When the first iPhone came out, it didn't seem like a smart phone. It didn't even have apps. To me, the iPhone is a smart phone on training wheels.

So because it hada higher resolution, which there is hihger now, and a case that can shatter if dropped it's the best phone and most elegant looking???????? Sorry peoples there has always been better phones then the Iphone for every model. And it's because I4 was the first smart phone Apple even made, and even then it was outdone by many. And ahead????? Considering the fact that only their fourth phone was just released they should have had the top noch most absolute epic tech in every and they only now made an ok one! I mean serious. If Apple was putting even have the effort in maybe they would've had the best ever. i could only immagine what the Omnia Hd or and of the Galaxy S line would be like if it was the only thing Samsung worked on. You wouldn't even have the grounds to try and argue this. There would be nothing even close to it by light years. Yet there is Iphone... behind...behind.....behind.

1983 Motorola released the dynatac 8000x which was the first commercially available mobile phone. Also the guy that invented it (martin cooper) who worked for motorola, first tested the mobile phone in 1973. SE did make an early "suitcase" mobile phone, along with many others such as panasonic etc but the first was a motorola.

Well, the you talk about tv's and stuff, everyone would be copying Apple (Apple would be like Einstein but better)... And say that Galaxy Tab copied iPad... That's like saying BMW is copying Mercedez for the simple fact they both build great cars...

As for Darkangels6sic6, apart from the part about Windows, I couldn't have said it better myself...
