    Question 18 September - iPhone coming to Europe

    As you might have heard in 4 days Apple is making a big announcement. They are actually throwing a party in their Apple Store in London (UK) to present some "new toy". Everyone think this is going to be the European version of the iPhone (take a look at the ad they made: seems pretty obvious... http://www.macformat.co.uk/page/macf..._no_longer_the).

    Now my question is: today every Italian website is hinting at a possible 3G version of the iPhone, which I believe is not going to happen (not before June 2008 at least). What do you think? Is it really going to be an improved UMTS version?

    The iPhone is doomed to fail in Europe if it launches the iPhone crippled with only an EDGE radio. Nokia will tear Apple to shreds.

    Not sure about that. I live in the North of Italy where we get a 100% UMTS coverage everywhere we go. Before the iPhone I had (still do but not using it right now) a Nokia N95 (UMTS/EDGE/HSDPA). Starting from the assumption that nobody really care about doing video-calls, the only reason you care for UMTS is when surfing the web. Well, the other day we were comparing the N95 and the iPhone and to my great surprise I was browsing pages faster on the iPhone!! This is obviously due to the fact that Safari and the iPhone CPU work better than N95. So at the end of the day the big difference would be noticed only when using the telephones as Modem for your laptops.

    my guess too, i mean itīs a nice toy, i love it. but i think it just cannot compete.
    3G beeing one of a few other things.

    but i donīt really think that europe is getting a 3g phone.
    i mean, everybody was pissed when the iphone got a price cut of 200$, what would happen if a new version with 3g comes out now .

    also, didnīt apple just sign a contract for 3g chips just a week or so ago, i wouldnīt think that they can get production going for 3g iphones that fast.

    but, we will see....

    I had the same with my sonyericsson M600i We compared surfing with the iphone and the SE. And the iPhone was faster even it does not support UMTS wich the SE does.

    True. But this would explain the price cut. A newer, improved version.

    Well in sweden we have a little problem since telia is not interested in iPhone and most other like telenor (aka vodafone) has almost mainly using 3G-band in sweden and most others as well is just using 3G. And one more problem in sweden is that they cant sell the phone locked to one provider since swedish laws forbid that since you are forced into a aggrement. But the iPhone wont be here until early 2008 is my guess. If we get it at all
