As said earlier, its a full touch screen smartphone and the screen is bigger than most of the common cellphones hence the battery will "obviously" drain, however, It lasts for atleast a day.
I have never needed to change my cellphone battery. 1 battery is enough for me to do all the things I want on my cellphone.
"Non-standard proprietary cables" ??? What??
Blessing of the vendor?? iTunes has 2 millions apps. More than any freaking smartphone on the planet. Huh!
Ability to remotely wipe out apps is IMHO, a nice feature for those who are concerned about their privacy incase they lose their phones. No other phone has this feature.
Tied to a store= More apps to play with.
One carrier?? That may be the case only in U.S. Not in Asian markets.
I dont know why you jerk about commercials

On the other hand, I m not praising the iphone. Just my 2 cents


Well... I see some are in denial...others are backing up my points..

Let me expand/clarify..

Any device needs to be charged more than once a day...FAIL.
Pretty obvious.

Any device that wont let me change the freakin battery or insert a spare...FAIL.
Whether you 'need' it or not...Many do.
As mentioned, I carry an additional battery for my BB. Rarely have to employ it because my battery lasts for days.
iphone batteries are 'perma-locked' Hehehehe.
Well..I suppose you could crack it open and replace it yourself, but I think that violates the 'mighty Job's' dictates.

Any device with non-standard proprietary cables (and charges a fortune for spares)...FAIL.
Yes...proprietary cables. Of course I mean that goofy iphone interface.
My BB on the otherhand, and many other phones can grab a charge of any common/standard USB type b to mini-b cable.(Or micro b for some of the latest phones)
Heck..I've charged my phone off my NUVI GPS power supply in the car! It uses a standard mini-b 5pin output.
An Iphone cable? Cheapest ive seen is about 20 bux online.

Any device that needs the 'blessing' of vendor to offer software...FAIL
Apple store. Thats it. Free or not, you have to use their services.
BB on the otherhand, you can just install raw .JAD files. Heck, I can install BB apps from my personal website.

Any device that has the ability to remotely wipe out apps that 'they feel' shouldnt be running on the device...FAIL.
You DO know about apples 'blacklist' right?

Jobs confirms iPhone app blacklist feature

Straight from the horse's mouth: Apple's iPhones do indeed have the capability to check for, and potentially defang, software that Apple deems unfit for the iPhone.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs confirmed the existence of the so-called "kill switch" capability, following last week's ruckus over early reports of just such a function. The word from Jobs was tucked at the bottom of a story in The Wall Street Journal about Apple's hot-as-a-pistol first month of sales at its App Store.
The intent behind the capability is high-minded, Jobs said. Apple would need it in case a malicious program inadvertently were to be distributed to iPhones via the App Store.

Perhaps some feel the need to have a NANNY watching their phone.
Me? Not so much.
Nor do I want a vendor to suddenly 'decide' some app 'isnt good for for me'.
Apple has already blacklisted 'non malicious' apps.

Any device inherently tied to a 'store'...FAIL.

Any device that uses only one carrier...with long term contracts...FAIL.
BB..well..ATT, nextel, sprint..etc..
Choose your phone..choose your carrier.
I like CHOICE.

Any device that has ghey silhouette commerials....FAIL.
Dumbazz ad campaigns dont impress me...Heheheh

I hope this clears up my earlier points.
