Can't argue with that. It's true:

Samsung + HTC + Motorola + Huawei + Sharp + Casio+ Lenovo + LG + Sony + ZTE + Pantech + Oppo + everybody else and their momma, are moving more phones/tablets than Apple, a single company.

Now about those profits, app revenue, online purchases and web surfing. . . If only that could translate back to Android somehow... I guess actually making money isn't that big of a business concern for the Android community.

Well it's true, but Apple dosen't care. They make more profits, than almost all the Android makers combined. The biggest loss for Apple though is Asia. They are having a really hard time getting their "perfection", across the tehcincall mess that Asia is.

How? There r thousands of phone and tab models from some hundred manufacturer using android compared to only single apple having only few models less than 15 having ios, just like 1000 men pulling rope from one side and 1 pulling from other and finally they saying we Win the war...... but think strength of that single person..... actually he is winner.... :)

maybe you should just stop making up facts and stop hating for no reason. you're the only person calling windows a failure. If you used a WP8 product, you'd know its actually really interesting and creative, and performance domuinates ALL products in the market (specifically android aka lagdroid)

On a personal note from what i have observed you get the same thing where ever you go, Whether its HTC, Samsung, or any other handset using Andriod. You don't go any where different. iOS is something different, Some thing which does seem flexible and smooth. I am not a FAN ASS of any specific product or OS. I have personally used Andriod and iPhone and other market giants and found iOS the most stable yet. I am not posting anything in competition . Its just my own personal view . If anyone agrees/disagrees to it, not my concern.

Lol. I am from India. So I know it. I bet I will give u an Android phone within Rs 2500. U wanna name. It's name is ROKIA. It's a cheap chineese phone. Even therere are so cheap companies that make phones and put the Samsung label on the front. These phones are mostly laggy, buggy and also the touch is not sensitive. I love Android. But i will say Android is good when the phone having at least 1Ghz Arm v7 processor and 512MB RAM. Phones like Galaxy Y, duos lite are pathetic.
