Noted without comment: iPhone vs. Windows PDA
~ 27 November 2007 ~
A letter to the editor from Eagle Bear Morgan of Seattle, in response to Time Magazine’s November 12 U.S. issue, “The Best Inventions Of the Year”:
In naming the iPhone the best invention of 2007, you forgot about Windows-based PDA phones. They’ve been out for years. Touch interface? Big deal. As you noted, it’s been done before. A miniaturized operating system? Done. Windows-based phones are everything the iPhone is and more. The phones can text, MMS, e-mail (through POP, IMAP, Exchange), surf the real Web at broadband speed on EVDO networks and open, edit and save documents. The iPhone is for kids. Windows Mobile PDA phones are for adults who need to do real work.
