iPhone groan is good for everyone

So yes, I know you should take Twitter and blog chatter with a grain of salt, but the announcement of the iPhone 4S is being greeted with a lot of groaning. Apple stock is even getting beat up, which is stupid because you know they'll break all previous sales records with it anyway.

It's going to keep getting harder for Apple to make these quantum leaps with phones, which is good because it gives competition a chance to catch up. I'm not ashamed to say that I'm still a Windows Phone fan, even since leaving The Empire, and Mango combined with some of the new hardware coming out makes for a sweet product. Will be interested to see what Nokia brings out in the next couple of months, too.

We were talking about this at dinner the other day, and it's amazing how we kind of take smart phones for granted now. It's good that the iPhone isn't the only viable product as well, because good choices are so critical for bigger picture of advancement.

Now if the other players could just get their tablet stuff together...
