Pricing has yet to be confirmed

^ It means a new generation of smart phones are coming in from major manufacturers. That will have lots of features including features introduced with iPhone.

^ This could also mean that the iPhone 3 or whatever it will be named will come with a slew of new features

I loved Iphone when I first used it..

I would also love to use it again but NO MONEY:/p

I don’t know about iPhone 3 but iPhone 12 might have 3D holographic projection in it :D

75000rs? i'll pass

iPhone is still going to be the dominant in the market for some time to come, at least. Marketing concept: "market leader" :)

iPhone has innovative features. It's not that touch-screen was first in iPhone. But utilizing multi-touch with proper software to give out features that's one of reason behind "new" features in iPhone.

Plus, successful marketing campaign. :)

yet to be released N97 will beat all I think so, but ofcourse the place what iPhone has made in the market would not be easy to break for others. iPhone has made its name in elite class. what I think. but I always prefer Symbian

Looks really nice. Any idea for expected price in Pakistan?

These days, there has been many article on BBC, CNN, Times that future is about smart-phone. Because in this trouble finical times, people are upgrading their phones but only to smart-phone.

no idea about what will be the price in pakistan.

but when Nokia 5800 was announced on October 2, 2008. the suggested retail price of it was €279.

source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_5800

and The Nokia N97 is expected to ship in Europe during the first half of 2009, with an estimated price of 550 euros ($695)

http://news.cnet.com/nokias-mystery-device-the-nokia-n97/

it is the nice strategy to break the iPhone market and release two handsets competing it one after another in a short period.

I think it would be the same here in Pakistan. in PKR, 5800 will be the lower costed handset than the iPhone to give the customer choices in cheap way and N97 might be right above in price to the iPhone.

Dear, iPod and iPhone are not made by Apple. XBox 360 is not made by Microsoft. PS3 is not made by Sony. And so on and so on. That’s call out-sourcing to ODM (Original Design Manufacturer).
