As I have stated elsewhere, Win 8 has the potential to be a game changer, if MS finally gets it right and does not deliver a faulty product. Android will loose market share towards the end of this year as both OS and Win 8 devices are released. I am really curious about Win 8, not that I am a great MS fan by any means, but it is likely to finally get a genuine notebook replacement with a Win 8 Tablet, and have that reconciled immediately with a Win 8 mobile phone. I would not bother to purchase a Android mobile such as SIII or even a new iPhone until Win 8 has prove to be great or a disappointment. If it is great, then Android devices are in a serious problem from a marketing perspective, and may in fact actually assist Win 8 in gaining market share, in the same way Apple actually assisted Android to gain market share. Really interesting times ahead and may be finally some decent software to match the hardware grunt.

Nobody beats Nokia in mobile phone when it comes to call quality, signal reception, camera, audio recording and the screen outdoor visibility. They have also have great build quality.

Profits from the South Korean firm's telecoms division, announced on Friday, more than doubled from a year ago to a record 2.5 trillion won ($2.2 billion) and accounted for 60 percent of Samsung's total profit, offsetting a plunge in earnings from its bread-and-butter memory chips.

Shipments of smartphones jumped 44 percent from the preceding quarter to 27.8 million units, up nearly four times from a year ago, according to research firm Strategy Analytics.

Apple's iPhone sales shrank by 16 percent to 17.1 million units in the third quarter. Samsung had 23.8 percent of the global smartphone market in the third quarter, 9 points higher than Apple. Samsung's flagship Galaxy line of products is powered by Google's (GOOG.O) Android software.

So I think there is quite alot of people who is not quite so bored with Android yet.

In answer to your post that Samsung has copied the Iphone is absolutely not true, latest findings in the trail "Apple vs Samsung" has revealed that Samsung was busy with a design that looked almost identical to the iPhone in 2006, the iPhone was released in 2007. If anyone is folowing the Trail you should know this, but maybe you posted before this was revealed.
