winning with a single phone at a time not releasing 60 that dont do anything better than the last. if one a day keeps the docter away then 14 million must feel amazing.

Anonymous, 20 Oct 2010It's not about Apple's successes or failures! It's not about envy... Just about anyone can buy... moreI heartily concur. The iPhone is indeed a phenomenal device, but is by NO means that it is the BEST smartphone that ever existed. This is a fact Apple fanboys have been thoroughly ignoring for the past years, still clinging to their twisted notion that anything made by Apple and its almighty Jobs will be the greatest device in the entire planet.
People should see the fact that there are competitors around, devices with equal or even better features than their precious iPhones and iPods. There would be no innovation without competition, no improvement without rivalry. Don't translate the monopolistic, totalitarian mind of Steve into the real world.
Well, what do ya think why do Apple sells so much iPhones? cos in USA it costs about 150-200euros...lol
The interesting thing is that their mobile-device sales are outstripping their desktop PC sales 5 to 1, implying that a lot of people out there are using their iPhone/iPad with non-Mac desktops. Unless "Mac" doesn't include MacBook/Mac Pro. Of course there will be those who don't actually connect their iPhone to a computer, but they would be few and far between if they want to use it as an iPod too.
If only iTunes didn't suck donkey dong :--P
[deleted post]It's not about Apple's successes or failures! It's not about envy... Just about anyone can buy an iphone! Anyone! The sad fact is that, you and the rest of apple users think that because you have an iphone you are special... Or better than the rest... Lol! Now, THAT is pathetic! The iphone is just a phone... just a phone, not a ticket to heaven like someone else wrote!

Any phone as nice as iph4 and same function on market?? Hiring a designer (both hardware and sw) is more expensive than assembling 12mp on the phone!!
It is very easy to add fm radio function indeed. But music quality from it is shit. Apple never give their customer technology which is not very good. Take videocalling over 3g for example. If 4G evolves around the world videocalling over 4g will be enabled. For those of u who are complaining about iph5, apple always update once a year but due to the pattern iph5 will not be worth to update. 3g and 3gs was similar so iph5 will be similar to iph4.The most possible update is shield over steel frame to increase signal strength.
[deleted post]Nail on head.
Most of the iphones rivals are feature phones. The best this, the best that, but the Iphone is a joy to use. This balls about sheep and brainwashing is the best the haters can come up with? Lame lame lame.
You buy a phone because it suits you. The N8 is for those who want a decent camera as well as a phone. The Galaxy S is for those that want the best tech in a phone. The iphone is for casual users.
deep space bar, 19 Oct 2010amature XD you go write blog then all this info is true a backed up so you can't hide ... moreI don't need to create a blog, because there are hundreds of sites out there already proving that blog wrong with it's reviews. It's petty amateur journalism (or believing that everything on the web is true that is its downfall)

well of course people care about style and fashion! Otherwise why do you think all these malls are for? Why do we have worldwide fashion brands. And yes when it comes to style I'm going to choose an apple or sony product any day over a samsung or lg! If I can get style + technology why would I get geeky + technology.
It's a matter of taste, some people just don't care about their looks, shape, and cloth so samsung would suit them more. Others care about style and being attractive and also they believe the best so they go and get an iphone 4.
End of story,

It's amazing to see the power scrwany old Jobs holds on his brain-dead customers!! Wow, I'm sure he could sell a steaming turd called the iCrap, and I bet there would be hundreds of numb-minded zombies lining up to get one for $1,000! He could even tell them that the stench is a fantastic odor and they would believe them! It's amazing what people do just to boost their ego a little! Pathetic!
nicksti, 19 Oct 2010I am sure he is well aware that he was talking about internet radio.
And from a national an... moreI can listen to FM-radio a whole day and the battery is still far from empty, but listening to Internet Radio is only possible a few hours and wifi is not availible everywhere and 3G-signal is not always strong enough. InteenetRadio is good but it drains the battery to much for listening in background all day while working. IPhone-users defend lack of FM-radio in the same way they defended 3Gs lack of flash... FM-radio is standard today, and IPhone4 is the most expensive of all phones so it should definetly have a FM-radio.
Apple-products sell well because users use them as fashionitems, and it proves that anything can be sold if the advertising is gigantic.
IPhone-users become as members of an exclusive "cult", where they can see themselfs as smarter than everyone else, and Apple is their God. The IPhone-cult is almost like a new religion, and the masshysteria when a new IPhone is released is absurd because it is just a phone, not a gateway to heaven...
albkik, 19 Oct 2010why everyone says the iphone is expensive?? it's only $199.99 at AT&T with 2 year contract... morethe 2 year ATT contract is what is expensive.... costing closer to $2000 than $1000. When one includes all the fees and taxes the cost sore past 2K. the cost of the phone is "subsidized" by the large monthly contract rate.
"it only cost $199" is pure marketing hype.
why everyone says the iphone is expensive?? it's only $199.99 at AT&T with 2 year contract, thats why its selling like crazy, its superior to other phones and also same price or cheaper.
How to you sap the cash out of your minions pockets......the release a 'new' iphone with minium updates and major faults,get them all to cough up buckets of cash for it.....then release a newer 'fixed' model and get the sad fanboys to choke it up again.....easy was to 14 million sales!
new iphone 5 ready for release......cough it up says steve:
I can totally understand why samsung are selling well since most of their phones are cheap and plasticy including their flagship SGS. But come on apple, your phone are very high priced and yet you sold 14.1 m just wow!
Bravo apple, I'm not even an apple fan but I respect your great achievement.
