    Default Production Model Hands-On
    Recent reports show that the production model iPhone will already be set up for AOL/GMAIL/HOTMAIL, "etc" and will of course be able to use POP3. No mention of IMAP, whether just because he didn't think to put it or it didn't have it is not known.

    It also has "...very fast response to input and very good resolution on the LCD. it is very crisp and vivid..." and DOES have a sim slot, contrary to previous rumors.

    Gizmodo.

    That screen is going to be super crisp considering it will be displaying in 180ppi (most PC LCD's display at about 72ppi - pixels per inch). Wallpapers and screensavers will look like we've never seen them before as will internet and any other media dislpayed on the screen.

    All mobile phones have sim cards! They wont work as phones without them, and, even though we know there WILL be a sim slot now, if there wasent, the sim would be built in, as i doubt Apple would develop a alternative to the sim card for no reason.

    not true. some phones, like the ones on verizon and sprint networks and in japan and korea. (japan i think, but korea i know) use the analog network of CDMA or WCDMA which doesnt use sim cards at all. they register by the imei number i think.

    Not good for using other networks then... well even if the iPhone used that system, they would have to change it for the UK release 'coz there is no support for that system, and how are we meant to unlock it like that?

    CDMA and WCDMA are digitol not analog

    you see the new high speed for cingular/att "3g?" 3g is WCDMA. Unfortunately we will not be fortunate enough to get 3g (WCDMA) in the first release of the iphone, second edition should have it included though so you can experience real broadband speeds over the network instead of the less impressive edge speeds

    it has a sim card, it is a regualr gsm phone and will work world wide (if unlocked minus) in theory but supposedly cingulat/att has upgraded their gsm network for the iphone. some think other providers would have to do the same to fully support the iphone. I personally think if it can be unlocked it would make calls fine on other networks . .. . .. . .. data might be a problem though

    Ea... not bothered about data with the 802.11g! (its free using Wifi as well).

    Also, there a 'the iPhone has 3G' rumor making the rounds at the moment.
