It's because most Americans are too ignorant to understand the power Android offers...

No, it's because there are too many stupid Americans; ignorance has nothing to do with it!!

I read reports Apple are reducing iPhone 5 parts orders as sales are disappointing.

There are iPhone discounts only after a few weeks after launch which were unheard of until now which also indicate poor sales.

Perhaps most people who want iPhone 5 already bought it? So the spike in iPhone market share in US is only temporary!

You are the real ignorant, everybody has the right to choose, iOS is a good system the lack of innovations don't not make it worse thing in the Earth, just make it boring, and the majority of smartphone buyers want a phone that just works with no complications that what iOS delivers, simplicity. The fandroids are even more annoying, and brainwashed than Macf**s!

Not surprising. Many American's think because something is expensive its popular. (and then they come to websites like this who think the iphone is the next jesus)

not many. Most are cheaper. The note 2 is more expensive the gs3 is the same price. Out of ontract price the iphone wins by far.

I think these numbers/statistical data is misleading, there is no way in heck Apple will have such a commanding lead over Android in the USA market; especially since Iphone is almost twice as much and is only on 3 major carriers (and no regional carriers).

I call BS!.

Ah, its called getting a phone on contract. On contract, the iPhone is just as cheap as any other phone, if not cheaper than most of the newer Android phones.

As far as not available on regional carriers go ... try again ... quite a few regional carriers have picked up the iPhone.

Some, yes. But the majority (in my opinion) get it because of the hype/brand. It's just how America works.

I think it is just because the iPhone is best phone out there. The rest of the world hates anything American. American company not American made. I do own Android also so you cry babies can say what ever you want. Have a great holiday all.

You are right about one thing here, most of the world does hate america, and the iphone is the gleaming example of americanism, shiny, expensive and doesnt do much....

Well, technically the OS on android is American owned, so that might not be the case.

Most North Americans are stupid, they even don't know were North America is on the world map.
And i don't mean Native Americans, but the so called North Americans from Europe!

1 example, on tv you cant say f***k or see boobs, but you will see people get shot and die....those kind of stuff makes them stupid. They have stupid rules and laws.
And real Americans are the native ones, all other americans are import.
