Agreed, from what I've seen so far of Windows Phone 7 Series, I'm not impressed.How about shooting 6.5 in the foot, then taking 6 months or so to bring an update, that's already late?
Leaving Apple to usher in OS 4.0, and 4G iPhone, and Android to go through pastry related OS like a sweet toothed kid in a Krispy Kreme.
WHERE are the apps? Oh right, the ones for 6.5 don't work? So they're starting from 0?
Exactly. Just as there are many automobile models, there will always be multiple smartphone models.With Apple's success, they have yet to kill any other smartphone maker on the market. RIM is stronger than ever, Google phones are flying off the shelves and MS/Palm got much needed makeovers.
There's plenty of market for all the players, and the consumer wins due to competitive pricing and more choice.
the Iphone came out before the Iphone! and the rest of the stuff has been said many times. back to your android forum.Iphone ripoff with Android feel. Why does all these platforms impose social networking. Even the experiment with facebook push was already annoying. Why do I care what Joe said to John in response to some other stupid comment. When I feel like to read that, I just log in to Facebook App and actually read that on. Plus running all these services in the backgrond paired with high res screen - very short battery life. Integration with Zune marketplace is not so bad. It would be nice if I can listen to some tune on ipod and then expand to find more on this artist on Itunes.
And here I am, thinking that "iPod killer", "iPhone killer" etc. are terms only used by Microsoft sycophants. And of course by people in the know who use it to mark stillborn wannabe competitorsThe only people who use the term "iPhone killer" are Apple fanboys threatened by anything without the Apple logo and bloggers using the term to draw hits from Apple fanboys who are threatened by anything without the Apple logo.
Actually, last time I checked, the WinMo forums couldn't really care less about the iPhone and quite a few WinMo phones can be set up to dual boot WinMo or Android (such as both my Fuze and Tilt). I certainly plan on buying a WinMo 7 phone when they become available. As far as I can see, the only people that care all about the iPhone are here and Apple and I doubt even Apple is as paranoid as some people here.And here I am, thinking that "iPod killer", "iPhone killer" etc. are terms only used by Microsoft sycophants.

Yes, Microsoft will follow up its iPod killer, the "Zune", with an iPhone killer.
I don't think apple needs to one up anybody. I mean the 3gs came out with only a 3 mp camera, some phones alraedy had 5mp. The iPhone never has the better specs amongst phones, yet sold a lot. Apple knows it's sheepskin will still buy so is not worried. Apple is the only company that holds back features for future editions. Well i will be dumping my 3gs for the nexus one soon, Mai ly because of Att expensive plans.i think that microsoft, or any other company for that matter that makes a "better" phone than apple is only going to help the iphone. i say that because apple sees what those companies are doing, and knows they have to one-up them.
i see your point, but when it comes to the UI, i think they will have to. granted, i don't think it will come until the next gen iphone.I don't think apple needs to one up anybody.

And the sellers at the shops would have to put the phone on display right in the middle, pride of place too eh?I'm so tired of the "killer suffix". If I was to build a phone/media device tomorrow, I'd call it the Baby. No one would dare call their device the Baby Killer.
Who cares? None of these other phones are trying to take iPhone users. iPhone users represent just a tiny portion of mobile phone users overall. There is a huge uncapped audience of cell phone users who aren't using smartphones. All of these companies are going after this audience. That is why talk of a "iPhone killer" is nonsense. These companies don't need to beat the iPhone. They need to tap into this audience.Nothing that will come out from any manufacturer will make the majority of iPhone users switch.
