Funny..just saw apple advert pushing an iphone 4 on tv featuring the icloud and was going..how old is this. Thi si like so so 2 year ago. If iphone 5 does not come out, i see their profits going down. S2 and S3 are eating up the market and to my suprise the big Galaxy note is widely popular. All i hear around is how everybody wants one and the size is not a deterant but an enticer. I think if Samsung works more on this phone, they can compete with the ipad because the Gnote is poketable. guy who says what will happen when google switches off Android..are you mad. Why would they do that when they control nearly 60 % of the market now.

People think that giving them 20Mpx camera cost companies lots of money. But it is not true. Existing tech can be advanced easily. Apple pays loads of money to software developer to come up with new idea. Without iphone in 2007, no one has idea how to implement touch interface to mobile phones. Android or Wp7 are just skin but ios interface at its core. they try so hard to be different by putting buttons in different place, using cust. home screen etc. But multitouch, icon interfaces are pioneered by apple software developers

Finally! The truth is out! Samsung found to destroy evidence and internal emails. Inside it states that Google specifically warned Samsung not to copy Apple, and even Samsung Product Design Team admitted as such.

Lol eat that samsung fanboys.

all this fight very is stupid. is like mediocre owners of kia and hyundai are upset on the owners of cadillac and lincoln for throwing their money on useless cars instead of helping mondial hunger. for me,as an owner of PC since 1985,there is no other brand for me,just PC forever. i'm using Android phones because I have freedom to customize it the way I want and remove all the blot I don't need, Cowon players are perfect for me as music maniac - best sound hands down. and for phone + video recording I use Panasonic cameras that beat phones cameras any minute of the day and night.

After a year of buying an iPhone 4, Apple tells me it can't support Siri??? I'm sorry but Siri used to run on older iPhones when it was a third party software. My friend's Xperia Arc S is running ICS with all the features. Mind you this is a 1.7GHz single core device and the ROM was from Sony. Go figure.
