Blogosphere comments on Apple iPhone in India

Here are interesting comments that are appearing variously in the blogosphere about the iPhone 3G. If Apple or the carriers have some clarifications on any of these points, I will be glad to publish them.

  • No video calling
  • No AD2P on the Bluetooth
  • Can’t share ANY (mp3, images,videos….) files via bluetooth
  • Can’t use as a wireless modem, (you pay data charges to activate internet on your phone, but cannot connect it to your PC and browse when you are at home)
  • No copy and paste, (cannot copy a part of a…. say…. email & send it….have to type it out yourself)
    No 3.2 or 5 megapixel camera, (has a 2MP camera)
  • No video recording with camera
  • No front camera
  • No flash
  • No JAVA support
  • No 3G network yet in India…so why pay for expensive 3G phone if you can’t use its 3G services… for India, iPhone 2.0 is no better than its first version.
  • No removable battery. (You cannot change battery. Have to send it to apple outlet..can you live without your phone for 2-3 days?)
  • Cannot send MMS
  • Can’t use as external storage device
  • No FM radio
  • Can’t use your mp3 files as ringtones
  • Cannot insert any other SIM car

That’s a long list of “Nos.” I would hate to pay 800 dollars for a phone that has such a long negative list.
