Having used an iPaq for years, I cannot see how anyone who used "what we had before iPhone" and "what we had after iPhone" could possible dispute this.
Actually the LG Prada "innovated" the touchscreen before Apple did. No stylus.

Saying this was not an innovation in the mobile space defies logic...you may as well argue that Netscape was not innovative because, after all, we already had Gopher.
"Real" internet to mobile? At the time Blackberry and Windows phones could do everything on the internet that iPhone could. Including viewing full webpages and not just text. These days Android is leaps and bounds ahead of the iPhone's internet capabilities.

That's why I say that "running apps on a phone" was not the innovation, it was the App Store itself that was the innovation.
That's because most Blackberry users at the time didn't care about having apps that could do an animation of you pouring a beer.

I've dropped my iPhone 4 many times onto stone tile floors, concrete, steel tables, etc.
No case, no screen protector, no scratches, or cracks here.

I love how much hate there is for the iPhone on the internet, the hate is nearly hardly exists outside of your basements.

That's really up for debate. Android was in development before the iPhone, not after it. I don't doubt that the iPhones success changed Googles approach at developing android but and what sort of features it would implement. It's just that the development of smart phones into more consumer friendly devices was already being thought of, up until the iPhone however it had not happened on such a scale.

In other words, Apple didn't invent the smart phone with a touchscreen (see: LG Prada) but it both changed and took over the game.

I work in a Sprint store and we've had at least 3 or 4 iPhones returned for Galaxy SII's just today. Most common complaint is the size is just not comfortable for big hands. These are mostly internet customers that never touched an iPhone and just ordered one because it was an iPhone and for no other reason.

*sigh* As I said, you don't get it. Your responses clearly indicate that.

I know you're wrong, and from the responses I've seen to you in this thread, seems like that's the pervasive opinion. That's good enough for me. I'm certainly not going to spend more time trying to convince you. Have fun thinking you "won" this debate.

I don't care about "winning" anything here. I'm here to provide factual information. So many have misconceptions about the iPhone and it's so called "innovations"... The only innovating Apple has done is with their clever marketing.

This has been going on for a long time all the way back to the Apple Xerox fiasco.

Samsung has glass for the screen too.

All the capacitive digitizers are glass. Gorilla Glass is why the Samsung did not break.
