    I don't know how Monopoly laws apply, but would Monopoly laws apply if all the other major manufacturers were banned from U.S. sales because of patent infringements instead of being downright bought out by Apple's enormous piggy bank??

    If Monopoly laws wouldn't apply then it seems to me like Apple has a cunning strategy going. If you can't buy them.....ban them. I don't know....it's just a thought I had.

    Booyea!! I knew Android could not out beat the iPhone. Anything that can beat the iPhone is evil and somehow is cheating. The iPhone truly is unique.

    They only own the patent for a capacitive touch screen. Not just the touch screen. The Blackberry Storm has a touch screen but its not capacitive. Android phones do though.

I love Apple and IMO Android is an awful OS but I don't want to have to pay $1000 for the new Apple products, which might happen if they were the only company making smart phones

    Just a thought
    Android is not a smartphone company. It's a mobile OS company, of which many smartphone manufacturers utilize for their products.

    Apple makes a smartphones and has their own OS.
    RIM makes smartphones and has their own OS.
    Then there are many other companies who make smartphones and use the Android OS.
    And in a similar but not as widespread fashion, there are several companies making smartphones that use the Windows Mobile OS.

    And I believe that patent only applies to certain multi-touch gestures used when there's a "window within a window" so to speak, on a mobile browser showing a web page.

    If Android is banned - and RIM disappears then that just leaves iOS in the Smartphone OS market - unless Windows Phone can get a foothold.

    Maybe it's time for Apple to bail MS out and help them?

    Unique how? Because they have to pay Nokia royalties to use their features in iPhones? Because they basically ripped off the jailbreak community with alot of their iOS 5 features?

    Apple has become FAR from unique.

    Android OS is beating Apple.....that's probably why Apple is doing this right now.

    Not at all - just different. Some things better, but overall, not yet, IMHO.

    But it is competition, which should be allowed - but if this goes ahead, won't be.

    Well I did some googling and iPhone 4 came out in July 24th (or around) but the HTC phone (htc desire) came out a month and a half earlier so when htc desire came out, iPhone 3GS was out. That iPhone is like the 1st one or the second one. Hope that helped

    Hmm... Am I the only one who finds the iPhone 4 boring? The phone is old, we need something new, something refreshing. Don't expected with the next faster iPhone 5 nether, & iOS 5 is gonna suck too. NO themes, NO widgets NO flash. Apple is desperate to stop innovation from others since they themselves have NONE! Apple likes to bring new technology out slowly, so that they can make more money out of it. They can't stand it when they see phones coming out in 3D when they themselves had this planed for iPhone 10!!

    People forget so quickly that it was apple who revolutionized the mobile world in the first place. There were smartphones before the iPhone, but none you could actually use easily. While I would hate to see no competition for apple, they have every right to patten their innovations. And by the way, have fun with your plastic HTC. I'll stick with my iPhone 4 with iOS 5.

    I swear are people never satisfied??? The whole reason for jailbreaking is to do things with the phone, add features, etc. that Apple does not (or did not) allow. And now when Apple does add some of these features, people complain that they're "ripping off" the jailbreak community.

    In my experience, while many JB apps and hacks can be quite useful, I'd much rather have the same feature integrated into the stock iOS rather than hacked to add it on later. It just works better that way.

    My JB 3GS on 4.3.3 STILL has memory and crashing problems just like it did on 4.0.1. which my wife's non-JB 3GS does not have.
