Reply ted on September 10, 2008 at 1:07 pm dude..why the mask…and what’s with the voice… Reply Tom on September 10, 2008 at 1:27 pm I hope that this is not the final product OR it really isn’t as bad as it looks otherwise looks like I am going out to finally get my iPhone Reply CG on September 10, 2008 at 2:00 pm Wow. Ugly UI. Reply MacVicta on September 10, 2008 at 2:04 pm What do you dislike, Tom? I thought it was nice. Might be kind of bulky but it’s certainly attractive. I like the way RIM is milking the accelerometer to make more use of a landscape orientation, something Apple fails to do. For many the iPhone feels great when you hold it horizontally and browse and type with both hands in Safari so why not expand it to other areas outside the browser? Seems RIM has tapped into this idea. Users will appreciate the option and reviewers will note it a big plus over the Storm/Thunder’s main rival. Reply Jono on September 10, 2008 at 4:06 pm It seems his dislikes are mainly themes or options that can easily be changed. Hopefully RIM will give users the ability to make those changes. Reply mal on September 10, 2008 at 6:08 pm My question is does it have one touch voice command or do you have to go through a bunch on menus to find it. Other than that it looks ok! Oh buy the way. Do you have a definitive release date? Reply Dan on September 10, 2008 at 7:19 pm Darn… the video has already been pulled. RIM’s lawyers are quick! Reply Thought on September 10, 2008 at 11:56 pm One can only hope that the final version is better than what’s shown in this video. However, one has to question RIM’s decision to go with that flexible, “pushable” screen. They had better get it right, or else it will be a fiasco. I will reserve judgement until I see the device, but for now I can see the potential for wear and tear, as well as just not being as pleasant a user experience. One of the great things about the iPhone, that no one else has mastered, is that it the touch screen is so smooth and responsive. It works as one would imagine in a scifi show; I credit this to Apple’s vast amount of software expertise. Reply bluehorseshoe on September 11, 2008 at 12:39 am I’m sticking to the physical keyboards until someone gets it right. Didn’t see the video, but I can only assume. I just had a lunch with a sales guy from an IT company and as a reward for good sales, the sales people in his company get iPhones for business. Well…he can’t stand his, nor can the rest of the sales team. Erratic coverage by AT&T, no tethering, hated the keyboard were some of the reasons. Said he’d prefer to go back to his old Tilt or a BB. IMO, the iPhone has great initial appeal, but after use, it fades away if you’re a heavy business user. In addition…I also saw a couple of guys walking off an elevator in my building with Bolds. I don’t want to name the company, but it looks like they may be already in distribution to ‘certain’ companies. One guy couldn’t take his eyes off it, thus why I noticed. All I’ll say is that it’s a very large company that does most of its business with the government. Just waiting for the day VZW gets the Bold. For now I’ll hang on to my Pearl.
