the best thing about this review/preview is the Duke Nukem Forever Box :D
everyone is always jealous with apple, but if u look @ the facts when ever a new phone or a tablet comes out, what do they comepare it with apple, because other devices is not worth comparing it to other than apple and thats a fact.

Even Symbian managed this to a certain extent.Do you really know what you are talking about? You know ADOBE makes flash, NO Apple.
Nokia didn't make flash for symbian, ADOBE did.
Apple just don't want it. Flash doesn't work very well and Apple dont want any less than perfection.
Galaxy s2 is first phone which proved flash actually can run perfectly smooth on mobile browser, so it's interesting to see how Apple feel about that.
I would take sgs2 flash performance to my iPhone, i think its working great and how it should been working since some people made it so big deal having flash on phone.

NEO, 13 Jun 2011there always will be million of ppl who want certain OS's or brands over others. but there is ... morei do got your point and its so obvious that Symbian is ending now ... but really as i hold both n8 and iphone4 ... n8 is my function cell it do sync. with Ovi and over the air already it do millions of other things ... but when it comes to Showing off defenitly the iphone4 is a winner with its smooth UI and fluid transitions !
Its amazing, Apple invented a notifications bar, how brilliant, They will be suing google now to take that feature off android because when apple do something no one else can have it...
Sea-Breeze, 13 Jun 2011you are right ... but there are millions of people who prefer Function ability OVER eye-candy ... morethere always will be million of ppl who want certain OS's or brands over others. but there is obviously something lacking in symbian as nokia will be moving more towards wp7
personally i think that the features iOS is bringing are a nice add-on but are most deff not a nesessaty for the iOS i actually like the current notifications due to the fact that when i get a text i tend to want to reply to it not leave it.
the auto syncing feature with my iPad and PC does sound interesting, due symbian have that feature?
some of these features may not be new but its nice to see apple adding something new and dare i say it some of the prefered freatures from other smartphone OS's. they have implemented some of the other OS's best features and puyt it into 1 OS and IMHO thats what manufacturers should be doing so that tech can evolve into something amazing (was gonna say magical but would be called a fanboy for that lol)
all OS's are very good and i hope they all learn from each other so we the consumer get the best products
NEO, 13 Jun 2011may be the king of features shame the ui suckyou are right ... but there are millions of people who prefer Function ability OVER eye-candy features ..
Oh my God Can't believe that all newest stuff are already in the highly criticized Symbian^3 from ages !! Really Symbian^3 is the King of features ..
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2011In my opinion the upcoming war will not be Android vs iOS. iOS has a relatively loyal followin... moreIos is predicted to be losing it's marketshare as Nokia's WP-phones arrive. WP7 and Android will be the biggest OSs soon. We'll see.
B8, 13 Jun 2011If you have bought overpriced gadget, you should convince yourself that it is the best ever in... moredid apple say they invented any of the new features?
did google invent cloud services?
did google invent notifications?
did google invent software crashes? hmmm actually google might as well have
did google invent malware? nope but it sure likes it
no software is perfect without imitation software and hardware wouldnt improve.
hell if it wasnt for apple/microsoft having widgets on their macs/pc's then android wouldnt have them either
just enjoy the fact that we are getting choices
If you have bought overpriced gadget, you should convince yourself that it is the best ever in this world. You have to avoid suffering by deceive your own mind that the gadget has no match.
You should cheer yourself by saying that you don't need certain features which is not available/ not included in your gadget. You have to be proud to yourself by saying that your gadget can also do something similar, that the others have done long time ago, if such feature is finally also available in your gadget, and even say that the company have invented it, that it is a revolutionary breakthrough.
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2011In my opinion the upcoming war will not be Android vs iOS. iOS has a relatively loyal followin... moreI agree!
iOS has already got a loyal following which android will not convert anytime soon. WP7 is the dark horse that Android should be watching out for. Apple have proven that brand name means so much so with Nokia onside WP7 may end up with a clear run!
Pretty much all of this stuff is ripped off from some other OS. Especially "iCloud"; I can't believe they had the gall to name it that after suing Amazon for calling their app store "Appstore".
In my opinion the upcoming war will not be Android vs iOS. iOS has a relatively loyal following which is going at a steady pace. The battle to watch out for is WP7 vs Android where the customer base actually overlaps a lot. Imagine the average customer who isnt aware of different OSs, and faced with phones from the same manufacturers, but with WP7 having the extra brand Nokia on it's side. WP7 could give Android a surprise fight if Android isn't careful.
Times are changin my friend. Stay tuned.
Duel, 12 Jun 2011"How ever, trying to make me look stupid, and selling me a device and not allowing me to ... morei have no problem with others people using others ideas. but when apple are sueing others such as samsung for having square icons and having swiping menus and calling evryone copycats and thieves and then copy themselves, i have an issue with that as that is pure hypocracy.people are not bashing apple for copying but bashing them for being hypocrites.
