Agreed totally on the iPod. I don't see how QiKchat is any more difficult to use than Facetime though, in fact, its easier, cos it works on 3G. Apple has a much larger user base that use Facetime for sure but does that count as innovation these days

"The iPhone continues to innovate, with... Facetime... game-changing technologies."


&nbsp;


Wait, what?


&nbsp;


QiK had video chat running long before Apple. Nokia was working with the technology even before that.


Sprint had it running on the Evo over cellular before Apple announced Facetime on Wi-Fi.


Apple makes a world-beating product but let's not give them credit for every technology advance that happens.

Are the others copying the iPhone or did the iPhone copy the others? &nbsp;The iPhone was not the first to have a touchscreen, video chat, WiFi, limited buttons , etc. &nbsp;If you really want to go with a phone that has very limited buttons; 1998/99 was the PDq, early 00's was the P-series from SE.

Is FaceTime easy? &nbsp;I always thought the STANDARDS based version for "GSM" was. &nbsp;You know, select the contact and then tell it voice or video call. &nbsp;The best part, they don't need a phone from the same manufacturer. &nbsp;What is better, manufacturer agnostic or one that is? &nbsp;The standards based is just as easy to use as the Apple version and the standards one works over 3G/4G and has since 2006 when the first commercially available phone was released. &nbsp;Where was the iPhone in 2006?
