Is the limitation on the installation of applications outside the Android Market, and the Google search and other apps, due to AT&T? Or is it due to Motorola?
That is to say, an European Backflip will not have these limitations? Can someone confirm?
Stop Copying from &a, 21 Mar 2010actually it is so silly to see everyday big companies such motorola .. samsung and etc making ... moreDidn't Apple copied others by integrating a camera into their phone. Touchscreen market was already there before Apple arrived. LG had capacitive screen phone. The UI icons characteristic of the iPhone OS were first seen on Nokia 7710 ( have a look : http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_...ures-921.php ). Wi-Fi, GPRS, 3G, GPS... Why don't you say that Apple copied all these things. Its easy to say that everybody is copying Apple until you get to understand the evolution of mobile phones. The only credit Apple can take is to bring all the good things together in one device good that is easier to user suitable for the dumb and marketed it well with their penchant of closed source and proprietory stuff.

U dun like it, then dun like it. Period.
No one is forcing anything down anyone's throat
I have not heard any patent bring infringed, so what is being copied?
A phone is a phone. Life is more than I and phone.

Why didn't Henry Ford sue other companies competing with his invention, the internal combustion car? Why isn't every First-Person Shooter game out there being seized by the creators of Doom? Why hasn't Motorola shut down other competitors after it made the first-ever mobile phone?
Apple's cash cow iPhone is undoubtedly good, but not everyone's cup of tea. You can't just shove your opinion down everybody's throats as the supreme truth, because not everyone is like you.
Face it, the iPhone is just any other phone out there and it just so happens to be hip and new at its time of introduction that it was raised to stardom. But know this: other brands do not blatantly copy the iPhone. In fact, they are trying to outsmart it by using more updated interfaces, cooler designs and better usability. This war isn't over until the iPhone is trumped. The Droid, N900 and Nexus One already knock against the iPhone's throne.

And now as other companies try to best it, you're accusing them of blatantly copying Apple's "masterpiece?" The iPhone is not the second coming of Christ, you know.
News flash bud, the Apple OS is a fail piece of software, even the Symbian and Android interfaces are much, much more feature-laden. It's just that the iPhone has loads of apps and eye candy stuff that make people go wow. Try looking at any Android phone and see if you can see any "similarity" between the Android OS and Apple OS. I say, differences are minimal to nil. Different software built for different purposes. Apples to oranges.
actually it is so silly to see everyday big companies such motorola .. samsung and etc making copies of iphone ! in my opinion Apple still leader of touch screen and apple always the 1st in finding new ideas and technologies ... and other companies make copies and try to develop apples ideas but i noticed FAİL of other companies in that!!! with my respect to all companies
Samsung, Moto, and LG are such trying hard BS copying iPhones. Gorss! Nokia's following too. They totally copied coverflow, image gallery, and more from iPhone on their soon OS. It's so disgusting. Really stpd.

Take any touchscreen market phone out there and you will see that everything can resemble the iPhone, just with different control schemes. The main similarity: that big flat screen.
Man, I totally hate how all the high-ends right now try to resemble the iPhone. They look like those chinese shts who immitate the iPhone. It's disgusting.

If your choice is Iphone or nothing, I would advise you stick to the Iphone review and leave the rest of the reviews to us. We will help you to comment the rest, which are not good enough for you. Thanks.

I would rather let Motorola experiment with different designs first before coming up with a good one than it blatantly copying from other brands.
motorla seroiously needs a good design team . as theya re coming up with flawed designed on after the other .
the droid keypad is useless.and now this impractical design .
just make a phone with the htc touch pro2 keypad and a 4" screen and u have a winner .
how hard is that to understand moto !!!
