> In reply to androidfan @ 2012-07-23 16:18 from 4rqj - click to readwell, i think blackberry is losing market because, the people who just wanted to be "in" for using a blackberry are gone, because there are newer phones with much more to play with(yes "play with", i own a couple of android and apple gadgets and the best part of them are the apps to play with)

and those left are those who actually need the BBM service for their businesses, office works, and other corporate stuff, ooor, just like the serious solid look of a blackberry, well, for a regular guy like me, i never found the need to be in touch non-stop with my email(i mean, i do have a phone for people to text and call me), i'm a kid inside, and love playing with stuff

Nobody is twisting your arm to buy an Apple phone or any other phone. Just choose which one suits you best and gives the best connections, calls, camera, internet and so on. Oh, you already have. Congratulations! Hope you enjoy using it and stop complaining about the other guy's phone.

who cares about overflowing landfills, We need to discard all iPhone accessories. That way we make more $ during the next few financial reporting periods.

Seriously, standardization of device interfaces is in all consumers interest. insert favorite rant against US business decision making.

The Next iPhone looks to be a nice evolution of the product. Should of gone with a longer screen ... 4.1" is launching a product generation behind.

Lol, they`re gonna make an adapter for the old accessoires and sell it for 25 dollars. 24 dollars per adapter(i don`t think they pay those chinese companies any more than 1$), 30 million iphone sales so apple makes 720 million dollars just by changing the connector.

let's get one thing straight : I'm an android fan/user and I have an iPod Touch.

now , IMHO I think Apple only wants to make their devices smaller by putting this new smaller connector and their new Nano-SIM design , or maybe they want to provide extra space for a bigger battery ( we all know all smart devices need it ) and a bigger display while making it thinner , surely they will provide an adapter for older accessories , then again ,Apple fans didn't mind the previous restrictions , so why mind them now ????
