Wrong....its a matter of how they compare.
Pure feature option wise (especially after todays presentation), I'll say that the iPhone doesn't compare to a few others.
I'm talking video, camera quality, MMS, copy-paste, bluetooth, and on and on.
The question is : what emerging devices compare with regards to touchscreen sensitivity, screen size and simplicity of menus navigation. THAT is the rub....and there ARE. A few coming that might approximate it satisfactorily. Although I'll probably dumbdown my desires and get the iPhone, I'm definitely looking around until then.
I believe the Blackberry Thunder will be the first device to give Apple a run for their money. I don't think RIM has released a dud in the last 6 or so years...they're #1 in Smartphones right now by far and continue to grow. Problem is, Thunder is on VZW.
There are many look-alikes on the market lately, but the HTC Touch looks to be a major competitor in other countries. It is not available in the U.S., though, which means that it likely cannot be as successful, as the United States are major markets for phones.
