The iPhone is the device to beat
What can’t be beat even though its only a year old? If you said 50 kids that have just learned to walk (1 year olds) you not only have some mental defect you’re also wrong. the answer is, of course, the iPhone. Yes, companies have had 15 months to copy the iPhone (or make something better) and all they’ve come up with is phones that look like the iPhone.
What do competitors hate about the iPhone? Freaking everything. From the marketing to the well, let Matt Hamblem tell you:
At this week’s CTIA show here, where hundreds of companies that build devices and applications or offer network services are convening, corporate leaders keep pointing out iPhone weaknesses—from networks issues to lesser video capabilities. But they also have to keep answering why their devices can’t be as special as the iPhone or its touch interface, slew of applications and functions.
Yep Matt is at this week’s CTIA show and is guaging the mood of the various vendors in attendance. There are surprisingly frank admissions from competitors throughout Matt’s article so be sure to read it.
