Sorry Apple but your Retina display was the only advantage over other phones on the iPhone 4 and even then you stuffed up by using a resolution that nobody could actually see! Other companies are producing phones that integrate with your digital lifestyle as seen in this Nokia video. Enjoy!
This video says it all. Even though the iphone is sold globally it continues to have its feature set restricted by a single telco in the US. So if you live in the UK, Europe or Australia and you own an iphone you can thank Apple and AT&T for crippling Facetime. Which by the way is a feature that has been available on most 3G phones since 2004.
The iphone is the only phone we know of as of the time of writing where you have to pay the manufacturer $99 just to run software that you have written for your own phone on your phone. All other manufacturers – Nokia, Blackberry, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Android etc will allow you to run whatever you have written for your device on your device. Imagine having to pay Microsoft $100 to run the application you wrote on your own computer.
Ridiculous isn’t it! The iphone only offers one programming language to build what you want where smartphones allow multiple development environments using C/C++, Python, Java and so on. Another reason to avoid the iphone like a plague.
If you own an iphone or the new ipad then you’re missing out on a huge list of the world’s favourite sites. From gaming to video to porn. If you’re thinking of buying an iphone think again – there are phones out there like the Android, most Nokias and Windows Mobile based phones. Here’s some examples.
