    The only thing that will unseat the iPhone is AT&T. They will either limit data on the iphone to the point it will choke the users. And or higher prices, that will kill growth. :mad:

    "Unseat?" :D

    The iPhone doesn't have any significant market share oustide the US... it's just a featureless shiny toy for people who can't use real smartphones... :)

    Smartphones are really cool and all, but there is no way in hell I'm paying $60-$100/month for data/voice plans. I have a 4-year old Motorolla clamshell with T-Mobile rechargeable minutes that has served me JUST fine. Sure I can't take notes on it, but missing a few features is hardly worth the $2000/2 year typical contract. Who can afford SP TCO except rich execs and their kids?

    Nonsense, we have all the features you U.S. guys get, pay much less for it, and great 3G networks to ride on.
