    Samsung phone are not usually of good quality....i.e. do not last more than12 - 18 mths IMHO The lack of WiFi hurts it the most but it is a nice looking toy.

    I think the keyboard really misses the point. If it didn't have the keyboard, than maybe.

    And the style goes beyond the product itself. As I said before, Apple has done a great job making their products 'cool'.

    No, I think the keyboard is great. The main complaint about the smartphone keyboards was that they were so cramped and small. This keyboard is not cramped at all. It's a lot bigger than the iPhones virtual keyboard, and it's only there when you need it to be.

    The thing with smartphones is that almost all manufacturers that had keyboardless ones have now gone to some sort of integrated keyboard. Smartphones have been around for a while now, and the "killer ap" for them is email and instant messaging, and doing that with a touch screen or keypad is not an optimal solution. In fact it's a real PITA. People can be fast with a keypad, but even then, there is a need for some sort of tactile feedback, which a touchscreen won't have. I think Apple has made a major mistake not having a keyboard of some sort, coming into the market fairly late and not taking past lessons other vendors learned the hard way to heart, but who knows what tricks they have up their sleeves?

    Really? So I assume your phones are all made by Bell Telephone, your TVs by RCA, CD players by Phillips, and your cars are all Fords?

    The one thing that really set the iPhone apart for me was the touchscreen keypad which changes depending on which application you are using and as Steve Jobs said, if they have a new idea then they can simply change it with a downloadable software update, with hardware it needs to be physically changing. Also it has the option to be customisable depending on the consumer preferences, not just as a matter of taste but it can also help people with disabilities or avoid repetitive strain injury. Also from an international perspective it is much cheaper for Apple to design software based keyboards than producing seperate hardware keyboards for seperate parts of the world.

    Apples multi touch system does require a lot of work and it is far from perfect, but I do think this is the way that phones and computers are going. I seen this video the other day where this guy was just controlling objects and things with his hands that even someone who has never used a computer before can intuitively use, I think the old mouse and keyboard technology will start fading out in the next few years (think Minority Report where Tom Cruise is controlling the computer with his hands ).

    Really? You do know that a lot of Apple products are made by companies like Samsung, ASUS, and others. Haven't you ever wondered why Samsung and ASUS don't sell their laptops in the US?

    She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
    and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
    Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.
