quote: I didn't mean to imply Apple wasn't going for that market, surely they are. I just meant that anyone that heavily relies on typing long or many messages (email or text) on their phone would be using a Qwerty keyboard model like Treo, Blackberry, Q or one of many others. A touch screen cannot compete.
quote: “Apple did a fantastic job in bringing touch devices to market...They did a fantastic job with the user interface, they are a design icon," said Heins. "There is a reason why they were so successful, and we actually have to admit this and respect that."He is right...
quote: “History repeats itself again I guess...the rate of innovation is so high in our industry that if you don’t innovate at that speed you can be replaced pretty quickly. The user interface on the iPhone, with all due respect for what this invention was all about is now five years old.”And Right again.
quote: It was then and is still now a major pain in the ass to type a long email message on a virtual keyboard.

quote: The profit margins on mobile devices is going to begin drying up as more and more competitors offer worthy products for a lower price.
quote: Their best bet is to be bought out by somebody else so they can have access to their intellectual property and use the few things of value in the company.
quote: I'm not sure what this guy is trying to say.
quote: In what way has Apple fallen behind in regards to innovation?
quote: With android phones is there a consistent UI experience?
quote: What i have seen is mounds of carrier crapware that can't be uninstalled different for every phone.

quote: how god awful kies is
quote: If you have an iphone, an iPad, an Apple TV, and a Mac then everything works seamlessly together. WIthout installing extra software or configuring anything you can share music, videos, audio, pictures etc via iTunes and iCloud wirelessly to all devices.
quote: Translation: As long as you use only Apple devices and only Apples services, your experience will be good. As all these proprietary things will work (mostly) well together after handing Apple all your money.
quote: The 4s users are likely to eventually get another Apple phone, but there is no rush.
quote: Apple doesn't need to innovate.
