Steve Jobs and the iPhone

Steve Jobs and iPhone

Has Steve Jobs been doing a bit of sandbagging when it comes to the iPhone? As it appears that there may be more to the long awaited iPhone than we all expected, or rather what we have been lead to believe.

Could it be something to do with the fact that the iPhone is going to have a huge memory possibly up to 8 GB, if this were true does this mean that the iPhone and iPod have been combined and that if they mentioned this at the annoucement, sales of the iPod would probably be zero while people waited?

Unlike the iPod the iPhone will have a battery that can be replaced if and when necessary, one thing that many iPod users really dislike, another much improved feature and clearly the folks at Apple have been reading all those emails.

The iPhone will have a variation of the iWork and iLife suites which will provide word processing, slideshow and spreadsheet features, as for music and content the iPhone will probably allow you to stream content from iTunes via a wireless network, this is a space saving feature as there would be no need to save the data.

iTunes will feature heavily in the development of this phone, as you would expect the iPhone will allow the user to buy music over an internet connection or wireless network depending on what service you will be using, and the user can always transfer these purchases to a computer.

As we already know the iPhone is going to cost up to $600, which is very high no matter what the features are, however experience tells us that nobody really buys anything when it first comes out, it is always the way, because after a while the prices begin to fall dramatically and then we begin to see special deals.

But until we actually get to see or hear the full details of the iPhone we can still only keep guessing.

Steve plays the analysts and media like a fine instrument. He discloses only enough info to get you all worked up, then you give him tons and tons of free press by speculating about the possibilities. Makes you think you are the brains behind the thing cause you could figure it out.

If you were a puppet, what would your name be?

I’m long AAPL, but how do I short the analyst and media?

You dont sound like you know much about the iPhone. (Like most of us I guess) But has it been established that the battery WILL be removeable? I hadnt read that. If its been said could you show me where?? And as far as the iPhone not going to sell well at first. Are you kidding me? Wow, I must have a totalaly different take on things because I think the rush to buy these units is going to be enormous and monumental. I dont think any of us will see this kind of product lust in any of our lifetimes.

Anyways, not trying to be a prick just wondering could you quote the suorce of the removeable battery part? And the iLife and spread sheet availability for this phone. I have followed this phones development like a cultist and havent seen any of this. Could you show me where you saw or have seen this?

Ya and “guessing” is all that you have done in the entire article, you are merely speculating and in the worst way. First off, where are your sources? The Apple iphone DOES NOT have a removable battery nor is it likely. It also does not have itunes on the device, nor can it stream or download music as of 6.2.07 to the device from the internet or 2.5 g or what ever. You are also wrong about nobody buying products such as these! there are millions that want a piece of the iphone and can’t wait to switch service providers, cancel contracts, throw away old phones…you name it and people are ready to do it in order to obtain the iphone. You are grossly mistaken about your specs and your analysis of the price point of the iphone. Do a little research before posting this garbage.

“if this were true does this mean that the iPhone and iPod have been combined”

are you joking? did you even see the announcement? the iphone IS an ipod, this is well established. are you just rambling for hits? 8 GB is also an established fact everyone has known since January. this must be a joke.

>> Could it be something to do with the fact that the iPhone is going to have a huge memory possibly up to 8 GB?

Yeah, that was already announced. 4GB and 8GB

>> iTunes will feature heavily in the development of this phone.

Duh?

>> $600, which is very high no matter what the features are.

No more than all the other devices that will do everything this “one” device will do.

>> But until we actually get to see or hear the full details of the iPhone we can still only keep guessing.

I’m not even going to comment.
