Apple iPhone advantages VS BlackBerry Curve ( 8300 ):
iPhone is a not just a phone it is widescreen iPod with touch controls that lets you enjoy all your content including music, audiobooks, videos, TV shows, and movies on a beautiful 3.5-inch widescreen display (BlackBerry Curve only has a 2.5 inch screen). The BlackBerry curve does have a media player, however with all the iPod features and 4 GB / 8 GB space, it makes the iPhone the best music phone.
Visual Voicemail: The iPhone lets you select and listen to voicemail messages in whatever order you want — just like email using a revolutionary new feature called the visual voicemail.
Advanced Safari browser: iPhone lets you see any web page the way it was designed to be seen, then easily zoom in by simply tapping on the multi-touch display with your finger which will change mobile browsing for the good.
Wi-Fi: iPhone is also Wi-Fi enabled and supports Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) which gives you an option to switch to faster Wi-FI networks instead of using EDGE which aren’t that slow but also aren’t very fast.
User Interface: iPhone features the most revolutionary user interface since the mouse. It’s an entirely new interface based on a large multi-touch display and innovative new software that lets you control everything using only your fingers.
QWERTY soft keyboard: iPhone’s full QWERTY soft keyboard lets you easily send and receive SMS messages in multiple sessions. And the keyboard is predictive, so it prevents and corrects mistakes, making it easier and more efficient to use however only time will tell if it is better than the full Qwerty keyboard thats available on Palm Treo 755p.
Camera: iPhone is expected to have a 2 megapixel camera, and from initial reports it seems like the camera on the iPhone will be quite superior to the low quality camera available on the Palm Treo.
