I suspect that after opening Google stores, Android sales will rocket up.

its ok. Apple doesn't compete on market shares of operating systems. They compete on how much more money they make then their competitors. IOS is apple, android is Scamsung, Sony, HTC, LG, and like 10 other companies. So overall again they are destroying their opponents. Including Samsung. In Canada is like that too. You guys think people really want to buy Android? Galaxy s3 is yours for 50 bucks on a 3 year contract. This is no joke. Other carriers give it away for free on 3 year contracts. Anyways, IOS rocks. True service.

it is true that open source os is more user friendly so that other companies which use that os can customize it to their phone n use their ui to improve the design of the os unlike ur crap ios which is not at all user friendly and very difficult to understand particularly the settings page

i think u should think before posting u guys dont have any reasons and just start criticizing android n othere os

Because the Android users are more sceptical / critical and more serious about things rather than going around masturbating / wowing to everything like alot of iOS users are doing today.

If only apple make its platforms opensource. Android will not have a chance to rise. Apple is giving a chance for the competitor to rise. Why android will eat you up someday
