What is this obsession with the iphone? 80% of the phones today use Symbian and java. Why do we even talk about competition with the iphone. The iphone is a niche for Apple fans. Enough with all that Apple fanboyings. It's all about Symbian and Android (because the news is about Android), so please stop talking about the iphone that has maybe 0.5% of market share. Why don't we talk about openMoko as well? did Jesus Christ even have an iPhone?
