the new iPhone will suck badly as it lacks any new features whatsover, and it's market share will drop significantly within the next 6 months, you will all see tomorrow.

How has Blackberry got itself in such a bad position I have used them for years and I just can't see how or why things are going wrong for them.

If RIM does go which I hope it doesn't it will be WP8 for me having used WP7 as my Dad runs Lumia 800 I have found this very fluid and a refreshing change to other OS.

My current handset is Blackberry 9900 with a 9380 as a spare, and to me they both do everything I want.

I bet you thought the same before first WP7.5 phones were released in the U.S.
The reality will be a U.S. bump for iOS but only in q4, while worldwide android will continue spreading like a wildfire.
Even if iphone sells 50 millions, it won't stop android from growing.
Right now android is reaching 110 million devices sold per quarter, and the growth just gets steeper

I think this could all change drastically at any time as mobile contracts are over 18-24 months I changed from ios to android and my contract is up soon and im really contemplating going for a wp8.I like the look of the tiles and the fact it will link games with my Xbox account. I like android but I feel most of the apps are really poor dont get me wrong there are some cracking apps but the majority are bad. And ios was grear for music but lacked customization. I know your going to say well wp8 has less customization but I like the fact the tiles are live and I can choose what go's where. And im sure theres many people out there that feel the same as me.

yeah you dont need expandable storage(you just pay premium for more storage lol)

yeah dont need bluetooth to transfer files(when every other device nokie,bb,android,pc does this very basic function)

yeah it doesnt suck to open itunes whenever i need to transfer stuff(and take ages to open up)

yeah tell me more apple fanboy
