I agree, although think if they had one not long after the iPhone launched, a lot of people would have bought them because of brand loyalty.

If you already had a Nokia your default choice was usually a new Nokia. And they had a pretty strong brand at the time (and 70-80% market share?).

This is true. I can remember waiting for a Nokia android device / a good touchscreen device with an app market before I got my first android. At that point I'd only really owned Nokia's and loved the reliability of them, but they just took far too long to come out with anything that could compete.
