New iPhone 4G: Over hyped? – Ten reasons not to buy

By Posted 4 Jun 2010, 07:31

Are you still hanging on the fence over the decision to pick up the upcoming iPhone 4G handset from Apple? An interesting article we have found has picked out 10 reasons why you shouldn’t pick up Apple’s latest toy.

The article comes to us courtesy of The Telegraph, who have provided a list of 10 detailed reasons on why the iPhone 4G isn’t as good as all the hype suggests.

The first reason they pinpoint is price. They believe that customers will get much more value for money by opting for the latest Blackberry or Android handset. They have also called the iPhone 4G ”anti-technology”, adding that the design lacks cutting edge.

Another reason they highlight and arguably the biggest flaw of the iPhone, is that it lacks Adobe Flash support. However, the article also claims that the iPhone 4G won’t contain multitasking, which we all know is a blatent lie.

Make of this article as you will, but let us know if you think the iPhone 4G has been over hyped or not. Either way, the real picture will be painted at WWDC on Monday.

    Umm…OS4 doesn’t have multi-tasking. It has multi-tasking-but-not-really-multi-tasking. Quick Task Switching is probably a better term to use, but it isn’t what we all call “multi-tasking” like in WinMO, Android, Windows, Linux or OSX. I don’t get to have multiple applications open at one time.

    this "article" is a rehash of a story. Instead of trying to masquerade as a news article, just link to the story.

    Anyone still on the Apple band wagon is like discovering U2 in 2005 – seriously get with the times people. Apple absolutely sucks and its prime business model is to sell you crap hardware, lock you out of the web and force you into their stores – anyone – ANYONE who is still falling for this garbage can take heart in knowing full well who they are and what the represent – getting to know yourself is hard – not for Apple Die Hards – you – you are absolute tossers.

    Apple makes products that bring joy and pride in people. they make technology simple for the baby boomers. the rest of the nation copies and follows. they are the trendsetters and they do it well. people shouldn't think of apple as a god or super company, they should think of apple as a company that raises up standards so companies must create phones like the droid and etc.

    Earlier only Apple used to make great products. They essentially kicked manufacturers like Nokia who gave what they wanted rather than customers. However, after so much innovation it seems like Apple is treading the same path as Nokia. Trying to limit things to customer and at the same time charge high price. People use their ego and pride to continue to vouch for apple when you know that other companies have better products at lower prices. A glaring example is that iphone 3G!!! does not have a front camera. how is is possible to make video calls? If they are innovators they should have had the front camera.
