now tell me, how would you beat an OS that is being produced by tons of different manufacturers? Android is King.

Besides Symbian, you could have said the same about Windows mobile OS.

Where's the Droid 2 or 3 for that matter?
And why is the vibrant beating the regular galaxy S?
That whole chart is suspect...

its the same thing i biztch about every time. EVERY iphone model and version is lumped under "iphone", yet all the SGS phones and android phones are broken up. The vibrant, sgs, fascinate are all the same phone on different carriers.
This chart has been crap with every release, and it will continue to be crap until they fix that by either lumping ALL similar phones together like they need to do with the galaxyS variants, or by BREAKING UP all phones, including "iphone" into its 3g, 3gs, 4, 4s, CDMA and GSM variants like it does with android devices.
Its a crock of crap.

Yep, this chart is not even close to accurate. Which model of the Blackberry Curve is selling?
PhoneArena, can you verify the acccuracy of this? Or are you just cutting and pasting the "news."

Notice how Huawei and ZTE handsets had 3 place holders in the 20! And as manufacturers, they are ranked in the 7th and 8th place, respectively.
This goes to show more and more people are using android from Huawei and ZTE despite all the noise from android readers on this website. Just look at MetroPCS results or Cricket's new releases and it's clear, users want cheap android handsets.

Why is it when we always see a chart of top mobile phones the iPhone is always listed as only one unit? Last time I check there a multiple versions of idevices and should have breakdowns of different models like the other manufactures. When it is posted this way it is misleading and creates an artificial leader.

Can I trust this source for future reference?
I just thought it was strange RIM growing. Is there a reason for RIM´s growth?

lets check back in a year. it will look drastically different.
when you have all the major competitors competing for the best products at the lowest prices, best hardware, and improving os. apple has a huge fight it can't win. one vs all.

Apple isn't for everyone. That is why Apple competes for its customers and does pretty well as evidienced by their gross profit margins and high customer satisfaction surveys.

People tend to defend their overpriced purchases to the teeth to justify their spending as not just attaching their self worth to a brand.
As the previous owner of a luxury brand (a car, BMW) I have no reservation making this statement. Once reality set in that while it was a good vehicle, it was still just another good car. There were other good vehicles out there to choose from.
Until that time, I defended BMW's quality to the bitter end.
Its a sad thing to live in a reality distortion field. More sad to cling to it once confronted with the truth.
The most ardent Apple fans remind me of Cipher from the Matrix. The one that would rather be back in the goo believing the nutrient paste was a steak.
