Apple is a real innovator in digital music in terms of
understanding what the market really needs.
Steve Jobs has a personal blog:

I think you did the right investment. After getting a very
interesting market share in high value camera phones now
they are moving to the higher end.
LG looks like is going to enter the high-end market with
a new business oriented phone based on Symbian
that looks like a different version of SC8000.
This phone will compete directly with Series 60 based
phones and UIQ P800-P900.
This is a very good move as Symbian is getting popular
in EU thanks to a good support of software developers
and very well designed mobile-focused features.
Completing the product line, something that no JP
based producer has been able to achieve, will give a serious opportunity
to gain more markets share.
