Yeah, like I said I like the iPhone but I'm waiting to see what the next one will be like. I really like the Galaxy Nexus though.

Compared to what they have and what they have coming Samsung is looking a little stale next to HTC on the phone front and Apple on the tablet front.

Still they do sell for 50% of the price of their competitors.

Still if you read the article carefully it does say Apple sells more smartphones, Samsung sells more Cellphones. Apple and HTC don't make standard cell/feature phones. This is why Rakeesh :: and Zelda will always be back and forwards, these articles are nothing more than click bait.

I was drawn to them because they DID conform. My car has iPod integration, all the coolest apps and games are iOS, my receiver works best with iPod even my motherboards overclocking app was iOS based, Devs always seem to put more into the iOS version (See my Office Suite thread). Most developers report piracy rates are a lot higher on Android.

Maybe this is changing, but it'll take awhile as despite the sales, iOS and iPod are more popular.

Too bad, in the long run, no one cares who was first.

Right, but if you look, they are only under by 2 million. HTC and Motorola sell a lot more than 2 million androids. Never mind LG, Kyocera, Asus, and SonyEriccson.

Well even if you want to look at who is first, Apple stole a ton of features from android in their last iOS version. Not just little "oh that's similar" I mean like blatant ripoffs, things that you ONLY saw in android and then suddenly iOS has them.

In fact I'm a bit hard pressed to figure out what exactly android stole from apple, other than market share. Pretty much everything found on android was available in other smartphones that existed prior to iOS.

Steve Jobs himself even admitted that apple would be nowhere without copying other companies' ideas.

Yeah. The notification system in recent iOSes is 100% Android.

I wonder where we'd all be without Windows Mobile and Symbian? Blackberry also really brought smart phones to the masses.

+1

While Android and Apple brought smart phones mainstream, they were originally pioneered by other companies.
