THE EVIL GREEDY EMPIRE IS FALLING DOWN SLOWLY.

Apple lost a staggering $130 billions within one month.
It was like $705 about month ago, now drop to $540. You'll lost a mile try to gain another inch.

The Note and Note 2 are meant to be niche products, which actually became quite more mainstream than expected.

At roughly 5 million units sold in less than one year, the Note was catalogued as a huge success. With the Note 2 Samsung is only spotting an even bigger hit, against most expectations from marketers and tech industry experts worldwide. Get your facts right before commenting misinformed gibberish.

The Note is a new kind of phone that Samsung is testing out to see if people are interested and well they are. Note 1 sold 3 million in over 3 months around the world. Note 2 did that in 35 days and not all of USA has it. Its back ordered in a lot of stores and T-Mobile is selling out of them quickly. Apple needs to make a new strive with your iOS for around the world if they want to keep up.

Apple is slowly dying and without another think tank to bail them out it's like the Titanic at the moment. Alot of people are slowly selling their Apple products as Android grows bigger. Maybe if Apple thinks of a holographic phone then that would make them better.

Its Sammy that is running scared, trying to catchup or even risking attention with junks! Eg. The Note2, what a joke 3 millions since release. Compare to 30m from iPhone 4S!
Looks like early death for Note2! Another let down.

I don't think they will be able to sell the iphone 5 in china. a chinese company copied the iphone 5 and patented the design already. now if apple is going to sell the iphone 5 there, they have to pay royalty to the chinese copycat or be banned from selling it there.

Because the rest of the smartphone market will have moved up from simple phones to holograph tech with MeeGo, Android and Maybe even Windows Phone while apple still is using simple hardshell phones with iOS.

With the iPhone5 in it early life, it will do better. Look how long did SGS3 release? Half year ahead! Each time Apple release new iDevice they break record history, double up each time, year over year!
By 2020 iPhone will be the world's only phone! Only Phone!! And iOS will be the world's only OS!! Only OS!!!
