Hmm... Apparently Americans are getting smarter. Good for them. Now no country in the world is able to deny the truth. :D

unfortunately its not true.....its VERY VERY necessary to show a TV comercial:
1) "look, a real smartphone you can connect to your USB drive" and show it
2) "look, a real smartphone has moving desktop (calendar widget)" and show it
3) "look, a real smartphone can choose your default browser" and show it
4) "look, a real smartphone has NFC" and show it
5) "look, a real smartphone has freedom of choice (price, size, app)" and show it
6) "look, google now, how it understands me in MANY languages" and show what iPhone can not do - its very easy
30 seconds enough and many times to understand the iToy is not a real smartphone (without mention)
otherwise people will still think the only phone is iPhone.......failure of the Google marketing department

Actually it's a failure of the consumer. If I wanna buy something as expensive as a smartphone - and I rely on commercials without doing my research - I would be a complete idiot.

This. But it shows how naive consumers can be which is something companies take advantage of. It's really not Apple's fault if people are willing to pay a premium for not-so-special specs.

no, consumer is not needed to understand everything, something must be told

For a product as sophisticated and as expensive as the smartphone - he (the consumer) is.

"Windows Phone has been around but there has not been any excitement over it until Windows Phone 8 rolled out, and its growth rate has been phenomenal."
It may take a few years to gain significant market share, but Microsoft and Nokia are most certainly back in the game...

That Verizon chart is funny. Granted my store is one of thousands, we always push Androids over iPhones, and we mark our sales on a board in the back. For this month, our Android-to-iPhone ratio is 2-1. Typical.
