Why people are thrilled by the technically outdated and uncreative iPhone

Paul hit the nail on the head with his comment on my previous iPhone post. Having traveled to Europe I agree with what he had to say:

I’m not saying people should get a nokia and not an iphone, My point is that for the features the iphone has, its price is ridiculously high and with that price you can get much much better products as the iphone with quality camera, camcorder, built in GPS, same/better music quality, etc. The iphone would be a good solution if it’s price was cut to 1/3 of its current price and even less. If the iphone wasn’t from apple, no one would even look at it, but since it’s from apple and apple is cool, the iphone is great and is worth whatever price they put on it, even if it’s a total rip off, and everything else from everyone else is crap. And I’m saying this as a cell phone expert, I switch phones every 3 months and have had many phones from different manufacturers and write reviews.

But one thing you have to remember is that, Motorola has been the dominant manufacturer in north America and Nokia and Sony Ericsson haven’t had much investment in Canada, and only up to a couple of months before the SE k790 was brought in by rogers, all the phones by all the carriers were low-end feature less products and all the Good high-end phones were for the Europeans and Asians, and it is still this way more or so, so the iphone will leave a good impression to people who have been carying crap phones from Fido, Rogers, Telus and Bell over the years and have no idea what’s going on on the other side of the world.

    You’re absolutely right. The phones we have here are old models in Europe & Asia.

    And it’s not only the phones we get that are at least 5 years behind Europe and 10 years behind Japan, the matters are way worst than that! Just read this article; here is the heading:

    Heading: Canada worse than 3rd world countries when it comes to data mobile access.

    here is a quote from it

    “Canadian carriers lag substantially in every category”

    Judge for your self.
