Say what you want, think what you want, but Apple sells the most for a reason they make a superior product. It doesnt matter that they made it first they could have made it last and it still would have been better. Apple is one company that makes one product, Android has multiple companys that make many many different products. And all of them together still cannot match the single effort of one company. Its almost pathetic. All it takes is one product from apple to out sell dozens of competitors. There is only one IOS, for a reason, they need 20 different companies making android tablets. They hope if they try enough times maybe eventually one can compete with the sales of the ipad

Are you stupid?

If Apple keeps with the S series they will fail. Look at QUAD CORE TABLETS COMING... only a matter of time till they are more refined.. and look Apple isnt doing it first.. just like they werent the ones to do it with Dual Core phones.. when Apple finally decides to step it up Android phones will already be on the next move. Dwell on the past... You think Apple Was the best a while ago... but look at phones now.. Tablets coming.. (NOT FROM APPLE) The only thing Apple can do is try and keep up.. thats 1 company... their RnD.. against how many companies? All these companies pushing the envelope.. and apple barely pushing theirs. Diff being the other companies are more friendly with each other and are a lil more willing to share tech with each other... Apple has all but burned their bridges.. Soon enough they will be a sole company.. no help from the others.

This is to Taco, TacoTrooper and Donato.

Coming from Scuba_Steve *I'm logged into a friends account.

I'm tired of hearing that just because it sells more it is a better product.

Apple has an outstanding marketing team that knows how to showcase their product. In return, more people have heard of the iPad or iPhone. As a sales rep I have witnessed this on a daily basis and is not a fandroid statement.

I can say with a fair amount of accuracy from my personal experience that the ratio of customers who know android products vs apple products is 1:5

I also have on a daily basis customers who ask for an iPhone and pick up an android phone thinking is was what they were looking for. I have customers thinking the 4 and 4s is on 4G (vzw). These people know nothing of the actual product, just the name so they have no real expectations or standards.

I hate to say it as well but most customers(people) are retarded as hell. This is my opinion as a person not a vzw rep or android user.
