you bought apple product just because of the cost ? WOW

i bought my droid not because its a flagship device, because i needed them to do things IOS cant do, better still if you dont want to spend 600$ on quadcore beast, you still have the coise to but dual core or even single core with ICS, on the other side people like you still bragging on things that purely irrational.

goodluck with your glass surface tough. coz im still using gorilla glass on my ICS rocking sgs2

And now just imagine when India and Africa join in the shift to smartphones.

Wow, 81% in China for Android? That's a heck of a stranglehold.
