I did not suggest jailbreaking in response to your original question about a different OS. If you wanted to "dumb Linux on it", I suggested an Android device.
i said, apple does not give the usb butcher boot loader for the phone, nor do they give the info for the hardware, the device you own, the os is leased from apple and is in full control, if its my device, i should have everything i need with purchase of the device to do what i wish if i do not wish to be bound to itunes. period.
i said this due to the fact when you purchase a brand new iphone it cannot be used unless it is synced to a pc with itunes first!
i can go buy a blackberry, a htc winmobile, heck even an android phone, and even a blackberry, and out of the box, with a physical connection to a pc, the phone will function.
i really dont care to argue the argument vs jailbreak vs non. i dont really care about the iphone, what i was implying is that is the only device, until you purchase it open it, and then find out!
apple has the shittiest disclosure ever. but w/e dont really care.
as for touch screen phones sell, i still think its a fad, most are horrible, most are resistive and pocket dial worst then keys and with that said navigation on them is even worst.
how many phone actually have a fluent touch interface as an iphone? lol none?
now lets move past our little apple argument and move on to the subject, touchscreens.
apple touch interface is if not the best one of the best interfaces, its responsive little errors but very very usable. imo they did an amazing job on the interface.
now take htc, nokia, samsung, lol motocrapola, they dont come close to it, most are still horrible to use, clunky, and irritating.
htc market share grew, yay, they are still in with "others" which would be the other mfg less nokia, which i could be wrong is losing money per year not gaining profits.
even with meamo, which is linux kernel based os like android. and a full touch screen. i think it even has a capacitive screen.
hd2 was still as horrible to use as prior winmobile devices, i like the solid build htc has, i dont like the clucky ness of touchflow, the touch ui etc.
like i said less it says apple, touch screen are horrible, they really dont sell, alot get returned with in even the first 30 days.
most mfg unlike apple just wish or here have a touchscreen phone, but the user experience is horrible. they are again clunky.
