Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

I agree - I would be hard pushed to buy a phone or MP3 player that didn't support mass storage, and I was very disappointed that Nikon dropped mass storage support on some of their SLR cameras. They still have PTP but that's not quite as useful.

As for phones, I like the Symbian system: connect USB to the phone and you get 4 options: Mass Storage, PTP, PC Suite (for their proprietary software) and tether. Nice!
