Internet & Networking Has Apple succeeded in setting a new mobile Web-browsing paradigm? InformationWeek examines how the Palm Treo, BlackBerry Curve, and HTC Wing stack up against the iPhone. Unfortunately, this article completely snobs the UIQ and S60 Symbian smartphones.

Really?

I have a feeling that people, never using a good smartphone before and being lured into buying an expensive iPhone (or they got it for free from Apple), are writing articles and opinions like this. I've been using Nokia 7710 for three years. It has flash capability, wonderful screen resolution, word and excel like software, touchscreen, ... and a really good and reliable Opera browser. The iPhone is not revolutionary, it is not even "evolutionary", what it is is millions of dollars thrown into marketing and thousands of people believing what "gurus" have to say. Makes me sad.

I would say the iPhone was 'evolutionary', but only in the same way as text messages evolved to include pictures. ie just a logical progression rather than a ground breaking new interface.

That aside, the iPhone is just like a designer handbag - looks pretty but does much the same as any other handbag.
