Windows Mobile vs iPhone or What did Apple invented?

A lot of noise is going around the new tech. miracle called iPhone, announced by Apple.

Some commercial bla bla from their site:

Phone combines three amazing products — a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, maps, and searching — into one small and lightweight handheld device.

Hey, I had all these features from my first Windows Mobile 2003!
May be the multi-touch display deserves credits (I hate the stylus stuff) , but let's wait the users to tell their words...

Check out the differences between Windows Mobile and this outstanding tech.toy :)
iPhone vs Windows Mobile

Something strange about the Apple media presence:
- Apple released iPod
everybody says it was an outstanding innovation.
as far as I know the PJB-100 is the first commercially sold portable player developed by Compac and marketed by HanGo Electronics Co., Ltd.

- Apple released iPhone
again a miracle , again an innovation
as far as I know "some" of these features were on the market for quite some time :)
Remember?The first idea for multi-touch display is not of Apple.. may be

- Microsoft released Vista
a lot of people claimed that MS stole this and that(search bar, gadgets, etc.). In other words Vista is not an innovation.

I'm starting to think that the only one innovation developed by Apple is a method to manipulate the media and public opinion .. may be Apple (not Edward Bernays) invented PR.

Anyway, the innovation in this business is not only about putting a single never-seen piece in the users' hands. It is more about getting a lot of new small precious pieces together and place it in the hands of the right user...
