I have 2 smartphones with unlimited data, unlimited messaging, and more talk time than I need for a Total of ~$67/month, including taxes, while ONE iPhone with comparable setup is ~$100/month. People who are looking at the upfront cost for the handset are barely seeing the tip of the iceberg of what it will cost them to “be iphone cool”.

It always has been about the software. Steve himself said that what he wanted was not some stripped down operating system that loaded specially designed web pages for a smartphpne but the full browser experience. The heart of the iPhone is what runs ALL Apple computers. Think about it. A complete operating system (now coming up to the 6th version of OS 10) that is utterly stable, vastly expandable, completely safe and used by millions on their laptops and desktops. OK so you can’t play a DVD on the iPhone but you can do virtually everything else. Why? because you can do it on an Apple computer already. Windows mobile, symbian etc are operating systems that were created for smartphones adding this and then that while trying to keep your web experience simple and curtailed. Apple blew that away by putting the ease of use of the most intuitive operating system that has been around for decades onto a stylish mini computer that also makes calls
