Apple In a move that should surprise nobody, Apple has sort-of admitted to iPhone antenna problems in their press conference this morning, claiming it affects a small number of users, but they claim to be working hard to fix the problems that they have confirmed. They've offered free bumpers (that have until now been a $30 accessory) to all iPhone buyers, and are offering to waive any restocking fees for anyone who wants to return their iPhone 4. Whether or not there's going to be a hardware fix for future iPhones, Steve Jobs says he doesn't know yet whether that will happen.

Well everyone is entitled to their choices and if a feature phone suits you well you obviously have no problem. But as with everything, you can't know what you're missing if you don't have first hand experience.

For example, with my smart phone I have an internet connection, a browser, e-mail, IM, an office suite, I can ssh anywhere, GPS, the wolfram app, plenty of games etc. Plus all the usual phone stuff (phone, sms, mms). If you don't need any of these or if you're carrying a net/notebook all the time, chances are you don't need a smart phone. But asking what everyone seems to be enjoying is a bit silly. Smart phones have a lot more useful stuff than feature phones.
