I never expect BADA to have a larger share then Symbian and Windows.

In a way, Samsung's success at the expense of the other brands, may actually eventually turn out to be bad news for Android, as manufacturers explore WP8 instead to gain profitability.

You must hold your phone right way!

You must buy lightning adapter from me because I can rip you off because you have no choice!

I'm telling you, you're only allowed to transfer the files I say you can and only between "i" devices.

I will steal ideas from others then patent them and sue you if you use them.

I will give you little to no improvements to our "i" devices with every new release knowing our followers don't know any better and except what I say. You will cue up outside our retail outlets overnight and wait for the new release.

I know if I make it shiny and fragile our customers are equally shallow will go on and on about it is made out of metal or should I say tin foil?

I can go on forever like this but you get the idea!

Freedom is always better.

Nevertheless Samsung crowds more features and functionality in a more simple and graceful pack. Im actually talking about features that are useful and youre going to use them. And to be honest, android is where it is right now because of Samsung! Galaxy lineup has definitely helped android to increase its market share compare to the help it received from other android manufactures.

The Xperia line gives you stylish devices at nice affordability, the Nexus line also has unmatched affordability plus the best software support on any Android, Samsung and HTC will cost you a bit more but usually pack bleeding edge hardware and a lot of added functionality (which is true even if you hate TW or Sense).

These times are of broad choice, great for consumers, one size/style/price doesn't fit us all!

I'm curious how Nokia sold 82M units, but only 4M Symbian units and about 4M Microsoft units were sold. The "other" operating systems totals don't account for the remaining Nokia sales. Nokia doesn't sell Android or iOS phones... what explains the gap?
