Get it from Nokis CEO:
Engadget publishes a memo written by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and posted to the company's employees about the fragile state of their business. The memo is surprisingly candid about the challenges Nokia faces with increased competition from the Apple iPhone and Google's Android. He compares Nokia's current situation to a man standing on a burning platform where the only choice is to shift from expected behavior and "jump".
Of the iPhone's entry into the market, he wrote:
In 2008, Apple's market share in the $300+ price range was 25 percent; by 2010 it escalated to 61 percent. They are enjoying a tremendous growth trajectory with a 78 percent earnings growth year over year in Q4 2010. Apple demonstrated that if designed well, consumers would buy a high-priced phone with a great experience and developers would build applications. They changed the game, and today, Apple owns the high-end range.
Elop acknowledges that even though the original iPhone launched in 2007, Nokia does not yet have a product that is close to that experience. While they have been working to innovate, they fell behind and missed big trends.
does anyone know when the white iPhone 4 arrive in Europe- France? tks a lot.
May not be the best at everything but its the best all round package. Most Roid based phones have serious issues such as lag or poor touch screens. Iphone doesn't it just does things well.

"Look man the Nokia N8 is a symbol of luxury or what not but its not good in performance.whereas the iPhone is true mobile fone for people on the go.besides N8 loses when compared to iPhone"
You see? Try harder next time please.

Anonymous, 08 Feb 2011I have 3gs. What is BIG difference?Main differences:
- New body design
- Front facing camera - Video chat (FaceTime, Tango, Skype etc)
- Retina display - very crisp and bright display
The other differences are mainly the usual improvements in different areas: Better battery life, improved performance etc.

I m india and have used many Phones from Nokia 9500, Htc tytn 2, htc diamond, Samsung Galaxy S, Htc HD7, and iphone4.
Let me tell you all phones have some or the other issues except iphone4. I had never used an apple product earlier. But after using iphone4 I was so satisfied that gave-up my windows laptop and shifted to Mac book pro.
Now I am waiting for IPAD 2, All apple products are Beautiful and best.
