I feel I questioned Sappor's understanding of software, but I did not question Sappor's intellectual ability to understand.
I missed this, but I will comment on it none the less.
I understand how the software works but I do not think the iPhone will be the global phone dominator anymore than I think Nokia will. Nokia dominates now in terms of sheer numbers. They have more phones out there. Your comment that only Apple has the ability to do the seemingly impossible with the integration of a desktop OS on a mobile device. Sorry but I do not buy it. I am quite sure Apple, SE, Nokia, hell even Motorola have competent engineers that can do the seemingly impossible. Just because they didn't do it doesn't mean they can't. I can use your same argument as an example.
* The iPhone doesn't have 3G, so Apple can't do it.
* The iPhone doesn't make video calls, so Apple can't do it.
* The iPhone does not support OBEX or SyncML, so Apple can't do it.
* The iPhone does not support tethering via BT, so Apple can't do it.
* Apple doesn't sell BSS/OSS's, so they can't.
* Apple doesn't sell, design, or market basestations, so they can't
As you can see these are pretty weak arguments but they are in line with what you put forth. I have full confidence that Apple, Nokia, SE and others can do pretty much whatever they feel would be in the best interst of their bottom line.
