"Who will want a pale imitation when they could have the original?"

I'd imagine it's the people who want a cheaper option that does most of the things an iPhone does and don't mind the lack of polish.

And the people who think the pale imitation's lack of software restrictions is far more important than any amount of polish.

As an Android user I wouldn't disagree with you; I was just trying to present an example which the article's author wouldn't feel the need to argue about (software restrictions is a holy war topic, price probably isn't :) ).

Or the people who want an option that does more and would rather cut their own feet off than use iTunes. Surely there's more than just me.
