Apple caught the cell phone market by surprise and now all major phone makers are aggressively developing phones to compete against the iPhone.

DigiTimes heard Taiwanese phone makers like Asus, BenQ, Compal and Arima are all developing iPhone-like products. Their sources informed them that the first product from Asus will be available in the first half of next year.

These phones will use the Windows Mobile platform and will have 3G and GPS functionality.

Besides Taiwanese players, international phone makers like Nokia, Samsung and LG are also likely going to launch iPhone-like cell phones in 2008. Nokia is expected to use a Symbian-based platform while Samsung will either use Windows Mobile or Symbian.
