Apple have done a great job. The guy pushing the Nokia just comes across as an idiot. Let's face it, Nokia are/were the king... but Apple absolutely trumped them on this one...

I think the battle of words between the two is a great example of brand guys too close to their product, so that they cannot look at it from a consumer point of view. It is like the car companies getting excited because their car does 0-60 in 9.2 seconds and their competitor takes 9.4; maybe an impressive technical achievement but; a) how often does the average consumer get to go from 0-60 in a straight line, dry empty road, no police or cameras etc and b) for most people 9.2 and 9.4 are effectively the same thing.

I think the point about Iphone is exactly what you say; it's the whole thing that excites people. my guess is that iphone users are probably more likely than average to use many features, but even so a lot won't use all the features anyway; certainly the bulk of mobile phones have far more features and capabilities than their owners ever use so it can't be the long (dull) list that turns them on can it?

Also i suspect there is more than a bit of green eyed monster in there too- not too long ago Nokia pretty well owned the cool style area of phones- not because they were so great in truth but because no-one else was even close on the look and feel. Now they have been caught up with by several competitors (Samsung, Sony ericson especially) and the iphone is one more body blow as it appears to be ahead of them in this territory.

I agree- i would love to have a brand that loved me so much that they would pay for the right to carry me around, as well as paying to purchase me!
