    I will admit, I had a lot of expectations for the new iphone 3G, so in reality i didn't expect Apple to meet all of them. But yesterday when the new iphone was released, I was terribly disappointed in the lack of new features. Besides 3G internet, GPS, and a plastic back, nothing else has really changed besides the price! Yes, a cheaper priced iphone is definitely nice, but i feel as if Apple had to leave out many, many features that just needs to be included in the worlds best phone that were left out for what I think was to reduce cost and "make it affordable for everyone." Affordability is nice, but Apple has always been known for top notch products with the highest quality possible which indeed means that they are usually more expensive that other brands. For this I have always respected Apple, because I always knew I was getting the best quality product possible at the time even if i did have to pay more for it. With the release of the new iphone 3G, I feel Apple has stepped away from its tradition and instead focussed on quantity rather than quality which leaves me utterly disappointed. Think of the many things left out of the new iphone that many people thought would definitely be included in the new model. For example, they didn't update the camera in anyway! No flash or zoom or autofocus! And most frustrating of all they didn't add the essential need of the camera to record videos which is a big reason I did not get the original iphone, because i figured the new iphone would surely record videos! There is also no front mounted camera for video conferencing which is really upsetting and something that iphone competitors already have. Screen resolution also remains unchanged at 480 x 320 when many rivals have adopted VGA. The new iphone is fatter 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3mm verses the original's 115 x 61 x 11.6mm. There is still no announcement of flash being usable in the web browser. And another example of Apple cutting back is that it no longer comes with a dock for charging. Overall the lack of new features in the iphone 3G is more than disappointing and I'm sure that many people would be willing spend a little extra dough in order to receive a lot of those missing features. Apple has reminded me of something a PC would do. Less quality, but cheaper price so more people will buy. If everyone has an iphone it will tremendously lower the "cool factor" of having one. In conclusion, I feel that Apple has let many of its loyal customers down and I have lost a great deal of respect for the company. What do yall think?

    what you don't understand is that Apple is including more features for about $200 dollars less than, so it may lacking some features but it still is a much more powerful tool for less than the original iPhone.

    okay sounds like I offended those who can't afford a more expensive iphone. I would of much rather spent more money for a phone that had a video camera or many of the other missing features. I'm not saying that the iphone is a bad phone. It's still by far the world's best phone and is the sexiest looking phone too. And ill be in line to get one July 11th I just think apple left out too much in order to cut the price

    the iPhone wasnt designed for camera use, the camera is only a occasional thing, the iphone was built more PDA like than camera like

    I don't buy all kinds of things I don't like and I don't even complain about it.
