> In reply to [deleted post]my gosh, calm down, lol. apple, just like nokia, samsung and se also has the freedom to sell their products. why are you so upset? lol. the iphone is indeed a cool phone, and there is a reason why it's a cool phone. it simply works great, so don't be dumb ok :)

you make it seem like it's dumb to get a phone that simply works and easy to operate. now that is one dumb thought, lol. the iphone is more than just having a cool device. it's having a device that can actually impact your daily activities. something that no phone has ever done. my career and life is already challenging enough, why would i need a complicated phone to add to my life's challenges?

as for its price. well it's really for mid to high income earners. don't buy a bmw and complain about the premium gas it requires.

as for that chinese man who committed suicide. he worked for a company that is contracted with apple. the company is a 3rd party vendor. so please.

My cousin wanted to change her cell so she went to phone shops and got away with N78, while in that respect of specs and design, you could easily find N82 or N79 as better choice. but you see, not all people visit places like gsm arena and understand all aspect shown here. so what they would buy? yes.. what their friend talked and interested or owned is the one attracting them. You just need to tell this people ONE superior specs of particular phone that doesn't exist on any other phone. e.g. touchscreen - to him/her and they wouldn't bother to search any other aspects. They'll think: everybody using it, this is good, superior, so this one is perfect for me. No wonder fashion phone like iphone or blackberry are in everybody's hand these days. it's spreading really fast before it ended.

Apple just prepaid Toshiba $US500,000,000 for flash memory for their iPhones and iPods.

Component suppliers supply components that's their business, companies like Samsung, LG, Sharp, Toshiba etc make parts to order.

They don't design which parts and how they are assembled or how they will operate.

Most people know that the screen is from SHARP, the music chip in ALL Apple music products is Samsung, etc.

But the same goes for other Manufacturers.

You guys think that there can only be one at the top, but that's not even the point. The iPhone is not meant to be the best phone out there, but no one can deny that it has changed the way people think about phones.

Why else do you think that your favorite brands like LG and Samsung are now suddenly spitting out TOUCH phones like there is no tomorrow?!
Nokia is falling behind because it is NOT doing that.

In Japan, the iPhone is a flop. That's because people love their SHARP and Panasonic flip phones.

It's not about us geeks, it's about those who DON'T care about phones that find the iPhone so appealing.
