Speaking at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that there is still plenty of room for more growth in Apple iPhone sales and added that the iconic smartphone is currently available to only one out of every two wireless subscribers with China a major area targeted for future growth...

A true and fair judgement really...!!! I think I'll use your opinion on my blog. You are so right on your steam engine example and what I think is with Apple's products quality and OS and Samsung's functionality's integration there will be a perfect smartphone.

Btw Apple is an old player in this field and it still has much more money in reserves than Samasung, I strongly believe this. And all those people who are saying Apple this Apple that should know that the one who is on CEO post must be someone genius and must have something on mind. Always know that an organisation sometimes have to sacrifice short-time success for long term plans.

And besides if thats it, if Apple is losing from their competitors, they can have a come back, they stand very firm on financial grounds.

Btw that was a one sided statement. Sincerely I am a iFanboy since I bought iPhone 2G it was something I had never seen. But now at this point I have iPhone 4 I've also seen iPhone and used SGS3 too, and I was really fascinated by the functionality of S3, it really is something and somewhere in the corner of mind I thought of buying S3 but I won't I'm used to Apple's products so much. And Samsung's products are so appreciable, way to go Samsung, its really gonna be an amazing battle and the best part is it is gonna decrease prices down ;) lol

I think many people only hate Apple as an extension of their hatred for Steve Jobs. Let's be honest... To most, he wasn't a very nice guy and when you're the face of a company, that company can take on the CEO's faults and attributes. It's hard sometimes to separate the CEO from the company and the Apple/SJ combination is the perfect example of that. So when SJ says something like, "They're holding it wrong", some people don't think its a jerk of a CEO just saying something not-so-smart. Some take it as another example of Apple's arrogance and an office company stance. It's not right, but it seems as though that's what happens.

I understand the idea of the post, and there is some truth to it, but it most definitely is not the post of the year. Two requirements would require it to be properly written and punctuated. The way it is written makes it a touch hard to read.......

Both sides of the argument have some very mean spirited people. These are phones for crying out loud. It isn't worth getting worked up about.

Lots of people hate on Apple b/c of the bs litigation as well. Suing people for things like "slide to unlock" and "rectangle with rounded corners" is just f***ing stupid. If someone bought a Samsung by accident while trying to buy an iPhone should pay better attention b/c it is their fault, and vice versa. That takes care of the appearance part. As for the "slide to unlock", where do I begin? If anyone on this Earth bought a phone to "slide to unlock", that is just sad.......

imo, Apple and their image would benefit greatly from moving away from the courtroom and back to a renewed focus on making truly game changing products. They haven't done that since the 3G.

@oister85 "Why people hate so much apple"

I don't know about the others, but for example I don't like Apple as a company because of Apple's politics and morality and how they achieve their objectives and goals.

I think at this point I would rather see major changes to the ui than a cheaper Iphone. It's been years and it is still the same.

The iPhone, and iPads are a huge part of the mobile machine. Samsung and apple are the heart, and soul of mobile tech.

Of course Apple has room for growth their phone is behind the specs and feature curve and don't expect a cheaper Iphone to have any better specs!

Step up Apple! Your loyal customers are starting to realize you hype is BS!

Then you haven't checked in a while. Samsung is bigger in smartphones by quite a bit. Has been for over a year.

Last I checked Android out sells Apple!

http://www.phonearena.com/news/By-December-there-will-be-800-million-Android-phones-active-vs.-300-million-Apple-iPhones_id39652

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Android-made-up-86-of-Q4-smartphone-shipments-in-China-iOS-was-12_id39354

Apple= 1 phone a year so no wonder sale for Iphone 5 are high. Duh!

Android has dozens of phones per year and sales are split up among different manufacturers. Put all those Android sales up against Apples sales and it's no contest!

So all this Iphone 5 sales being so high isn't so high when it comes to Apple vs Android!

Android fans like having a choice of features, size,and looks ect. Open source = customization. Something you get from Apple!

If Android ONLY offered 1 phone based on the features of the best sellers Android OS has to offer right now. I KNOW it would out sell Icrap 5 hands down!

Thumbs up if you agree!
