iPhone 4

AT&T has had this in lock down since 2007 and at first the iPhone was the undisputed juggernaut, and it was the phone to beat by all companies. Despite limitations, consumers were willing to "put up" with the short comings of this device and "fork out" alot in initial cost of ownership and jacked up prices on data plans simply for the right to own this iconic elitist phone.

Palm was the 1st victim, refusing to change anything until it was too late they wound up selling off the "Treo" name to HTC, pumped out the heaping pile of crap the Palm Centro for a mass appeal PDA with low cost of admission simply to maintain palm on life support to keep some operating capital in the bloodlines. Then laying off over half of their domestic workforce. Then eventually released the Palm Pre WebOS about 2 years too late but this is only because they had to snatch a top apple designer that was a key player that brought the iPhone to market as we know it. Lets observe a moment of silence for Palm...

Windows Mobile (5.0 - 6.5) Devices took a huge hit as they were dwindleing in numbers as the iPhone gained momentum. Even motorola and samsung stopped production of winmo devices due to their lack of appeal.

Nokia even felt the burn of Steve Jobs flipping the mobile industry over and making it grab their ankels and bite a pillow. Symbian is the death spiral as Palm was just two years ago. What is NEW from symbian? Really tell me..

Android (Google) is the last stand against the iPhone. Companies like HTC and Samsung are developing and bringing to market phenominal, ground breaking devices with true jaw dropping features that people want. But Google is scary in its own way... there is simply somthing sinester about a company as large as google that their main page is simple a blank screen with a search bar... What do they know about you?

Blackberry seems to be holding their own simply because they do what they do for the people that they do it for and they do it better than anyone else as they are the hands down leader in being a freaking corporate email machine... Oh blackberry just how many familes have you ruined by tethering millions of working parents even tighter to their jobs and away for their children

Now Apple is trying to patent the slab style pda with touch interface and protect is "intellectual property" Motorola tried this with the flip phone with the Star TAC. Good luck on that one Apple.. what is crazy is that they just might be able to do it.

In summary the iPhone was top of the line (three years ago that is) and Apple has a funny way of calling things "enhancements" when it should be called "stuff you should of has 3 years ago" ie MMS, data tethering, ffc, and insurance. for the Educated buyer there are a number of devices that will out class and out perform the sacred iPhone and you dont have to look that hard, I promise.
