    I wonder how long it'll be before Apple throws a hissy fit and tries suing Verizon for some kind of Anti-trust practise.

    I commented the other day (don't remember on which site) how Steve Jobs' accusation of Android being a platform for Porn will cause a surprise surge in sales. Guess I was right. :)

    The Iphone locks up too much anyways, and it wont work with the internet standard Adobe flash. I have always hated apple products, and after I got my iphone it just proves I still hate them more than ever. Cant wait to get a phone that works with flash.

    What did he base that accusation on? It can do flash? :lol: Jobs is usually brilliant, but he also has no shame and allows himself to say some absolutely ridiculous things which are insults to the brain of anyone hearing or reading them time to time. Apple's been getting away with calling every shortcoming of some of their devices a feature for way too long.

    So all android phones combined outsell an iPhone. So a dozen+ phones combined.... Can't say that is all impressive.

    On the device level, it's not that impressive, but on the OS level, it's all important. That means that, while Apple did manage to take the smartphone market by surprise at one moment, there's now a new trendy contender in the OS market which already sells better, and that means developers shifting their focus, which will in turn quite likely draw even more people towards Android phones. I doubt that they are shrugging their shoulders at this in Apple HQ. ;)
