Apple didn't invent the smartphone, touch screen, etc. They made one later and had better marketing.

Also, there's plenty of boycotts\buycotts among Freepers because of a company's liberal or conservative leanings.
In your mind that makes anyone a liberal??
Using this logic, anyone who buys Apple is a liberal.
You sure you're on the right forum?

” you wouldn't by anything that resembles or functions like an iPhone — which they all aim to do.”

You didn't see the latest iPhone, did you?
They're starting to mimic Android features and calls them new. Apple is popular, which is why they're expensive, but people are catching on to the shortcomings.

Want to see what Google envisioned an Android phone looking like before the iPhone?

Looks like someone was aiming to copy the market leader, the RIM Blackberry. Then the iPhone came out, and the first Android phone to hit the market a year later looked like this:

That's all Android is, a copy of those who actually innovated, dangling a free OS to handset manufacturers so Google can make money on the back-end.

Apple is popular, which is why they're expensive, but people are catching on to the shortcomings.

iPhones cost about the same as high-end Android phones. I had an Android for two years, dumped it for an iPhone. No way am I going back.
