Ios is a very well design os with the average person in mind, taking a step higher in every updates... And the updates are just good to have, just like the ipad which i bought at ios 3.1.3 and will go beyond ios 5... Yep many says that the ios is limiting a whole lot of functions like flash and all that, but funny many users find it not a major problem..anyway those who thinks andriod is a better system can just do that... Buy an android and just leave us fools and fanboys to our good ol lowtech, unrealiable IOS ... After all its my money...
Oh someone said that ios is american only... Funny how hong kong and malaysia is flooded with i phone...hmmm
Who cares about pple and its world domination.Apple sucks and so do the clones that buy them.People only get them to fit into social circles so they can feel accepted.

Platform fragmentation, not disk fragmentation.
When they say android is fragmented they mean it has various versions running around plus several customizations.
Not that you need to run some «disk defrag».
1% for windows mobile7?
My God! How come Nokia went for it?
Duel, 02 Jul 2011after when iOS 5 comes and new iPhone 5, many many will pick iPhone over android, almost only ... moreWow, you have so much knowledge of the what is going to happen in the future that nobody else has. I am impressed! How do you do it? Are you here for Sarah Connor? Can you give me next weeks lottery numbers?
Hmm... interesting, I predicted that iPhone4 sales should go down these days.
I guess this was due to iPhone4 being released on the Verizon network.
Why buy an iPhone4 now for the same price it was 1 year ago when you could buy an iPhone5 in just 2 months from now?! And if the iPhone5 won't impress you, you could always buy an iPhone4 for 100-150$ less. Of course the iPhone5 sales will skyrocket as usual.
And now for the Android vs. iOS:
Yes, iOS is a lot smoother than Android, and it's functions work all the time, while on Android there are WiFi, Bluetooth,... issues all the time on various handsets (myrads of being available on different handsets). But Android has it's plus points: Tasker, widgets, custom launchers, various keyboards, removable battery, microSD, various price markets (150$+).
Every OS has it's positive and negative side.
Duel, 02 Jul 2011after when iOS 5 comes and new iPhone 5, many many will pick iPhone over android, almost only ... moreJudging from the recent iOS update i am pretty sure that iOS 5 will be called iAndroid 5.. LOL!
Hmm,US is Apples teritori.....While Android has rest of the world under its spell
after when iOS 5 comes and new iPhone 5, many many will pick iPhone over android, almost only reason for pick android is widgets and iOS5 covers most important situations where you use widgets.
Bad times for competitors.
And we should not forget that soon android is full of holes and full of viruses and malware. After you need to use virus scanner on your phone you have lost the game.
And what about security, average people loading apps from OFFICIAL android market and you never know what you get. These kind of things going to be apple's benefit.
iPhone is going to sell more and more.
Yes 27% sales for iphone 4 because is 0$usd
you can get it for free only to sign 2 years
agreement with some provider in USA.
Like that and my grandmother can sell 27%
In other case iphone4 is to big rubbish with
many problems including and big problem with the network
As Far as i see only drawback of android is not "fragmentation nor open-source or viruses" because windows has been number one OS even though it is prone to viruses and also even with disk-fragmentation-registry compared to more easy-to use mac OS .
Android-running-phones only talks about features but apple dont do that .
they promise us with less features yet all those features work seamlessly without flaws .
when iPhone 3GS came they promised double speed to 3G so even today 3GS is top 6 most selling handset in the world (over 30 million vs samsung galaxy s only 10 million) and same with iPad 2 .
through out iPad 2 keynote they promised better processor , 2 cameras (didnt mention pixels) , gyro ,thinner n lighter and apps didnt say anything more than that.
thats why it was huge success despite iPad 2 isnt big upgrade from first iPad .
take case of Xoom they made huge ads about 4G and micro-SD slot and put huge price tag with poor screen quality and nothing worked either 4G or slot until they updated . thats why they failed .
apple gives everything what they promised even battery life amazing on iDevices .
when i used my first iTouch 3rd gen i thought its horrible battery life but after using friend's zune or galaxy player i felt ipod touch was so much better in battery .
whatever i think and buy finally always come back to apple :)
Who cares? This does not represent the smartphone trend in the rest of the world where android rules with 300,000 activations every week,iPhone is only used after jailbreak by a lot of users atleast outside us.
joonius, 02 Jul 2011Demise of Android. lol So stupid.Demise of android indeed . . . LMAO at a laughable comment
Been saying this for months and months now. Funny how it's becoming more and more a reality, hope Apple bashers are taking note. Denial is not a river in Egypt lol.
Personally not much of an Apple person but 27% isn't bad for one phone (yes, four generations of it).
