You don't know the difference between a feature phone and a smartphone. The iPhone is most definately a smartphone. It runs a full mobile OS. Feature phones are useually very limited in terms of expandability (iPhone can be called a limited smartphone wheres Apple restricts direct access to certain hardware and software functions unless you jailbreak which then you can do pretty much anything you want), they are limited to java apps which do nothing. The Apps on the iPhone utilize the OS's APIs and they also make direct use of the processor and such, something a feature phone with a proprietary UI can't do with java apps.
You probably think its a feature phone because Apple doesn't let anyone else use its iPhone OS. You're basically saying a Mac isn't a proper computer when you say and iPhone isn't a smartphone. I'll probably stop the lecture here because if you think the iPhone is just a feature phone then your probably one of those people who have no understanding with these sorts of things.
The Iphone is per se not a smartphone. It's a feature phone with an application marketplace app. Start getting that.
Whats the use of having an Almighty Brand when that Almighty Brand itself makes so many phones but barely earns anything out of it. It doesn't translate into Dollars, while the iPhone itself takes more than 70% of smartphone market in terms of revenue earned for 2009, which is over 30% revenue if we consider the entire mobile phone market too. That's a big chunk of sales dollars for a company that barely owns 3% of the world mobile market. Nokia for all its 40% mobile market share took a beating in profits and made a loss.
And if you think Google's Nexus One is gonna do better, they only sold 20,000 Nexus Ones for their 1st opening weekend, which is nothing compared to 1.5 Million for Apple 3GS and 250,000 Motorola Droids sold in that same period of time.
So much hype, but so little influence. Bah.

Father being NOT able to offer phones as small as V3688? How many YEARS did it take the almighty brand to make its first flip phone AFTER MicroTAC? How many YEARS did it take the almighty brand to adapt the micro-USB plug AFTER V8/V9? BTW, the almighty brand doesn't seem to know how to charge a phone via USB....thanks father.

zc, 13 Jan 2010not true that it's android 2.1, it's 1.6its true!!
Nokia is the father of mobile phone - he is getting old and out-of-dated;(. My goodness! Still people using Nokia nowadays?
Nokia makes phones with faulty OS and keeps releasing new phones with the same faulty OS! Android seems to be the future OS!
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2010next phone is gonna be from...let me guess.....compaq..:)Lenovo has been into mobile business since long, long before it bought IBM Thinkcenter's and Thinkpad's.
I can say that coz this takeover happened in 2005 and that time i was an IBM employee.
[deleted post]Call me naive, I thought except some very low end phones, most phones from 1st World are at least tri-band (GSM900/1800/1900), which allows basic calls on most countries except Korea & Japan.
Most smartphones from these 1st world countries should support UMTS, which allows calls be made in Japan (not sure about Korea).
Is that global enough?
