Pre-iPhone launch is getting crowded: Motorola/Google, Microsoft and now Amazon are all opening for Apple


When word hit at the end of July that Apple was planning an iPhone launch in September, the other big guys in the space all seemed to scurry. Microsoft’s Windows 8/Nokia event was planned for Sept. 5 in New York City and announced on Aug. 15.

It doesn’t matter. These three major players will get their few days of fame (if that), and then they will be totally washed out by the iPhone event on Sept. 12.
