Apple redefined what a smartphone should be. Do you really think the market would be flooded with capasitive touchscreen phones with minimal physical buttons if it was not for Apple? Apple's iOS is still the most rock solid and polished mobile OS on the market.
Here's a perfect example of why Android still has a long ways to catch up: http://jawcl.com/post/10648454899/whats-wrong-with-android
People can brag about screen sizes and specs all you want, but if they can't fix issues like these across all product lines they will continue to be out shined by Apple. The user experience is key.
I still think the only company doing it right besides Apple is Microsoft. Windows Mobile 7 is a great OS. It's just been held back by bad marketing, app selection and limited market share.
