Battle of the Buttons, Indeed

Michael Robertson, back in June 2007:

The current phone I carry is the Nokia e61i which compares very favorably with the iPhone. It’s shipping now and comes with 51 distinct physical buttons - the opposite design of the iPhone. Nokia is the #1 mobile phone manufacturer in the world and has sold more than twice as many phones in the most recent quarter as the 2nd largest company, Motorola. If buttons had no value why would Nokia use them?
