Today's gPhone announcement has me very excited about the prospect of competition in the form of an open-platform hardware and software platform that promises to be as robust (if not more) than AAPL's iPhone vision. With hardware not due until 2H08 apple has a good 18 month headstart. This reminds me of Apple in the consumer computer market 20 years back, great product, early to market, but fumbled the plays with some very small (at the time) but critical missteps in the beginning (licensing, routes to market, etc). Hopefully Apple competes more wisely this time around! Love my iPhone, hate the lack of MMS, video, a real mail app, cut paste, etc. Love the idea of a healthy competition even more!
