EirePreneuer isn’t impressed at my iPhone/Nokia rant. Not at all! Have a read of his (I think it’s a he, I couldn’t find a name on the blog). He reckons I’ve thrown all my toys out the pram and I’ve got a persecuted mentality on this subject; fairly accurate, I think.
Apple has basically pulled off that wonderful trick of making a sow’s ear look like a silk purse. While Nokia et al still struggle to present their race horses as anything other than donkeys. But you can keep the pig (with lipstick), I’ll take the donkey.
I agree with some points made by EirePreneur and reader Chris (who commented below on the EirePreneur post).
I think I haven’t made my viewpoint or arguments very eloquently, partly because I deliberately kept the ‘diatribe’ as a stream of consciousness.
A one line summary of my position: I’m pleased Apple are innovating in the mobile industry and I’m disappointed that existing manufacturers haven’t done much more than add small enhancements over the years.
