Meego Takeover, 14 Nov 2012Totally agree. Samsung has taken away potential profits for other Manufacturers in Android an... moreOk. So because everyone else is not stepping up their game enough or at least not til months and months later means its Samsungs fault? They should not make as good of devices as they do?
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2012I think its more to do with the fact that samsung are finally realising that you need more tha... moreThey mostly always had all of that. Couple things and updates were a little less though and they have picked up

Do you know why?
1. Large replaceable batteries.
2. MicroSD memory expansion.
The two things on the top of my list (and I doubt I'm the only one) when selecting a new device. How many manufacturers still follow the above concept?
I don't see anyone completely dying off though. With WP8, the competition actually heats up, and the consumers ultimately benefit.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2012You are completely off. Manufacturers only release a few wp8 phones to test the market for win... moreCompletely off? Do you not even see how hard HTC is pushing their WP8 line? If you're an Android manufacturer being pummeled by Samsung, and now a NEW market is opening with no clear leader, wouldn't you take your chances and go with WP8? That's why notice that Samsung just pushed one boring black ATIV, while the others are pushing out more interesting WP8 models.
As far as I can see, Samsung is driving the other players to WP8 where they have a chance. Ironically, this would actually be bad for Android later.
trinkner, 14 Nov 2012I'm curious how Nokia sold 82M units, but only 4M Symbian units and about 4M Microsoft units w... moreSeries 40. Nokia is still alive just for series 40. And if u consider series 40 as an OS then it wil b numbr 1.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2012nokia connecting liars and fakers!Nop bro, dnt say like this. Nokia has a big market in poor countries. Nokia makes good dumbphones.
Guess!, 14 Nov 2012Bada is bigger than Microsoft what a joke! Its damn surprising that bada os is stil live! And bigger than windows phone! lol! Samsung u rock! Nokia makes good feature phones, not smartphones :p
Sammy keep it up! But dont forget hardly 5yrs back you had no OS in mobiles. Its becuz of Google Andriod which pepped up your name. Why you didnt progress on own Bada flopped. Nokia still has reserves but steady, Apple has become status symbol than tech device lacking most essentials. Being American!
Mostly sets are sold on carriers then smuggled to world at exorbitant rates to be unlocked. Mind it when ever you need a cell there is always new inovation n market.
when rotten fruit keep falling from the trees.... LET'S keep it falling... NEWTON'S FIRST LAW.... :-)
ikkie, 14 Nov 2012Please explain how. I can understand when you say Android, but how is Samung any different to ... moreie:
samsung android phones are the only global android manufacturer that support native video call via 3G network.
in short, they offer more features compared to other android brands.
It's quite obvious, it's a 2 phone race. It's between teh Galaxy 3's vs teh Iphone5's. Samsung is just killing the android market. No one comes close right now except for apple, who operates their own o.s. It's a good job for them. It's too bad. What samsungs doing now can be nokia, if they went on board earlier. It's really sad.
Thephonegeek, 15 Nov 2012Google beware! One day Samsung will rip your heart out. And they are now devoloping their own O.S.eh. it's open source , google would probably make more profit from that then android anyway you've seen how much they make from ios.
