iPhone: legal rights and wrongs

10 things Apple got wrong
1. We would like our America online Im – and Yahoo and MSN IM clients, too. How about MMS support for delivering picture mail?
2. No voice recording – and most importantly, no voice dialing support. How’s it going designed to make use of an iPhone having a hands-free vehicle package?
3. It’s probably the most locked-lower phone we’ve seen. Although explore swap the AT&T Sim for just one from another network, you cannot even swap it foranother AT&T Sim.
4. AT&Its building out its special broadband network, but iPhone users are tied to older EDGE technology – or battery-consuming Wi-Fi.
5. You realize individuals great earphones you already own? They won’t fit the iPhones headset jack, so that your first iPhone accessory is a bulky, ugly $10 adapter.

7. It’s great the iPhone can reorient pages in Safari, CoverFlow, and also the picture album, why not extend that capacity with other apps for example e-mail? Some messages may need a widescreen display. As well as if this does reorient, it doesn’t always follow-through with all of features: CoverFlow loses accessibility volume slider, for instance.
8. No support for custom ringtones, surprising inside a music mobile phone handset.
9. The camera’s rudimentary, without any audio/video or perhaps zoom capacity.
10. To to-do list support, a fundamental in many calendar applications.
