It's just bs to pay so much for these great products, yet have to jailbreak to make them worth it. Then on top of that, not having upgradable mem, no batt access, apple maps are atrocious. I just feel like... Y? Why lock all that down? I can understand no flash & the whole " virus repellent " iOS but why try to hav all this control over my product? Why does apple care so much about what I "DO" with it. I feel like once I buy it, it should then be mine. Don't get me wrong, I love my iPad (j-brkn) but.. The only reason I see for the control apple likes to have over me is because they can. Me changing my batt or upgrading mem isn't going to give it a virus or cause me to return this for a Warrant reason? So y? I think I kno....

Apple will sell millions of iPhone yes, ask me why!

It's like being in jail for a year and finally coming out to be free again. That's how iFans feel after being locked up (iPhone 4S) for so long.

Go on iFans, it's a free world (Android) out there.

Guys iphone 5 is not that great and in terms of innovation lumia 920 as more features great design and more colours. ios is good but android and indows wphone 8 are good as well as for me i like working better with my lumia than my iphone on many operations wp8 will bring up many great things and the new start screen.Apple new ipods are lumia design copies who says otherwise lies... so iPhone 5 is a bigger iPhone 4s with some specs improved, Apple lost the innovation that marked the company now is Nokia making new things and innovating...

Have you guys seen how stupid apple is? They sued samsung for the rounded corners icons, but do you see the icons they have used in the new ipod nano? They are round! I have seen these types of shape already in other os like nokia belle. This just shows how stupid they are, they sue people just for the shape of icons, but they end up using shapes that they didnt create!
May im wrong, did apple also patent the rounded icons?

iPhone 5 is a magical device. It will sell like crazy even though it's at least a generation behind the Lumia 920.

years back iPhone was said to be years ahead of other phones but look at it now only iTunes holds it, the rich are afraid of loosing all their investment they have made with it over the years. That's the reason they are buying the new phone. most of them are hiding a Droid in another pocket!!!!

At the moment iPhone 5 is the insanely best magical phone that money can buy.

So far no other phone can replace iPhone 5.

Jobs had brilliant ideas but now he is dead (RIP). He was only person who made apple as we know now. So, how long does it take before apple transforms into regular producer of IT products as it was in early 90s before Jobs.

To honest I am not against apple and iphone, moreover I like the design and some futures of iphone, but license wars, strange view on distribution of the products is not acceptable nowadays

so, my choice is Samsung for it's hightec and non glamorous design

Performance first

So much for openness. Google blocks Acer by threatening to revoke Android licence.

From the article:

In response to Rubin's statements, Alibaba Group spokesman John Spelich said in an email it was ironic Google talked about openness, but still promoted a closed system with its Android OS.

"Aliyun OS is not part of the Android ecosystem, so of course Aliyun OS is not, and does not have to be, compatible with Android," he said. "This is like saying that because they own the Googleplex in Mountain View, therefore anyone who builds in Mountain View is part of the Googleplex. Will someone please ask Google to define Android?"
