The biggest problem with the iClones is their shoddy interface. Particularly the SPEED and responsiveness of the interface is often abysmal. Samsung's mp3 players and other phones plagued by this same issue. It's just not as snappy and fluid as the iPhone.

When you add in the massive developer community that is forming around the iPhone it's going to be incredibly difficult for a lot of these guys to out-iPhone the iPhone. Be like RIM and do your own thing.

Though I guess subscribers to Sprint DO need something to keep them happy.
