hey m8 2011 is nt over yet nokia ll comeback aftr they release their N9 .
I think the cooperation with Microsoft won't help them. If they were smart, they would go more toward N9 and MeeGo system, and pull out from crisis as a new "cool alternative". Instead, they showed that they are very conservative and don't won't to sacrifice the status of "seriousness" to ther faithful users (who also switch to iOS and Android), but nothing can be achieved without sacrifice, and they are already doomed with this attitude.

That was allways the case - after explosive popularity of iPod in the early 2000s, other manufacturers implemented even more features that become common demand, but Apple still wins in this "who is more original" game of our society.
When a company that's been selling "personal computers" for the last 20 years can simply step in and sweep the market with just ONE PHONE in about 3 years time, its time to Shut Up and salute.
And that company ladies and gentlemen, like it or not, IS Apple!

very few functions are dropped off the older phones & only then because ... moreIf you don't know, apple do several updates only to block jailbreaks and get more money with appstore.
if the jailbreak devs stop, you will never see an update for apple products.

The only UI that is partialy original in comparison to iOS is Windows Phone 7, and great also... however it will never become as powerful, even if they eliminate all restrictions...

People actually don't know what they want, even all of them individually think they do, because we are all slaves to industrial paradigms (and political and economical for same reason) that are created by the ones we can call shepherds. The majority of others choose to be sheep, including other manufacturers. For instance, it is clear that Samsung Galaxy S is a copy of iPhone, and all smartphone today are copies of the very same concept coined by Apple. Those who did not adapt, declined, like Nokia as we see. The point is to use inertia of the masses. Many marketing experts would say: "people want allways the same if its good" - but I think that this inertia could be used as NON-refusal when something new is introduced.
Because many thought that something constant and stable is allways succesful - self-confident Nokia, and many others before it, have fallen, while Apple used the inertia of the people, the fact that they are like plasticine that can be moulded when they make an input of the concept of life.
Apple does not sell hardware, but the concept of using it: the ideas, the lifestyle. That's why it's so succesful and others aren't. But it's curios how others aren't...
[deleted post]Not everyone is a sheep some people can think for themselvs and the last thing we need is another "shepard" attempting to tell everyone what is right and what is wrong.Instead what companies like Apple should do is listen to theyr costumer´s opinions and complaints and change theyr services acordingly
it's Apple season just wait for some time this season will soon come to an end

nokia is shaterred.. Its done for.
For apple concentrating on single iPhone will make possibility of improvement much better.They have time to include make its product more improved. Finally apple will rule in the smartphone market.
iPhone means crap phone for technical people bcoz we r in computer era where phone should be mini computer which made phone smart... time has gone for feature phone.. but i will accept that apple created a ecosystem how to get the money of American people by made them fool. 100$ phone is sold @ 600$ ..it is the 500$ extra money which going in the pocket of poor steve. and market ing agency ...
