Anonymous, 11 Sep 2010There were no video calling phones ten years ago. Please feel... moreiPhone is no where near the first to make video calls - at least here in the backwaters of Australia we did not have video calling 10 years ago. The first call was made in April 2003. http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2010/06/australias-fir­st-mobile-video-call-april-15-2003/

People do have preferences, as without Apple, the almighty brand would still refuse to release (3G) touchscreen phones.

Anonymous, 14 Sep 2010Is that why people line up to buy them? Oh no, they don't. ... moreDohohoho, slaps me on the knee!

Seriously, your argument all goes down the drain the moment you called the Milestone "a piece of junk", when you don't have any proof of its technical inferiority against the iPhone.

Cold hard facts man, most Android phones have better hardware and software than the iFad: screen display, camera, SD card slot, physical keyboard, the whole Android OS.

Out of 100 friends/relatives/colleagues i only know 2 girls that have the iPhone, most of them rest choose to use smartphones like Nokia E-series and various HTC models.

Most iPhone users are social posers and productive wannabes. They need people to see that Apple logo. They talk about apps to let people know that they have a Apple product and fit into that whole social wannabe poser circle.

Where can you buy a Milestone anyway they don't sell that piece of junk in many places, it belongs in the land of misfit toys.

Though you'll be surprise, if you're in a table of 10 friends / relatives, and 3~4 of them using iphones may start talking about their apps...

I have a hard time to even gather a gang of Android users to get togehter and share the apps we downloaded....even though thousands are out there.

Well why didn't you say so.

It's still a piece of crap.

  • jjsoviet

[deleted post]So... we're arguing about versions of the same phone, suddenly? Well even if I made a mistake in interchanging the Droid with the Milestone, the two are nearly identical in specifications.

iPhone still loses out either way. Isn't that our main point of contention here? Or are we still gonna talk about GSM vs. CDMA?

It just tells that the Droid is a CDMA-capable version of the same phone. No drastic changes in hardware or anything.

They're basically two identical phones save for the frequencies they operate on. CDMA vs. GSM is just one factor out of many others, and does not invalidate my claim of the Droid/Milestone being superior to the iPhone, hardware and software-wise.

If I had made a drastic change in comparison, let's say from a Droid to a Nexus One, then I would be in the wrong. But the fact is the only differences between the Droid and Milestone are minimal, and even frequency types don't translate to a major advantage by Apple.

You distinctly wrote "Droid" and now you expect to come along and change your story.

Lame.

Andrew, 13 Sep 2010You really think that anyone is going to take that seriously?Absolutely! It's not about being serious or not, it's about the truth that everebody can see anyway, cause i don't think none of us are blind. It stills exists wether someone says it or not.

You think anyone except iApples takes Steve Jobs seriously?

Well this guys comment weighs maybe 10 million more fans and shows than the wannabe "mini-me Steve Jobs" commenting on this website.

After doing alot of sales investigating and having a user profile poll vote a very famous american TV/radio personality once said "Apples Iphone are for fruitcakes, wannabes, women with chihuahua, posers and 14 year old highschool girls"

Probably the best comment i have ever heard. Spot oN! That even goes for the profile here in Sweden, without a doubt.
