Comments on: Opening the Apple iPhone http://designnotes.info/?p=863 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.6 By: oo http://designnotes.info/?p=863&cpage=1#comment-3096 Wed, 10 Jan 2007 15:33:06 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=863#comment-3096 It supports wi-fi (from Tech Specs):

“Wireless data: Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) + EDGE + Bluetooth 2.0”

So when you’re in a wi-fi enabled area, you’ll use that for internet and email, and use GSM and EDGE for phone calls. (I wonder what the EDGE internet/email performance hit will be when out of wi-fi range.)

I assume someone will create a Skype widget for this, or some kind of Safari site you can browse to to make a Skype call through.

My justification is to use it when travelling outside of the US so I can check email and make calls using Skype. It is really well made and has good battery life, and the screen is AWESOME.

I’d say it very much depends what you need. If you have pleenty of wifi access and you need to call a lot, this may be a good option. Keep in mind you need to use a stylus (gasp!). The iphone is just so groundbreaking in every way that it is hard to not succumb to Steve’s pitch… June seems a loooong way off though.

Have you had your Nokia 770 for a while now and are just looking for something new? I have a bit of time (like everyone else) before I have to jump the gun either way.

Btw it is 4.25″ vs iPhone’s 3.5. Having said that, I will get rid this in ONE second for an iPhone:)

I never quite got the benefit of the widgets on OSX since the real tools were just as easy to access. However this format really makes the widgets into actual applications. I think this is really important to note because the widget is perfectly suited to the smaller format and simplified controls.
