintain them and deal with quirks that may arise. You're less likely to end up with an "obscure" model that's hard to find support for.

I suppose. I look on computers as disposable, as it's generally less expensive to replace than repair. Kind of like a CRT TV.

I'm also jaded because I build my own systems, so I don't repurchase the OS and other apps everytime I "upgrade". I end up with superior parts for close to what budget boxes cost, thus they end up being superior in spec to Macs. I don't think ANY of the pre-built systems are good; so I'm not just picking on Macs. They just don't have a budget box for me to compare to.
