how is the ppc-6700 a ripoff of the iphone when it came out nearly 2 years before the iphone?
while yes u are right about the ppc-6700 (i was dumb enough to spend 500 bucks on it), i didnt mean that phone was a ripoff (though i should have stated that), i was implying that it was sprints king at the time. It was a very popular touch screen at the time. Everyone had em. Too bad it never worked right. You would always have to align the stylus. It would freeze and what not. I was just comparing it to the IPhone. The HTC is nice dont get me wrong, but my boss has it and he said and i quote, "dude i love the google phone, but this still cant touch the iphone". The IPhone really took the touch screen to the next level like it or not. They made it so mainstream that now everyone has one. The Iphone is like no other. Why someone wouldnt like it I dont know. I mean it doesnt freeze, the multitouch is just outstanding, and tons of cool apps. Albeit mine is jailbroken, that makes it even more flexible. Just my opinion though.
I guess it depends on how you determine if it is a flop or not.
The Zune is a solid piece of hardware that exceeds an Ipod in so many ways, if that makes it a flop, then so be it.
I agree, the zune, while does have its issues, mainly with the DRM, the zune is an excellent mp3 player. The big advantage Id give it over the Ipod is the fact that it has an FM tuner. The HDD space is also a big plus. End of the day, Ipod or zune you really cant go wrong.
