    This going to create a fold in space time leading back to a alternative Galaxy where all the phones are recalled due to spontaneous combustion.

    On the one hand, someone has to adopt it else they'll not develop the better subsequent gens...
    On the other hand, I've had plenty of tech where the 1st gen was always the best one, and subsequent gens suffered with feature creep, quality drop and so on.
