ive tried the sprint instinct, the verizon voyager, the HTC (google phone), ppc-6700. At the then of the day, they are sluggish and very unresponsive. NOTHING COMPARES TO THE IPHONE. Ive had it since Feb, and all the phones ive mentioned are just ripoffs to the IPhone. Now the Zune phone? Who knows. Maybe DRM issue might be a little less a pain. Maybe it will support multitouch? Not really sure yet. If the zune phone follows the same pattern as the phones ive mentioned, then it will be another bad attempt at trying to copy the iphone. Hopefully it will be more responsive then the Iphone competitors. The IPhone could use a real challenger. Well see.
how is the ppc-6700 a ripoff of the iphone when it came out nearly 2 years before the iphone?
also, i wouldnt call the google phone an iphone ripoff, as like the 6700 (and 6800) its simply based on what HTC has been doing for years
the new HTC touch-series phones (especially the touch diamond and touch pro) definitely have iphone-inspired designs, but i wouldnt call them rip-offs (if you call touchflo a ripoff of the iphone OS i would wonder how familiar you are with either system)
as for the instinct and voyager, yes, these are blatant attempts to create a "poor-mans man's iphone" so i would certainly call them ripoffs
sorry for the OT rant, but when people seem to think anything with a touchscreen is an iphone ripoff it kindof peeves me
as for the zune phone, if they are making one it will almost certainly be an iphone clone, which means you couldnt pay me to use it either
