    What made the iPhone the most successful mobile device? Apple has been launching amazing products for years and managed to enter an entire new industry to become its de facto leader virtually overnight. How could they do it?

    You can help answer this question by taking a short survey that is trying to correlate the success with several pre-launch events. Please follow this link:

    Everyone built up the hype for apple. All they had to do was take a phone and slap their name on it and the crowds would come running

    it's a success because it's the closest mobile phone technology to date that encompasses so much functionality. In addition, the combination of the iphone/touch and itunes is very hard to beat.

    and you can jailbreak it !!

    I agree, It wasn't a miracle, the idea behind it was just too brilliant of an idea not to give into.

    There were tocuhscreen phones even before that, and they weren't that popular, but here are some of the things I think made it so popular:

    -It's made by friggen Apple!
    -The Hype
    -The amazing touchscreen
    -Also an iPod, which also was/is insanely popular
    -Apps! Heck yeah!
    -Apple rules?
