PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jobs called Android a 'stolen product', but theft can be a tricky concept when talking about innovation. The iPhone didn't emerge fully formed from Jobs's head. Rather, it represented the culmination of incremental innovation over decades - much of which occurred outside of Cupertino." Nothing particularly new in there for regular OSNews readers, but still handy to have it in one place.

How did the 2007 version (both products release year) of Android and iOS compare?
Apple was a product that came from a well known cult brand.
Android came almost from nowhere.
The brand then had no hype value.

The first wave of Android phones were like the first wave of Android tablets... good on features, bad on polish. Generally, it takes the copycats at least one generation to get the 'fit and finish' right. In the case of MS, it took about 15 years with Windows ;) hehe
