Default Re: Samsung phones outselling Apple

I kinda like the sense 3.0 features, the weather for one is quite impressive when compared to others. I think if you played with my phone for an hour you would agree that sense 3.0 has some pretty nice features that run flawlessly. I have never...ever..seen any unresponsiveness on my HTC DHD running Android Revolution HD 6.3.2 rom. Even at stock clocks without the Daemon controller the performance is excellent. I have tried the exact same rom without sense and have to say i flashed back to sense after about an hour...

You're referring to capacitive touch screens (which don't work with a fine point stylus and support multi-touch) and no, apple wasn't the first here. Many windows phones and blackberries had this before apple.

You mean like pinch to zoom? Actually microsoft had that before apple. The "Microsoft Surface" was doing pretty much all of the same gestures the iphone did back in 2005, two years before iphone. It didn't see commercial release until 2008 (a year after the iphone) however microsoft made several tech demos back in 2005.

Most of those gestures were actually invented in 1991.

In fact even before microsoft was "diamondtouch" back in 2001

Also remember how apple got a patent for multitouch? Well it turns out that particular patent was invalidated, because somebody else had it first, namely a company called Elan who produced their own multitouch product, and they sued apple and now apple pays them licensing fees:

Apple did transform the Tablet and Smart Phone market. If you can't see this, then you're living in a dream world.

But I guess you hate Apple so much that you can't see that.

And nice job ignoring the prototype and development phase of iOS/iPhone in your timeline. Haters gonna hate lol
Something tells me iphone wasn't in development back in 2001 (you know, when multitouch gestures were first on the commercial market.) Also did you know Android began development in 2005?
