If you look at the history of Symbian you'll see that Symbian had its origins in multitasking. A manufacturer when makes a device should have things clear in his mind, what (amount of power) does he wants the user to have.
Multitasking is something that Apple still refuses to provide. And not to mention all the things that you do only after "jailbreaking" the iPhone ( http://blog.gsmarena.com/10-good-reasons-to-jailbreak-your-iphone-no-matter-what-generation/ ). Where everybody is getting their power gadgets into the touch category and maintaining their non-touch devices, Apple is kept busy improving the iPhone bringing it up to the levels of competition.
If you try to think what was going on in the minds of iPhone makers at Apple, you'll realise that they thought about a touch based iPod and then thought it could become a phone. And voila! we have iPhone. The first ver. didn't even had message forwarding. They have it now. Clearly indicating that they didn't develop this platform to be used on Cellular network. Just a Wi-Fi capable device having a browser. iPod Touch.
No matter how much you want to believe that Apple made the greatest thing ever, evidences point that it was almost an experiment-went-wrong saved by marketing strategy and iPod. Now going strong due to a previously unknown but surprisingly thriving species of humans known as "DUMBS". Sorry about the language.
I cant understand why htc people continue to compare hd2 with iphone. Iphone is best mobile phone in the world. Htc hd2 is like a big brick, cant use with one hand and its very very slow. And moreover it have windows(oh god) which is so much complicated that u gets frustrated many times. And why do they call it hd2 when it dont support hd videos and neither it have hd display. It does not even support divx.
Common htc people u guys r just making fun of urself by comparing this brick toGREAT iphone. Iphone beats htc any day. I know htc people r very jealous of iphone owners because they cant afford iphone. Htc people r never happy with their device thats why they always keep changing rom in their devices. But apple owners never use custom rom because apple is best in terms user interface. Even after 3 years no mobile phone company can beat touch screen experience of iphone. Both iphone and hd2 have capacitive screens but usability in iphone is just at another level which hd2 cant achieve. So my advise to all htc hd2 aka brick users is "go sell it and add some money and get iphone".
I hope all iphone supporters will enjoy this post

Darren, 22 Mar 2010Is it true the iphone 4G is comming out ths 2010??? give it chance release till 10g oso techless n always late in technology
worst is worst no matter how hard u save it, the world know 3gs is world most stupid techless jurassic phone, bwaaaaahahahahahahaha
Motorola Milestone is far much better then iPhone 3GS. It lacks many features which Milestone dosen't. The best is the LCD part which is awsome on Moto Milestone. It has stereo speakers, 5 MP camera, Bigger screen size with better resolution, bluetooth connectivity & many more features much much better then iphone. If want to buy a phone with all the capibilities of iPhone then buy Motorola Milestone it is truly amazing.

What Apple have done is elimanted features that are not desperately important and replaced them with a wide selection of Apps. I, along with many people who have bought the iPhone, aint too bothered about the size of the camera. Yeah a flash would have been great but by it not being there didnt exactly stop me getting this phone as im not too bothered. Bluetooth being headset support: I prob used bluetooth about once every few months for file transfers, so this aint exactly life or death. Headset was the most important for me. Flash in the browser: yes when it comes down to viewing videos online, you need flash but again the overall browsing experience has not been comprimised. And with apps such as YouTube and DailyMotion, as well as TVcatch up via the Safari browser, this more that makes up for it.
So every mobile manufacturer copies each other. However what Apple have done is create a grounbreaking device which clearly has influenced so many other brands. The pathetic famous words "iPhone Killer" wouldnt exist otherwise. And no phone has any chance of "killing off" the iPhone.

What they don't realise is that didn'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_7710-pictures-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.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970xxx the nearest you've been to an iPhone is a cardboard cut out of the phone which you held in your hand at the same time as your Samsung Jet. lol
Remember mate, save some of that pocket money every week and you'll be able to buy an iPhone later at xmas :)
No camera flash, 3.2mp camera....oh im so gutted! Think i'll just sell my iPhone and go for a phone with a bigger camera and flash as this is the most important feature. I mean if the phone rings i'll ignore it, if I get texts i'll ignore it, just so I can take pictures all day on my PHONE. And when im showing my phone to my friends, i'll turn it around and show the back and say WOW look at my camera. Again the camera is the most important feature on the phone as most normal people go round taking photos all day on their phones.....
