- This week I heard the Curve beat out the iPhone for the number one selling phone in the country,This got me thinking. With Apple only releasing 1 iPhone a year,And RIM releasing many Blackberry' on every network year round. Can the iPhone maintain it's popularity? I had an iPhone for over a year ,Finally left it because it lacks some of the most basic features you would expect with a smart phone. If Apple intends on releasing only one iPhone a year and only being available on one network. I think your going to see more people like myself who leave the iPhone looking for something better.05-10-09 07:44 PM
- The Curve is buy one - get one on Verizon. Of course it beat out the iPhone. Regardless of what some people say, we need competition from Apple and others to push the envelope. We, in turn, win with new innovations. You may see people leave the iPhone for other phones, but millions left other phones for the iPhone too.05-10-09 08:00 PM
- I've had my iPod Touch for about a year and a half now, and still can't stand typing on it. Make way too many mistake and takes forever to type out an email. I type 38 wpm on my Bold. I even tried the touch Storm and it sucks too. I find that even harder than the iPod Touch because of the multi-tap and actually having to push the screen. Sorry guys...but physical touch keyboards are the way to go. Touch is horrible on such a small screen.05-10-09 08:22 PM
- DuviRetired ModeratorI don't see how it's losing at all actually... I only see us consumers winning.
The iPhone is $199/$299 if eligible. $399/$499 if you can get an early upgrade and forgot the no commitment pricing.
The Curve not only has BOGO from Verizon, but on AT&T, they are free! (if you have discounts being applied to your account). You have four major carriers (as well as several little ones) and three types of Curves (8310/8320/8330) with a lot of people holding out for the new iPhone, I would expect to see the Curve being on top.05-10-09 08:41 PM
