Google is really the main threat out there. The iphone doesnt have a free gps nor will Microsofts phone. Even though Microsofts layout looks really good i still wouldnt buy it for that reason.

I hear the new OS has a ton of new programming api's too...which will probably spark lots of development.
However, I'm not interested in getting Aids...cough...cough, I mean iAds...

It will be fun to make fun of all the Aids, er, iAds victims for not choosing a safe phone partner....heh.

So the Iphone is going to get what the Android OS had when it was born. I get the feeling that Android is getting Flash long before Iphone though.

Android already has a form of flash, for playing YouTube videos. When I've looked at installed apps/plugins/whatever there's a flash thing that's installed...

That's only for youtube. It wont let you play videos from hulu or anywhere else. And it doesn't let you enjoy Flash websites like the StarTrekMovie.com website. So it may as well as not have flash at all.

I'm sure Apple had reasons for why it wasn't released from the start on the iPhone 3GS and the sorts. And besides, if multi-tasking was the deciding factor for many people (for which it seems like everyone is complaining about) then how is the iPhone taking up the market by storm?

Last quarter, only android and rim (blackberry) incresed in market share.  MS and Apple went down in the US smartphone market.  Apple only lost like .2% or something insignificant, but compared to androids 200% growth and MS's 15% loss, you can't really say apple is "Taking the market by storm" anymore.  They seem to (at least last quarter) to have flatlined in the phone market.  However, I could see a new OS sparking new interest and giving them more growth again.  I like the iphone, I just don't like at&t (bad reception in my area, my girlfriend has at&t...) and I am not exactly happy with the way apple's store works.  Its gonna be interesting to see what happens with the new OS.

You also have to remember that people who own iPhones are stuck in 2 year contracts, so don't expect to see much of a change on a yearly basis. You're going to see change bi-yearly bases upon the last iPhone release (cause that's when a large bulk of users upgrade and renew their contracts).

Most people who are unhappy with their iPhones or service and want to swtich to another phone/carrier are unwilling to pay the termination fees and will simply wait it out. That's when it's a good time to look at the numbers and see how many people are running from Apple as fast as they can.

I didn't think about that.  Really good point.  I had more to say but the spam filter won't let me say anything....

 "... then how is the iPhone taking up the market by storm?"

 Because anything created by Apple is THE best thing ever! Doesn't matter if it's crap, missing features that every other product has, costs a million times more than the competition, or does nothing at all! If it's got the Apple logo, and is an iSomething, Mactards will buy it in droves...

So let me get this straight. Apple has released an OS that basically catches up on the rest of the mobile market, and adds just one thing, ads on your phone? I'll pass, I'm not that dumb.

iAds is not an advertising platform for the phone itself; it simply allows developers to implement advertisements in their apps. Its not like you'll see "Netflix" logos all over your home screen.

I've had multitasking for a year and a half on my jailbroken 2G.  This is planned obsolesence crapola on Apple's part.

 And this surprises you?

With the way apple loves to sue people, I'm guessing it wont be long before we see Microsoft turn the tables and sue apple for making a mobile OS that can multi-task and runs with the concept of 'folders'.

 Yeah, other mobile OS's do the same thing, but Apple and Microsoft have a special 'love' for suing eachother.

I wonder if the lawsuit is already in the works?

 Ya, I really want to know what all the Mactards say about iAds

And thats why im going to get a Windows phone 7 series!

Why? So that way you can have the first gen iPhone experience with no multitasking or copy and paste? Android is pretty much the only worthwhile smartphone OS and will be for awhile until Microsoft can get their Windows Phone Series 7 up to snuff.

So lessee... I have to buy the phone, sign a contract, pay a stupid amount of money every month to use it, AND now will have to deal with pop up ads that can interrupt anything I'm doing?

So when iAss goes out looking for a new ad, who exactly pays for that airtime??? I'm thinking it's gonna be US.

I'm waiting for the zealots to defend the iAds.

Only someone so brainwashed would bask in the 'glory' of advertisements on your smartphone.

You know, the smartphone that you paid for that runs on a network that you pay for access to and runs applications that you pay for.
