This was a quote from Nokia CEO as they have also want to enter the Apps store similar to Apple. Quote" Twenty years of efforts from operators and vendors to create mobile applications that customers like is overtaken in a heartbeat by someone that never done it before," Nordstrom said."
One word I have to say you can be the leader in Market by Sales Globally, but one can be ahead in technology and vision for the future and that is where Apple is having a benchmark where others just copy and market their products to stay ahead, but still it is the first one which will be remebered for a lifetime. Kudos Steve, you have now made others think !! Which you have been thinking and putting on the table.

Unlike you who is obviously bitter about the Iphone's success, lol. Sorry to tell you, but the Iphone outsold Nokia smartphones =) Not because Nokia phones are poor phones, but because the Iphone is the better smartphone =) Deal with it =)

When Moto started to use mini-USB to charge its V3 phone, who else ever thought about using USB to charge the phone? And the beloved almighty brand finally figures how to put a micro-USB plug on its 5800...only the phone still CANNOT be charged by USB!
Back to iphone, I'm glad to know my boss just dumped his almighty brand phone for an iphone...
And I wonder how many 5800's were returned / resold vs. the number of iphones...my wife and my manager have been keeping theirs since Aug last year....much longer than any of their previous phone.

here's a suggestion to you kid, go take a computer class before you embarrass yourself apple fanboy. apple is useless
artic_xp, 28 Apr 2009Apple is well known for implementing proprietery here and there. If apple can, why can't adobe? Apple doesn't develop proprietary, they develop standards. They developed WebKit, USB, Firewire, and recently Mini DV to name a few. In terms of Operating Systems, they developed the first commercial GUI PC user interface with a mouse. Without Apple, we would be decades behind in technology.
artic_xp, 28 Apr 2009Apple is well known for implementing proprietery here and there. If apple can, why can't adobe? So which software from Apple do you HAVE TO install to use the web or develop websites?
Apple doesn't even make software for Linux but I am not blocked in by any Apple proprietry standards.
Nokia uses WebKit in their S60 browsers, Android uses WebKit in it's browser, Palm uses WebKit as the basis of it's Pre operating system.
WebKit is open source, WebKit was developed by Apple.
Even the songs from iTunes are DRM free, Apple has such marketing power that it could force the record company to allow it, songs from Nokia can't be used as ringtones or shared by Bluetooth.
So before you mouth of with some vague suppositions why don't you look at what's happening in the real world.

The iPhone doesn't need Flash and as HTML5 develops to become the standard neither will anyone else.
