The Iphone4 launch has been so successful that not only Apple benefited from it AT&T cashed in as well. Not not bad for a phone some consider crap. 3.2 million iphone4 activated to date and funny thing is antennagate has not fazed demand at all

It's such a shame that Apple had to go & destroy the awesomeness that was Unix. I mean Linux is the best unix based platform bar ever. Hopefully Nokia will be back on track with amazing devices for amazing Linux OS. Meegoo needs to catch on, have a big developer base though to be serious & need to get loads of apps. Meamo didn't catch on to third parties, Operators. It should do but only a no of Linux Devs are making apps for meamo. Meego needs to change all that. It has the potential to be very powerful & bring things that android, IOS could only dream about! ROFL

I love how simple and easy the iOS UI is and the iPhone 4 is awesome but man Apple needs to ease up on the restrictions. I mean the phone is great but I can barely do anything I really want to with it without jailbreaking, which I don't want to do.

Androidy, 22 Jul 2010wow i never expect so many peoples switching to android and ditch iphone away that was great..... moreGoogle makes zero from Android, they give it away.
How do they make money then?
By collecting information on Android users and selling it to advertisers.
Android = Adware.
Face up to the truth.
To all the haters out there, Nokia profits are down by 2 thirds because of the competition of the iphone.
And apple shares are booming now that's cheered me up not even the n8 will get nokia out of this mess.
Iphone4 is breaking hearts including the haters :-)

I even won't talk about Nokia:))
iPhone is the best phone ever, and I'm pretty sure it will be for long future :)
nothing more to say here.
So are apple users happy with well apple. Yes they are because the touch interface is simple, quick, easy & consistent & does that well with good smooth actions. Glorious skins.
Abilities aside & not so good with not much in the way of customizability. I think that is the epicentre of apples problems with end users that want to have more funtionality available to them. The OS needs to be also more complient & controllable by end users actions & particular use of them to be specific to their need of use.
Technologies that are restricted to apples own proprietary convention system with more apis are being opened up to be more compatible, controllable in some ways but not enough. Cross compliancy also needs to be more compatible & useful.
Any comments, actions expressed are sololey the opinions of the author & are not meant to cause bias, upsets or sarcasm of any nature.
Apple may once have been the dominant OS provide to provide a simpl, easy, smooth & fast user interaction which does make all the difference to giving the end user with a better experience.
However functionality wise that is a very different story indeed & many apple uses are either unaware or are not interested in Funtionality & compatibility. The facts simply prove the list of functions that are missing or incompatible from a cross platform point of view.
For instance when considering a good phone. The touch interface, tactile feedback, simple, good looking GUI is important, so is speed, so is smooth operational transitions.
However that is only half of the story when considering a successful, immersive, consistent & positive happy experience.
Functionality & compatbility seem to be something consistently lacking from apple os, so does limiting the possibilities of what the user can personalize, change, achieve. Also limitations right down to using apple compliant & specific programs is what bothers me & makes me hate apple.
If considering these things you are too advanced or too knowledgable & understand what your needs are.
If you are not bothered about these key points made then you are an average joe who is a simple user who get's what they are. Simple, everything is fine & this person isn't advanced enough to be wanting anything else better or different because they aren't educated or knowledgable enough to be concerned enough.
You can return the Iphone for a full credit if you do not like it, how come people are not ???
You could return it and get any Nokia or Android or Samsung you like with ATT,
how come people are not returning ??? HOW COME ??
cruise, 22 Jul 2010Your facts are true and the majority of people purchasing the iphone 4 were ones who didn't ha... moreorry, a lot of new users as well, returns ? almost non exitent
Thry could have switched to other garbage phones if they wanted to..........
The " problems " are in your sick mind, the design of the external antenna in the lower outfacing corner is a lot better than inside the casing beaming 1900 MGZ in your head, pehaps this the reason why Nokia users say crazy things with their burned out brain
