"The Nexus S didn't get anything JB"
Yes, it did.
The Nexus S got updated to 4.1.2.

A lot of this "fragmentation" is partly due to carriers in the US thinking the have the right to control the phones and software on their network. Verizon being the worst. Thus why I bought a Nexus 4 straight from Google.

IOS 6 on the 3gs model is a joke, as many people report the phone to be sluggish.

Stupid! iPhone 2, 3GS and 4 are not runing apps that I bought before from AppStore. The 2 is dead at ios 3.X and the rest is still accepting ios 6 with limitation. But you run ios 6 on 3GS and 4? Is a crapp (crassh, slow etc.). I stay with ios 5.x. The only thing smooth is the antique joke interface.
P.S. I own the 3 above. I stop there and I am looking for Android change on smartphone. I already own a S advance and a Nexus 7. I think I know what I'm saying!

ios 6 was a little buggy but the ios 6.1 made the older idevices faster, even the apps and games are running really well........faster than on ios 5.x
if you own an idevice, just update it now

"When you take an Android device out of the box, you have to sign up to nine accounts with different vendors to get the experience iOS comes with,"

"And turning to the Samsung Galaxy S 4 specifically, Schiller said that it will launch with a year old OS (Android 4.1) that will need to be updated. "

OMG, this guy definitely don't know what BS he's talking about.
Ah butthurt hater everywhere, everywhere! Smh..

When you think about it Apple offer more services on their iOS system, too bad some of them aren't well made (Maps).

He's correct though. I'll sit back now and wait for the barrage of butt-hurt android fanboys.

you and Schiller are the butt-hurt fanboys. Just accept the fact that iOS is nothing nowadays. Hating will not lead you to sucess.

Ahh....but no mention from him that Apple users were very happy with Google Maps coming back and the update after Apple tried their maps experiment...

He isnt correct. He's just trying to make his company's product look better, thats his job. But he isnt correct.

Whose to say all iPhone users use their phone the same? So how does he know one would have to sign up for 9 accounts with different vendors for the iOS experience....as he puts it. He sounds like a fanboy.

That two year old OS is still better than the recently launched iOS 6.1

Phil STFU and update ios7. Then go buy a treadmill, and use it. Android has made bigger strides in its existence than iOS has in its existence. Yes due to various skins its harder to update android n a timely fashion, and the hardware quickly gets outdated for the software, but android is making the bigger strides. Stop attacking android, and attack iOS PHIL!!!!!!

Truth is truth. I like iOS, we all know that, but to attack android when iOS has its own issues is weak. Don't throw stones if you live in a glass house, or a walled garden.

Oz I've said it a million times, I'm not a fanboy I'm a techie, and will not hesitate to call apple out when they are wrong... Him attacking android when iOS needs a bath is WAYYY wrong. I like the platform, but lets be honest...Phil needs to get his house in order before he "attacks" android.
