How about the fact that this adapter doesn't cost anywhere near $29 to make, they don't market it on TV and there is no reason to charge that much other than standard Apple high margins.  I can't wait to see what its going to cost me to get a 30 pin to 19 pin adapter so I can use my iPod and iPhone in my car when the next one arrives, of course that too will likely cost $29.
Not just look but also how the user interfaces and inputs data.  With the push towards touch enable devices being the consumer demand it was clear that (phones being rectangular) with flat surfaces and larger displays unless your Apple and you think 3.5" is still acceptable in the world of 4.5"+
Once again Apple's legal team takes shortcuts and alters things to suit their needs.  First off we all know that product designs can take 18-24 months from creation to launch and the I700 (silver phone lower right corner pre-iPhone) was a 2003 launch so saying it was a 2005 phone is way off.  They of course are selectively showing Samsung Windows Phones at the time which Android did not exist and thus their focus was dictated based on technology trends at the time....
If the yield rates are an issue it would be something that would be overcome in time, the question we ask next is how constrained will the next iPhone be at launch, will it impact international launches while the US gets it first (kind of nice getting the new toy at launch unlike the other phone makers).
Shouldn't it be a generally accepted idea that given the dependence on touchscreen devices that have no physical keyboards users will have difficulty being 100% accurate with the keyboard and therefore some level of predictive text input would be necessary?  To me it seems obvious that over time as the products have evolved for 10+ years of touch screen only devices that this would need to occur.
Apple is failing and falling down on the job when it comes to the App Store.  600,000 titles and its nearly impossible to discover, search for and actually purchase apps you really want.  When I got the first iPad I went crazy buying apps, 2 years later with my iPad 3 its harder and harder to find anything.  I hope their app discovery will improve and soon.   App (short for application, also known as software) is the generally accepted term by the common user today...
So does this mean the 9/12 rumor date will be pushed back, or are we looking at back orders for the next iPhone for the remainder of 2012?  I hope not I was looking forward to getting one on launch day.
If I still had my old PocketPC Phone from circa 2002 I would be able to recall if they did anything similar but once again the USPTO shows that obvious patents are awarded.  I say that based on the fact that all touch sceen devices existing LONG before the iPhone and there for all touch keyboards also existed long before the iPhone.  That said users were typing on them and needing to have more predictive text input.  Of course Apple once again took another companies idea...
I find it comical that Apple is blaming the economy for sluggish sales given how Apple products have been always proven recession proof, perhaps not.  Perhaps users are smart enough this time around to wait for the iP5 or iP6 or New iPhone or Next iPhone or whatever its going to be called due to the rumored NFC, LTE and larger screen.  Can we be blamed for NOT wanting to spend money on a model that is outdated in 3 months and be old and a year of obsolesence built into it.
Apple's method for calculating their IP value vs Samsungs FRAND IP value is highly distorted.  Without Samsungs IP for UMTS Apple is dead in the water on 3G technology and their devices go no where.  As for their high valuation for trade dress, well that is more hot air hype.   The valuation on trade dress should be based on the real world question of would you buy this Samsung product if it didn't have the following . . . curved corners, bezel around the screen,...
