Abdel Ibrahim, cherry-picking from Engadget commenters pooh-poohing the original iPhone keynote in 2007:
Apparently none of you guys realize how bad of an idea a
touch-screen is on a phone. I foresee some pretty obvious and
pretty major problems here.
I’ll be keeping my Samsung A707, thanks. It’s smaller, it’s got a
protected screen, and it’s got proper buttons. And it’s got all
the same features otherwise. (Oh, but it doesn’t run a bloatware
OS that was never designed for a phone.)
Color me massively disappointed.
