LOL...I read this thread as "Who else ate apples."
Need to refill my coffee.
Now the role is reversed and he has built a legion of automatons that are Iphone users. And he has everyone believing that he has invented all these cool gadgets like he led everyone to believe that the GUI on the Mac was invented by Apple. It WASN't! He copies other people's technologies just like everyone else, except this time he has a bigger market share and is afraid of losing the war again like he did to Windows!
It doesn't bother me a bit because I can't run apps in the background. I can always go back to them.
I don't need widgets on my phone. I don't even use them on my computer.
While the 3.2MP camera may seem too small of a number on the paper, in reality it works beautifully. You only need a large amount of pixels to print large pictures. I have an old Motorola with only 1.2MP camera. It takes wonderful pictures.
I have yet to drop a call on AT&T on my iPhone.
As for status... I don't know about that issue. It used to be 2-3 years ago, not anymore with so many out there. When everybody's got it, it's not a status thing anymore.
The iPhone made it possible for other phones to come out with similar technology. It is only natural that others will try to surpass Apple for the sake of progress.
As you know there will be a 4th gen iPhone too.
oh and another point Android is the faster growing app market although not the fastest Android fastest growing application store? Not so fast... | PreCentral.net

check this out (from an app dev):
"While I hate to agree on something Apple doing right, I must stay their closed platform way of doing things is bringing it much success. I think with all those phones Android has, and all the phones WinMo has, it’s diluting the market and not one handset can stand out and become the God phone. Google tried to push Nexus and had little success because HTC has a similar but better version coming out right after. That’s problem number one. The other is, I agree that with the multiple configurations each other phone has, it becomes increasing difficult to program for such. I think this [lack of this] attributes to the amount of developers and therefore amount of apps on the App Store. It’s so easy, a caveman can do it. Developers don’t have to worry about varying resolutions, buttons, etc…just imagine how difficult it is to think of a UI/UX for a phone that may or may not have hard buttons. Sure it could be done, but who the hell wants to worry about that, especially when the App Store has greater market share. What I like to see be done is something that I think Microsoft is going to do - not produce one phone, but set forth a standard in which the phone must meet (i.e set number of buttons, etc). This will make developing for their product much more appealing."

I mentioned this news to the admin but, I guess I was late.
My friend - who is a Iphone owner - jokingly told me I would have to use my N1 as a paper weight soon because, that's all it would be good for. I wasn't sure why he was telling me that until he told me about this lawsuit.
I don't hate Apple but, I would hate it if they halted delivery to the U.S. of the Andriod phones because of this lawsuit, that would suck. I hope they can reach a settlement before it gets that far.
I think it's always good/cool to have something different.
p.s android is giving all devs that have an app on the market with a 3.5 or better rating a free nexus1 or droid. that oughta be motivating enough for them to make good apps dont you think? coupled with such a fast growing market(3000 per month) i really dont think Android has a problem in that aspect.
