i bought the iPad by recommendation from friends.
u need to have the product before u found out their short coming...
coz all the F***ing fanboys never really tell you the truth, and they don't bother about what it can't, they just keep praising of what it can, even if the "can" is not very well done.

They even failed to mention that its not the phone which gives you a faster internet download or browsing effect but your carrier. You will get 4G LTE with your carrier not the phone itself. So if you have a 3G carrier you will get the same result as your old phone with your new Iphone 5. Also with the Iphone 5 you can't multitask using 4G LTE. I was thinking that this is a ploy with all companies to boost up their figures by saying that they have outsold all their phones within 24hrs. You know the saying lies dam lies and statistics. The more you boost up your figures the more people will hear about it and buy it even though its not worth it.

This is the legacy of Steve Jobs.

iPhone has a long lasting design with high quality and reliability consistently across all the model from very first iPhone to latest iPhone 5.

This is the reason why you dont see drastically change in design but incremental improvement.

Is it iPhone retailers and agents making this pre-orders in anticipation of customer rush and prevent something akin to "out of stock" or is the consumers directly making this pre-orders.
I believe these are two different things and the failed to clarify which is which?

Take BlackBerry Playbook as an example.

I personally think all this figures are useless. A typical way of adding more air to smoke with the hope that it turns into a wildfire (not HTC Wildfire, ;D).

As I see it here (and everywhere else):
Apple fans hate.
Android fans make fun of.
I consider it a big diference n'est-ce pas? ;)
(and I prefer the latter) :D
