Care for some history?
So, lets take this whole smartphone business back a few years ...
We have been waiting and waiting for iPhone killers, every new smartphone that came out at the time got dismissed by the press and users.
Now, they have all copied iphone to the pixel, I can no longer tell which is which from a plain photo, if I blacken out the brand. Remember, back then, smartphones all looked like Blackberries, now, they all look like iphones.
You can argue all you want, this is Apple vs soviets, Tu-144 style.
And don't get me started on tabs, they have been around in different form factors for over 10 years, yet, only Apple's design made a dent in PC sales, and see the same fate. The competitor's devices all look the same.
Apple present a crappy defense, have a whack of invalid patents, have merged several known technologies into new technologies and patented the result, lock users in (although iTunes songs play on any device, now), have more lawyers than developers, agreed, but still, their innovations have been used by everyone.
I'll get an Android phone, because it is just like an iphone, and lets me chose my own music (I play and record my music) for my alarm.
