I can't believe they were actually able to use it as a marketing tool.
The Blackberry models (Curve, Pearl, World Phone) are the most practical phones on the market today. They do everything you need and don't have annoying locks/updates/premiums associated with them like the iPhone does. I don't know one person that has not looked at the iPhone as a waste of money 1 week after owning it.
The iPhone does not deliver, period.
i will only post one time because im not going to argue with you i just want to make a few points.
1. The iphone is so crappy and ppl think its "fail" then how come in just a few months the iphone has already taken 2nd place in the smart phone market (in US) Imagine if the iphone wasn't just ATT and was on all carriers it would already have taken over the smart phone market.
2. The iphone isn't perfect i agree its by far not perfect. But your comparing iphone(only months old) to blackberry etc (that has been out for a long time and has had how many revisions?)
3. FACT. apple starts out small with new products and updates them slowly but surely. The iphone WILL take over in the next few months as they update it. (e.g. The SDK comes out later this month and will increase the phones potential drastically)
p.s. about the iphone keyboard - they just updated it and now you can type multi letters at a time.(before it was just one letter at a time) So i can now type about twice as fast (with a little practice)
