What we did not know about iphone

By far the most impressive Story about iPhone, the most loved phone mankind had ever seen.
Fred Vogelstein form has written a 4 page story about iPhone and i liked the way he address this: "How the iPhone Blew Up the Wireless Industry"

I do agree on this point :

For decades, wireless carriers have treated manufacturers like serfs, using access to their networks as leverage to dictate what phones will get made, how much they will cost, and what features will be available on them. Handsets were viewed largely as cheap, disposable lures, massively subsidized to snare subscribers and lock them into using the carriers' proprietary services. But the iPhone upsets that balance of power. Carriers are learning that the right phone — even a pricey one — can win customers and bring in revenue. Now, in the pursuit of an Apple-like contract, every manufacturer is racing to create a phone that consumers will love, instead of one that the carriers approve of."

Clearly, iPhone has made US buyers to think about the mobile phones as a smart stylish device rather than a junk box they need to carry to be able to talk :)
