Anonymous, 10 Sep 2010iPhone started what exactly?????????????You asked what did Apple start?
Apple started to integrate features into a touchscreen phone that would provide excellent user experience. They started to take implementation of features seriously. Making features actually usable, and not just something to show on paper but ends up unusable due to poor implementation. Apple started the trend of touchscreen phones.
To start something does not always mean inventing a feature or being the first to come up with a feature. Sometimes it's about how features are implementated and integrated into a device.
apple didnt invent videocall, they reinvent it, and to be serious they done a great job reinventing it.

Someone did post on here a while back stating apple was the first to bring in video calling and when you watch the video from apple about it, from what i remember they said we are bringing video calling to the world.The way they said it was like its never been here before.

You accuse Steve of being a dictator, yet you seem to be the one who's dictating other people and disrespecting other people's choices that shouldn't in any way affect you. What's wrong with you?
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2010You are such a tool! you will defend Apple because it doesnt have DIVX with a statement like'w... moreIt's not about us following what Apple wants. It's about the iphone being the best device for us. It is true that I do not care for divx on a phone. Even if Apple decides to incorporate that to the iphone, I still wouldn't care for it. I think it's a waste of hardware space. I'd rather have Apple use that hardware space for something else more practical for a phone. Watching movies on my phone is the least of my intentions when buying a phone. So yes, I am fine without divx support on my phone.
Jay, 10 Sep 2010iphone started nothing, you know that is true. Dont defend your wanabe smartphone. You are t... moreApple started a lot of things in the mobile phone market, but it's not even about that. Users don't care who started what first. That is not what lookers look for when they evaluate a device. It's whether the device works best for them or not. How are the features implemented? How friendly is the UI? How fast, smooth, Nd stable is the device? How's the build quality? How's the service? Etc. Those are the things that people look into when they check out the device. No one cares which year video calling came out, or who came up with the first colored display, or which device was first to browse the web.

No wonder phone companies pay people to post here complaining about 3G videocalls.

Iphone is the only phone to come with video calling out of the box that doesn't need an app, and totally free because it's via wifi. Once facetime gets out there, it will be the most used video calling media. Video calling is best at the comfort of your home anyway. And it's free, like you said.

And to be honest with you, I haven't read any comment from iphone users claiming that the iphone is the first one to have video calling features. That's a ridiculous thing to say, that anyone could just laugh at. The MAJORITY knows that video call feature have been around for quite a while now. Although I have to say, that facetime's implementation is the smoothest one by far.

Free Facetime calls to iPod touch's, no wonder all these phone company people keep whining about losing money because people won't have to pay for 3G calls.

The iphone is getting better and better every year, and is gaining more and more users. All Apple needs to do is lose its exclusivity with at&t. I they expand to all carriers, the iphone will continue to be a top player in the high end segment.

As the artical states by 2014 iOS will loose 25% of market and android will grow by about 50%.

Crapple did not invented this like some people says.
