For 3 years Iphones were only offered by 1 x carrier in the US (AT&T) and they outsold every brand. Now, iphone is offered at AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon and they are being outsold in the US by HTC. So people arguing that iphone only makes 1 x phone and that's why they are being outsold is a theory that has been proven wrong based on the fact that they had a higher percentage of sales when they were only offered by 1 x carrier. Or, Apple could just make another phone and all of you who keep making excuses for Apple could just STFU. Apple has every right to make as many phones as they want. But, giving customers choices and options isn't their goal. Creating a bunch of clones who are carrying exact same device is.
