and if you have a android tablet, you will see 1080p does look better than 720p vidoe on youtube even with the tablet 1280 x 800 display, but those tegra 2 gpu just doesn't play it smoothly.

so even if it is only on a 720p display the 1080p source will give you better image quality.

bigger screen vs smaller screen.......

Why are people called sheep when they switch for Apple. But when people switch for an EVO or something equivalent they are regular people? :bleh:

That's like shooting a mosquito with a cannon. Don't you have a laptop that can easily run that?

Making a phone with the sole purpose of driving a HDTV is just ridiculously bad marketing but it does show off the sheer amount of firepower we have come to.

The stupid thing is how little people understand how good these things are already.

lol yea i have a net book and a notebook.

but the thing is the netbook can't even play youtbe 720p video :lol:

of course the notebook will do any kind of things, but using the phone to do the work is easy and quick too.

Im more likely to find links supporting my side than you would. :lol:

:bleh:

Anyway, we'll see if Apple is going to stay current. I hope the bigger screen and less thickness rumors are true. 4g wouldnt hurt either.

For me to get this phone they need to hit these points:
  • Bigger screen, same physical size or only a little bit bigger.
  • Faster Processor, at least something comparable to iPad 2
  • 4g
  • Preferably a little thinner(pushing it though..)

It's a ****ing consumer device, not a rock-star. Relax, you'll be happy enough after the "event" :bleh:

When the hell are these things going to be released?

wc326 Oct 4, 2011 09:38 AM

i wonder , what resolution display will be on the iphone 5.

Then don't make the claim if you're not willing to back it up. If hordes of people switched for Android devices it'd have been all over the news, that kind of crap gets page hits. We do know that hordes of people switched for iPhone.

Razeus Oct 4, 2011 10:46 AM

I think Android people are more interested in Apple events than Apple people are. Funny.

Doubt that. You're the one who starts the thread announcing the event and then the official thread every single time.

People are not switching from iPhone. At least not in a trend fashion. More people are switching to iPhone. Their market share is shrinking despite that though because (as of right now they still only provide to 2 carriers, one company makes them, and their is only two modals at a time). Android has more than 4 carriers, with way more than one company, with various wide range of devices meeting every price point from free to 399. The market share they are grabbing is not from Apple though. It's from MS, Rim, Palm, and new entries. Apple grabs more from Android than Android does from them. So it's pretty impressive I think for Apple to have such a commending marketshare for such circumstances.

And further more, they are making a lot more money than anyone else in this market.

Can't wait for them to compare iOS as a whole to Android phones :lol:

And you're the first one to chime in. I'm sure you'll post your "thoughts" starting in about an hour...

Chuck Oct 4, 2011 12:00 PM

..and now there's the rumor there wouldn't be an iPhone 5..

http://www.macrumors.com/2011/10/04/...-gps-features/

Hope this isn't true. No way I'm going to settle with the current 3.5" screen.

Whether it's called 4S or iPhone 5, does it matter? Still a new device with new hardware.

If all we get is an A5 CPU and an 8MP camera, I'm going to be pissed.
