Apple lose iPhone name in Mexico, revise statement in UK - read the full textUpdate: As The Verge has explained in their post on the matter, it seems there has been a misunderstanding over what actually happened in Mexico and what everyone thought had happened. As it turns out, Apple intended to cancel the 'iFone' patent in Mexico so they can register their own 'iPhone'...

The END is near...

Quad core is the highest specced right now but dual core is way hi up there still. As such your entire statement is flawed by missleading thoughts. Besides have you ever used LG optimus or LG Ally just to name two older 600mhz single core phones that work great. I even got the optimus to ice cream sandwhich and the ally to gingerbread. And they worked good before that too. Of course there was a couple hiccups but nothing major.

Apple, u sucks big time! Yesterday I went to Apple store at Robina ready to get the iPad mini for my son but guess what, the staff took the chair from my 5 yr old son while he was playing with the iPad mini without any apology or reason. And of course, my son was not happy about it. I took him out of the store ASAP for the sucking service. That's what you get from the Apple name if you think they care enough. Not happy Jan! Ban the bleeding Apple name forever!

If I were the CEO of iFone I would consider changing the name of the company for a generous multi million dollar contribution to the company by apple. :D

RIP Symbian) But you cant get the impression of using an android from an iOS device. Theres lot to play with in an android. but in iOS all you get is 4 rows icons and a dock (now 5 rows)some fancy animations. thats all. Not to forget that android has come with real innovative techs such as Slide down notification bar, Widgets, Face unlock, googlle now and much more. What iOS brought is multi touch, Siri and what else? Sorry i forgot, overpriced devices. If you have ever used an high end android like SGS3, You will never ever even try to take a look at an iOS device.

Android is the worst os out of the 3. Also developers focus more on iOS vs android as 3 reasons. 1 much easier to program, works much better on the iOS even if program is available on both os, finally developers make more money writing for the iOS,as apps can be shared like a f in torrent file.
