Comment on "Do Consumers Want Indie iPhone Apps?"
by Dane Jensen — Jan 16
You can't develop code for iPod, either. Didn't seem to stop you from liking it and telling people about it.

True, but the ipod wasn't entering a well-established market with other mp3 players that already did have open APIs.

I think the main issue is that the Apple calls the iPhone a 'smartphone', when it so obviously runs against the core attribute of smartphones that set them apart from 'featurephones'.

If you look at the iPhone as just a featurephone, it's awesome, the pinnacle of featurephone evolution in every regard.

That is, except price. Apple's trying to price a really good featurephone as a truly amazing smartphone. Anyone care to imagine what it costs without a 2-year contract subsidy from Cingular?
