Not an award winning one, but one that is at least usable.

Well the biggest market for iphones is the USA where picture messaging isn't popular, the camera is way down the list of priorities

I don't take photos to send to people. I take them to keep. Every single photo I've ever taken of James has been with a Sony Ericsson Cybershot.

But.... the music player software is crap on an SE as is the message viewing software. It would be nice if someone would bring out a phone that was all things to all men. If I go for an iPhone, I have to go out an buy a digital camera as well. Which I will never have on me when I want to take a photo, so it's pointless.

I got one of these for Christmas (16GB 3G) and I love it!
Although...
My relationship with the auto-correction system on the keyboard is let's say bittersweet!
The ipod doesn't have a sleep facility
The camera doesn't have a flash or video function

Besides that though I do enjoy it thoroughly. The helicopter game application at 80p or something is a gift from God!

There's an MMS application now that sorts that out for you.

In danger of going a bit off topic, I had this very dilemna before I got my iphone, the camera was bothering me because of the photos of the kids, and was glad to have taken the plunge. Instead of then having the phone/camera problem, I decided that the videos I had of my kids were rubbish as they were being taken on our old stand-alone digital camera. So instead I got an iphone and a separate camera/HD camcorder. Only 150 for a 10mp camera that does 720p HD videos, pocket sized too. Decided that this would serve me better than the phone option. The iPhone camera is good enough for casual pics you're not going to keep though.

And I am now an iPhone bore - I love it and can't believe I ever doubted getting one

Kevin T 21-01-2009 08:29 PM

To be honest I will probably get one.

Just far more options than I'm used to. Half an hour in it's looking good.

During Apple's earnings conference call yesterday, Apple COO Tim Cook fielded a wide variety of questions, but two answers in particular helped shed a bit of light on the likelihood that Apple would enter the netbook market or release a lower end iPhone.

iPhone Nano

The origins of a rumored iPhone Nano stretch back to July 2007 when a JP Morgan analyst essentially made it up out of thin air (citing "sources" in the supply channel). Since then, other analysts have chimed in and noted that if Apple truly wants to garner significant market share in the smartphone market, it needs to offer a variety of iPhone models at different price points.

Over the past few months, rumors about a cheap iPhone Nano have taken various forms. Some predicted an iPhone with a smaller screen, while others speculated that Apple would release an iPhone Nano with limited functionality (i.e, no access to the App Store). Adding fuel to the flames of speculation were case renderings for an iPhone Nano like device that were recently posted online by case manufacturers.

Tim Cook, however, squashed any notion of an iPhone Nano at Apple's conference call. In response to a question about iPhone pricing, Cook stressed that Apple will not be producing low-end phones, and that Apple has no desire to be the market leader in terms of units sold. Instead, Cook emphasized that Apple will continue to focus on building the "world's best phone."

This makes perfect sense in light of the fact that the iPhone 3G hasn't even been out yet for a year, and that the iTunes App Store continues to grow at an astounding rate. It makes more sense for Apple to continue pushing the feature-rich iPhone 3G instead of trying to introduce and market a new iPhone model with comparatively limited functionality and lower margins.

As a final nail in the coffin, Cook, in response to a question about iPhone competitors, put to rest any ideas that a smaller form factor iPhone is something Apple would even consider:
