iphone disadvantages email

There is an email on the iphone, which has lately been circulating after the launch of iphone in India. I'd like to publish this email on my blog and although I have not verified the claims it makes, the points sound very genuine. I have no intentions of doing a negative publicity and I too plan to buy it in future once the price of the phone i.e 31,000 (approx) comes down to its actual worth (in RS).

Highlights of the email

No video calling.

No AD2P on the Bluetooth.

Can't share any (mp3, images,videos....) files via bluetooth.

Can't use as a wireless modem, (you pay ridiculous data charges to activate internet on your phone, but cannot connect it to your PC and browse when you are at home).

No copy and paste,(cannot copy a part of a..... say.... email & send it....have to type it out yourself).

No 3..2 or 5 megapixel camera,(the 2MP camera it carries is worst camera i've ever seen..... photos look like they have come out of a VGA camera).

No video recording with camera.

No front camera.

No flash.

No JAVA support.

No physical keyboard (BELIEVE me! this alone is a dealbreaker...touch keyboard as good as it looks...once you use it then only you come to know about the importance of having a hard keypad).

No 3G network yet in India..so why pay for expensive 3G phone if you cant use its 3G services ... so, for India, iPhone 2.0 is no better than its first version.

No removable battery. (You cannot change battery. Have to send it to apple outlet.. Come on now!!!!...This is not an iPod. Its a bloody phone. You cannot live without phone for 2-3 days).

No haptic feedback and.

Cannot send MMS.

Can't use as external storage device (16 GB of utter waste..next time you go to your friend's house & find some interesting songs, movies, etc...sorry you cannot connect your '16 GB' phone and share it!!!! Apple apparently has a solution.. " BUY MUSIC & MOVIES FROM iTUNES STORE "..... Give me a break will you APPLE!!!)

No FM radio,

Can't use your mp3 files as ringtones,(This is heights man!!!)

Cannot insert any other SIM card….

Completely tied to iTunes... Connect to your friend's iTunes & you risk erasing everything on your phone.
