I love that they say that their new screen are "resolutionary", but they don't even make them.

they designed/engineered it though. I mean, who are we going to give credit to? The architects or the construction workers?

Agreed, there's been a great deal of krÅpple coverage last week and this week, all leading upto that "New" tÅmpon release. And, really much ado about nothing.
PhoneArena, iMean PhoneandiPad Arena, should be doing their homework on more U.S. Galaxy Note releases on the other U.S. carriers, especially Big Red.

Agreed,admittingly the new ipad was just announced so its fresh news and some articles should be expected but there must have been about 60 articles now about it,all pretty much stating the same information over and over and over again.
I certainly don't remember PA posting 60 articles about the products like say the HTC one x when it was announced 2 weeks ago,or 60 articles on the new Sony Xperia s,Samsung note 10.1 or so on when wmc announcements and unveilings were occuring. Not that we need so many repeated articles on android products mind you,its the only the ifans that need all the pr and articles to drum up apple buying fever again

True, Apple lives thanks to ads and merchandising.
Why should Tom Cruise use an iPhone instead another high-end device in mission impossible? (Would be fun if he had to copy a stolen file via ftp or bluetooth during a mission).
Why all ads in the net say me that I will win an iphone 4s?
Why big bang theory made iphone and siri only episodes?
Why Chuck and Sarah use iphones?
Symantec launched the great android malware emergency, some days after aww we were wrong...
Still all the gpu benchmarks like egypt pro etc are optimised for iOS and there's no other way to compare with android or wp, hopefully nvidia will do something. My eyes say that on a prime the same games run smoothly with more detail.
Henry Ford was right...spend the last penny into advertising - people are easily manipulated

Phonearena is far better then some other sites though. Right now, iDevices make headlines. That's the reality of it. As long as phonearena maintains objectivity in the articles and not just pandering every iPositive or apologizing for every iNegative, I'm fine with it.
Just give me the facts and let me make up my mind on how I feel about them. No slant, no spin. That's all that matters to me.

This is what happens when you actually sell devices. Fortunately Android will never have to worry about this. ;)

Ifans won't worry,when the 'new' ipad is sold out they will buy the ipad 2 to keep their apple fix going and as soon as the 'new' ipad becomes available in their local store they can then go and buy that,thus meaning the demoralizing status of not having an apple ipad will never occur

So... supply shortages and slightly lower profit margins? Isn't that the kinda thing that normally gets investors antsy?

when your product gets this much hate you know you at the top of the food chain.
