One cant help but admire Samsung. They win regardless, as a component manufacture it can use what ever os the market wants. I am inclined to think they will bring out a WP8 Note II look a like, which for example I am far more interested in than just the Note II on Android. In fact both intuition and market nature lends you to believe such a device would blow the Note II out of the water, so come on Samsung, just build it before someone else does.

Well, not trying to troll here but Samsung being king for the last 3 months is over and they will struggle to get close to 30 millions. The iPhone 5 will eclipse that in one month on its way to sell 250 millions as most analysts predicts. Here comes the iPhone 5........!

These predictions are pretty realistic. Some execs like to be over optimistic and throw some crazy numbers. The ones here look close to the real deal.
