I don't think we'll see the 3G Iphone in 2008. ATT and Microsoft are still sitting on a ton of inventory that they know they won't move when the new models comes out. Not to mention they haven't even submitted it to FCC for approval
Jobs' magic number was 10 million phones sold globally by 2008. There is NO way his arrogance would let Apple introduce the 3G iPhone before this number is hit. He announced 4 million at MacWorld a few weeks ago, and with a rumored $100 drop for the iPhone/iPod touch in the coming months, Apple should feasibly hit it with the introduction of the SDK this month. I'm assuming that the SDK becomes an instant hit to attract more buyers.
Regardless, the US and especially Europe need a 3G phone. Sales in Europe are poor due to its absence.
Keep a lookout for their conferences in June and September.
Regardless, this SE phone is my next phone if a 3G iPhone doesn't come out this year. The only thing that's keeps me from selling my iPhone is its browser. Which browser is included, SBU?
Don't know included but its easy enough to add opera mini to any phone
I tried Opera Mini on my HTC Touch and I wasn't impressed. I'm really spoiled by Safari, I guess.
I doubt at&t is picking this phone up, so it's probably going to cost more than the n95 when it was released.
This is a nice looking phone with great specs. A huge step forward for WinMo design...
Touchscreen on Windows mobile STILL blows though.
You can window dress it all you want, until Microsoft makes the WHOLE interface top to bottom FINGER firendly, I'll stick with my non-touch WM phone.
There is a whole slew of new browsers either just out or about to be out for WinMo.
PC Mag has a roundup of some of them:
