If people wanna waste money on the Iphone then let em, it's their money, no need for name calling. There so many ways to kill a cat and phone OS's practically curry out the same basic function. If Symbian or Android were the best OS's it would reflect through phone sells. Android is getting there but it way too fragmented leaving IOS at an advantage. Symbian is practically dead and WP7 is still an infant, BB for some reason can't quite make that push for world domination.

If you read one of the newest news articles regarding phone sales, you will see Apple sold a whooping 18million iphones and had a profit on products around 26billion, (firstly apple copied nokia in making a phone) however nokia... and failing symbian, only sold 108 million units, total profit withstanding.

Symbian may be on the way out (due to being outdated and not delivering more current/ modern functionality) in favour of wp7, but make no mistake, apple will never be the mobile phone company nokia is, still is and still will be sales wise long after the iphone 17 is out.

Well.. Everyone talking rubbish..
iPhone is just a dream for everyone eventhough it is overprice
If you still want to enjoy those ultimate apps in Apple, then buy an iPod touch. Then if you want a supreme mobile experince, buy an android or a Symbian but don't buy a wp7 because it doesn't worth it and waste your money..

What school lets you study at their computer science department? before you comment on others, think about what you are saying. And find another career.

all empires will one day fall.....including Apple.They are running out of ideas.Ipad....LOL

Samsung and other companies have better phones in the market....that is why apple started suing again, to get money while they can.

Android has worst music player. WP7 has no apps. Both of them have low resale value! both of them lags and hang.
PS: I had iph4, sgs and omnia 7. Now I sold everything to wait for iph5 lol!
