Instead of your pathetic try trolling me, all you need to do is to visit Orange UK pay monthly phones web page and to check six different HTC phones and TEN different iPhones.

He should have gone into more detail because it seems you really do need an explanation about simple things. Apple released ONE new iPhone last year. According to your faulty logic they released 6. 8GB, 16GB and 64GB in black and white. *sigh* I can't believe I just went through explaining all that to a troll.

I definetely think Windows Phone will gain significant market share in the coming months. It's already grown a lot and will continue to do so. BlackBerry 10 has had good sales but I highly doubt they will return to the game. Also, pretty much most of BB's share is from Indonesia and the UK, where WP is rising fast. WP is already doing very well in many nations, like Italy, Finland and China.

Why don't you understand that some people like to use WP and Nokia. Why dont't you enjoy your laggy and freezing android phone without posting comments about WP or Nokia??!!

Android is great in some cases...but overall Windows is a cleaner and smoother OS. Never stutters, doesn't freeze and is overall cleaner. Give Windows Phone a bit more time, people just gotta stop hating on the OS without trying it.

Apple shipped 47.8 mil iphones in Q4 that included iphone 5,4s and 4. I read somewhere that iphone 4s is the top selling phone from Apple in Q4 so that mean the iphone 5 could be shipped in 20 mil or less. That a FAILURE by Apple's expectation.

There's no need to mislead other readers. If you will check pay monthly phones on Orange UK website, you will find on offer only six different HTC phones and ten, I repeat, TEN different iPhones.
