7 reasons why Paris Hilton won't buy the Iphone

by siestaboy / June 1, 2007 6:27 AM PDT

1. Touch screen texting- that seems pretty inaccurate, considering there's no stylus and a touch-screen wouldn't have the same feel as a real keypad, so texting based on feel would be hard to do. I think Paris Hilton would like a phone that keep up with her mad texting! Plus, she doesn't need any more distractions with her cellphone while she's driving!

2. No Itunes mobile?!- If she wanted to download music/video/podcasts on-the-go then she wouldn't be able to.

3. No 3G networks, just EDGE- Why?! With all of the high-speed applications out there including: internet, email, music/video downloading/streaming (the Iphone doesn't have that), the upcoming MobileTV(the Iphone doesn't have that), and many business apps (the Iphone doesn't have that); it should have 3G! Without 3G I don't think it would have very much expanding room for new apps, so why would celebs want it until it does??!!

4. It's not revolutionary- Without direct downloading from Itunes, which several Motorola (Slvr) phones had before it, it's not revolutionary in that respect. Without 3G networks behind it to make room for more apps, the Iphone will crash and burn before the phones that do. Paris Hilton wants a phone that's as cool as she is!

5. Touch-screens are fragile- I hope Apple did some serious work on their new Iphone screen! Knowing Apple, they probably made the screen just as fragile as the Ipod screens, so then they would break/scratch/smudge without buying a case! Paris Hilton wouldn't find that very fashionable!

6. 8GB of space seems pretty limited- Toshiba just recently released a new 16GB flash memory card. And many people have multimedia libraries beyond 8GB. Paris probably has a couple homemade videos that she would need room for!

7. Hey, Paris! I hope the battery doesn't die on you!- 5 hrs of talk time doesn't seem like a lot, and many of the apps would suck the battery dry. It wouldn't be very funny if Paris were watching her home videos or texting and her battery goes dead! I bet after a year her battery would give out and her expensive Iphone will be a pretty paperweight!

Poor Paris!

No, he is sick and tired of ifanboys who don't even know what they're looking at. The world is oversaturated with them, enough to make someone go crazy.

I apologize for the name calling...

I called ServedUp an idiot because his opion was biased and unfounded. He insulted Zune users and called the Zune "unoriginal." His biased, mouthrunning opinion isn't what I call acceptale. People shouldn't be allowed to attack a product without any way to back it up. That's why I called him out. I admit my language on that post was overdone so I apologize for that.

Most of what I wrote about is based off of facts from CNET Iphone reviews, speculation from user opions; common complaints about the Iphone's/Ipod's flaws and speculation. Like in #s 5 & 7, I talked about potential battery problems and potential screen problems. Those were based on resonable speculation from the Ipod's flaws. The other things about the lack of 3G and lack of Itunes Mobile were both facts from the CNET review and major flaws. I'm pretty skeptical about the touch-screen texting. It doesn't seem very accurate for people with large thumbs and the screen could get smudged or scratched. It's difficult to say how durable the screen would be. I just hope it doesn't have the same problems as the Ipod screens!
