The iphone sales are impressive and the iphone itself is impressive however the point was its not the only impressive smartphone and not all other phones are due to fail or fall behind the iphone. Which is of course what Quadra says about everything that isn't made by Apple. No one is denying the success of Apple or the iPhone however that doesn't mean that everything else is doomed to fail.
Hmm. I dont recall him implying "everything else is doomed to fail. In fact, as I recall he is one of the many posters here that understand that know that Apples business model means lower unit sales and that the market can bare multiple products all thriving in their respective market segments.
I think its excessive, but the substations for these phones are getting excessive, too. Personally, Id rather buy it outright, but if my data plan is the same regardless it makes no sense. Next year Ill be outside the country often so I may just go with an unlocked iPhone with a month to month plan.
