Ask anyone which mobile phone they prefer for responsiveness and dependability and comfort and nine times out of ten the Apple iPhone 4 will be the answer. It's no wonder, what with the iPhone's impressive spec list and track record, trampling the mobile phone industry in a little over three years since its initial release.
Look anywhere today and you'll surely see someone with an iPhone: texting their friends; updating their Facebook, their Twitter account; chatting over social networks whilst walking to work, staring awe-struck at the beautiful and rich touchscreen as they slide through homescreens, glide through photo albums.
—- Why Is It So Popular?
There are countless reasons why the Apple iPhone 4 is spreading rampant throughout Europe, Asia, America, Australia, England, everywhere. In 2007, when the iPhone made its first appearance in the mobile phone industry, many consumers were sceptical of the computer company's potential to produce a satisfactory device, thinking it was merely a business move to produce a short burst of income from unsuspecting customers, what with it being released around the holidays. Scepticism was proven wrong once sales flew off the charts in a mere few weeks, allowing Apple plenty of elbow room to advance and grow their technology and ideas. Never before had the mobile phone industry or the technology industry in general, seen such an advanced device readily available to consumers everywhere. Consumer-friendly touchscreens on mobiles were almost a mere myth at the time; creating a mobile with the same function and purpose as a Mac was unheard or thought of until then. 720p video and picture technology, over 10,000 apps, the most advanced touchscreen on the market, and several hundred million users make the Apple iPhone 4 a huge contender in any environment, offering consumers and Mac fans the ease and comfortability so desired in today's busy world . As social networks and the Internet grow, consumers expect their mobile phones to keep up, another factor of the iPhone's success.

With statistics such as that, it's no wonder why Apple's iPhone is the most respected and well-known mobile phone company on the market today.
