 You want specifics? How about the time you claimed to have interviewed Steve Jobs?  Or how this Maemo (the predecessor to Tizen) powered internet tablet is in fact not a tablet but a netbook:   I love you get so worked up about people assassinating your character when you spend so must effort doing it to other people. Someone calls you out on your bullshit and you get incredibly defensive.  Also, please learn how to use quotation marks.
Publicly they might have been dismissive but it was panic stations internally. The day that the iPhone was announced, all existing road maps went out of the window.
I've worked in the smartphone industry for over 14 years. Every time I read something about the pre-iPhone smartphone industry written by DED, I find it riddled with factual inaccuracies. When I've pointed these inaccuracies out in the past, DED gets very defensive and has tried to argue that up is down or that red is blue.

 Don't blame the EU. The British ASA has led the charge on this one. 
 It's mostly people who've come over from Nokia.
 The game has changed. Enterprise simply isn't as important as it once was. 
I remember when the original iPhone was announced. All of the Windows Mobile blogs proclaimed that it would never be a success since it wasn't focused on enterprise users. They were wrong.   Enterprise doesn't matter anymore. Consumers drive demand.    That hasn't changed since the original iPhone. Quite the opposite - the growing trend of BYOD is only decreasing the relevance of enterprise to a device's success. That's why the analytics aren't that impressed by the...
