ICS is first launching on Samsung Nexus, even if deal isnt fully concluded Google wouldnt want their relationship ending with any partner especially Samsung as they've got a droid covering all price categories entry levels to flagships an more devices then any other. If anything Samsung's set to flex its muscle even more in 2012.

Look at any catalogue or walk into any store and you will see them- if you are with Telstra you will probably even own one not realizing it as they market ZTE as their own product as they have an exclusive deal with ZTE here.

ZTE is growing because they are competing with Nokia and releasing more attractive phones, with more features and better prices. I knew all these info long before because i work for the distributor who sells these phones to the carriers and to the stores. Nokia... watch out...

Once the Google Motorola Mobility deal comcluded, Samsung would lost the previlage to use 1st hand Android, that would be DOOM for Samsung, their BADA is plain "SUCKS"

So Long Samsung, Your Judgement day are close.

ZTE was behind the Orange san-fransisco here in UK and that sold like mad,,in fact they ran out of AMOLED screens for the model and they had to use LCD screens..I said 20 years ago that the western world would become poor and the likes of China and 3rd world countrys would become the super-powers and it sort of coming true..Nearly everything is made in China.

i'm not surprised with the news about LG, with a very poor customer service, i doubt if anyone will have a repeat purchase.
