But it's not as if these people don't know that the iPhone exists.
You've already lost the customers that care only about the coolness
factor and that don't care about capabilities.
It's a chance to cut through all the hype over the iPhone and bring a
dose of reality to the comparison. How many people know about the iPhone
limitations in terms of editing documents? How many people know that the
iPhone lacks voice dialing? How many people know that the iPhone browser
is so limited?
