Simple Question, many answers I'm sure...

DLM


From my layman eyes, iPhone video is better, i.e., smoother. The specs confirm my observation.

iPhone: 640x480 at 30 fps with max 1.5Mbps
TH55: 320x240 at 30 fps

You have to realize though TH55 is 4.5 years old. However, back then it came with dedicated graphic accelerator chip besides the HHE (Handheld Engine) CPU.

I do like the bigger screen (3.9") of TH55 than the smaller (3.5") iPhone screen. Bigger screen is better for my eyes. On the other side, the smaller screen but with higher pixels help to make the view sharper and smoother.

I'm just quoting the iPhone spec, http://www.apple.com/iphone/specs.html
"Video formats supported: H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second"

I'm twisting nothing, just mention the facts and my observation on both my TH55 and iPhone. If you feel your LifeDrive is superior over the iPhone, good for you. This thread is not a competition, as the title said "Next generation of TH55 = iPhone3G", simply expressing my impression of how similar iPhone3G to TH55.

I'm very concerned about the iPhone as a future phone for me because of the limitation to ATT as a carrier and Apple's propensity to nickle and dime us with all the add-ons...

Tony


Yes, same, half VGA (480x320). iPhone screen (3.5" measured diagonally) looks sharper than that of TH55 larger screen (3.9") because the iPhone pixels are more compacted in smaller screen. You may have seen how much sharper the half VGA screen of UX50.

I don't see much price disparity between at&t and others. What kind of deal do you find out there from its competitor?

Yea. That is cool. Here is my latest screenshot of the freewares and shortcuts. I haven't bought any shareware, yet. There are pretty cool free games too in my 3rd page of desktop screen.

Actually the screenshot is already out of date. Jott is already replaced with VoiceNotes for recording notes on the fly. This is good when you are in a hurry like recording where you park in the airport parking lot before dashing to the gate.

The version 2.0 makes it easy to add special icon. Checkout my 1src icon.

That's one of the major reasons why I jailbreaked (jailbroke?) my 4GB iPhone... it's for eReader!

I can now access BOTH of my ereader.com and fictionwise.com accounts. Text rendering is awesome, of course.

eReader is free and comes with Tarzan of the Apes and The Last of the Mohicans.

There's currently no way to add your own ebooks but access to my "old" ebooks is more than enough!

DanT and the others... there is a built-in (undocumented) screenshot feature. Just hold down the menu button then press the power button.

Like so:

There are free ebook reader apps in the App Store take a look - allows you to use any text file as a source.


@Joel
That's not undocumented that's a new feature in v2. How else would we ever get data into our Evernote accounts?

Talking The iPhone 3g is the Heir apparent

It's been a long time since I've been to 1src.com. I remember when I had my old NX clamshell and how we used to wish Sony would give it cell phone functionality. I even recall a picture someone rendered of the Clie concept cell phone. This forum was GREAT! Many innovations were spawned right here in these threads. I thought the TH55 was the best piece of machinery ever. And at the time it was. And for 5 years I held on to it and tricked it out to the nth degree. But I was carrying my ipod, my cell, and my TH55. I held out for the iPhone 3g. When I weigh the shear coolness vs it's small shortcomings, AND the fact that I don't have to lug around a Batman utility belt for three devices, the iPhone is the NATURAL progression from the TH55. I love the Iphone 3g! My TH55 is still extremely cool but Sony let us down. The Treo is OK but is just too corny. The beauty of this forum is that more innovations are going to spring from these discussions. It's good to be back!

Thanks for the tip on screen capture. That is slick.

I turned on the iPhone after taking a screenshot later and forgot that I was still in Photos. It looks just like the original home screen. Then I was wondering why the screen was locked up. Double tapping an icon just makes the icon bigger. LOL.

Also Labyrinth LE is a cool game that is unique for iPhone. I haven't seen it in Palm.

DanT, I noticed that you have OmniFocus. How do you Like it? I also see that you have Cydia. Since I held out until the 3g came out I haven't been involved in unlocking and jailbreaking the iphone. Would you mind sharing some tips and tricks? And do you all think that iPhone needs a thread of its own? Also, are there websites that you would recommend where I can learn more about jailbreaking and hacking the iphone. I know I can Google it but I like to be introduced to new friends, if you know what I mean.
