no way. no one at all will buy the apple iPhone. Steve will decide not to let us have them as punishment for letting m$ get more marketshare. then, all will repent, and sweaty steve balmer will rule, butt the good will live on in cupertino.

Serves the other manufacturers right anyway. I've had Motorolas and Samsungs and Nokias and they're all kind of slipshod in terms of durability and quality.

It seems as though Jeffries and company are stating the obvious. They're really courageous by saying "may lose" instead of "will probably lose" because they're not really saying anything.

Considering how difficult a lot of devices are to use, I think that anyone who has any smartphone but a Blackberry would switch today. If the price were half, I believe that anyone with a RAZR or KRZR would switch immediately.

The only groups I don't see switching soon are getting 3g data access or those who have Blackberry devices.

Motorola really needs to step up and provide better phones and easier ways to use them.

Motorola "may" lose share to the iPhone, but, frankly, I'd be surprised if such a market-share loss is significant this year or even in 2008. The high price of the iPhone and Cingular's exclusivity are going to limit the impact on Motorola and the other handset producers. Of course, if Steve J. comes out with cheaper iPhones, CDMA iPhones, etc., then who knows?

i doubt they will lose much. It will be a while before any of these gys lose market share
