Carlos, 14 Jul 2013What does any of that have to do with a carrier in Russia not selling iPhone?I'm just replying to a comment. Comments replied are underlined that you can click to see. Our you must be offended by my comment because you are an iFanboy.
The best selling phone in all carriers around the world is the iPhone 5 as of July 2013.
Android, however, because of the multitude of devices is the top OS. Apple doesn't have many choices.
I don't think it is Apple's objective to take over the entire world with 1 phone in 2 colors. They want to be competitive. That's all.
hobbit, 13 Jul 2013what samsung did was copying,that is not innovating..it was found guilty in the court..please ... moreRemember what SJ said? " Picasso had a saying good artists COPY great artists STEAL. AND WE ARE SHAMELESS IN STEALING OTHER PEOPLE'S GREAT IDEAS".
It's a human nature to copy and improve the existing thing they see and that is called evolution and innovation. But what Apple is trying to do is patent trolling to stifle innovation through litigations. Apple thinks they are the only ones who have the right to copy when they copied their UI from Xerox, copied iphone design from LG Prada, copied the notification bar from Android, copied the cloud system from Motorola, copied IOS 7 design from Android ICS.

I bet you cant and thats the main problem and was the reason why symbian died. Apple had smooth web experience 2009, maybe even 2008 and Nokia still cant provide that with symbian device. So how it could survive? Exactly
My loss? :) what a joke, why would i want to use laggy and slow symbian device which web browsing is so pain to use like you wanna throw your phone into wall after using it :)
", Symbian could not offer what _stupid_ people wanted"
Only stupid people want smooth and useful mobile web experience? Right...

Your loss. I know for some people "even my 5-year old can use it" is the definition of a "smart" phone. Basically, Symbian could not offer what _stupid_ people wanted. Or "someone" made them want it and pay for it several times more? And now they don't want it any more because someone else made them want something else?

" I dont love apple, apple is me company like son... morei had to disagree on one point..webOS was a revolutionary OS,it just was'nt used and marketed properly,most people dont even know it ever existed,but yo can see it has inspired new features in new OSes like ios 7,jellybean and bb10..

I dont love apple, apple is me company like sony or canon or yamaha etc. I also have samsung television which is great. I use great products no matter what the company name is.
"They made most people believe that the best OS is the flattest, not the most feature-rich and most usable, that apps are the only thing that matters when choosing a platform,"
They made us believe that best OS is easy to use as possible, they made us to believe that smooth device is actually fun to use, they made us believe that you can actually surf web on phone and it could be quite fun when it works very smoothly.
More features doesnt mean anything if the basic features works so badly read symbian its the best example by far of that. Who needs features which is pain to use when the whole device works so slowly and laggy? Also symbian is great example, if you have features you need to MARKET them, people doesnt even know half of what symbian could do. When apple made those same things and actually MARKETED those features people started to use them. Then of course symbian users started to scream, my phone did that over 4 years ago, so what if no-one use it? :)
And yes apps collection is very important thing, those apps are the thing how you can strecth ywhat you can do with your smartphone, and so you get new ways to use your
expensive phone, who wouldnt like that?
"They've destroyed indirectly such OSes as MeeGo, Symbian, Bada, WebOS etc."
What a joke, symbiand destroyed itself because they couldnt offer what people want, same for meego, same for webOS.
Also i dont think there is best OS every OS have their pros and cons, its matter of taste what you prefer, and also what you looking for smartphone. Apple have made many things right so they have many of those things which needed to survive current smartphone market.

Perhaps you should ACTUALLY check out international networks like Vodafone, Optus Singtel, etc. to see how POPULAR iPhone is around the world. Every carrier in Australia offers iPhone 5, and that won't change anytime soon.

Theres no denied that, samsung have to paid 1 billion because what they did, so why we even talk about this? Samaung already got what they deserve.

Still I hate apple for suing somebody who's improving on what they have. When apple improved on other's ideas, nobody sued. It's apple who started that. And it's really slowing down the upward evolution of our consumer products.

What we hate Apple for is how it is suing those who try to improve on their so called innovations. Let others improve on your idea and let our world be a more progressive and convenient and exciting place!
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2013Carriers are really really really stupid if they chose to give so much money to Apple instead ... moreYou're so smart! and those "Carriers are really really really stupid".
If Apple can impose such abusive conditions to carriers it is because there are really really really stupid customers who want those Iphones soooo badly...
