I looked it up. I guess it depends on what you call 'born', but the first iPhone came out in June 2007 and the first Android phone came out in September 2008.

CM: The size of the LPDDR3 is 2GB and it features two DRAM die within the package in a stacked architecture. It is in a PoP orientation with the Octa processor. There is very little gap between the two packages as we had to decap both at the same time to salvage the die.

"Even with a locked bootloader you have access to non-approved apps or can write your own." can write your own app in iphone also.. "Futher, the Android modding community is very strong. It shouldn't be long before there's an exploit to allow root and custom ROM's." which is equivalent to doing jailbreak in iOS, afterwhich you can do most of the same stuff. And the iOS JBing community is pretty strong also.

Comparing IOS with an Android phone with locked bootloader is like comparing Apples to Oranges. Even with a locked bootloader you have access to non-approved apps or can write your own. Try to do that with an Iphone that hasn't been jailbroken. Futher, the Android modding community is very strong. It shouldn't be long before there's an exploit to allow root and custom ROM's. My Droid Bionic also has a locked bootloader, but I was able to play arround with ICS and JB custom ROM's well before they released an official version.

Well, they had a touch phone on Korean market before iPhone. The os and overall software side was quite bad, though. S/W had been always a poor side of Samsung Mobile. Then Google came along...

So true. If not for Apple Samsung would be throwing Octa cores in clam shell phones

That is correct. The original Google mantra of the "open" Android system has since essentially been closed by the US carriers as far as the consumer is concerned. The maintenance of the original galaxy S phones were discontinued years ago, yet I had the most recent Android jelly bean on my 3 year old phone simply because it was flashable and therefore self-serviceable. Now I've lost hot spot, flashability, and some other carrier crippled features as a consequence of "upgrading".

Is the net effect then that a Samsung phone is not really "open" or with choice? The difference between Samsung and Apple has dropped to near zero if so.
