And let the comment war begin. Go ahead, let's blast each other over Big Brother-I mean Apple, the half baked OS, perjury offenses, outdated hardware, sheep, fanboys, lemmings, hippies, etc. etc. etc.

There, I've had the entire discussion for all of you. Now maybe can we post something new?

lol This will be the article of the day for sure. I am very happy that Android is keeping its steady growth. Now Google can breathe a little easier because they got those 17,000+ patents from Motorola. Extra protection from the ultimate patent troll can’t hurt at all. (We shall keep this troll name less) The future looks great & Ice Cream Sandwich is right around the corner, what else can you ask for! For desert after lunch today, I will treat myself to an Ice Cream Sandwich. (I haven't had one of those for years!)

Amen Sniggly...iOS and Android are growing, Blackberry is falling off the map, Win Phone 7 is struggling to compete and WebOS is soon to disintegrate.

Onward and upward

It doesn't show Android eating into the iOS share at all. Shows that both are growing at RIM's loss.

And where is symbian and bada ???
Is that the "other" OSes ?

Symbian is probably grouped under "other," yes, because it takes up such a puny US market share. T-Mobile is the only major carrier left that has a Symbian phone, and it's a joke that nobody wants to sell.

Feeling better, Peter?

the nokia astound? lol. symbian sucks. nice camera on the thing though. takes perty pictures. we go out of our way to not sell it to most people. nuthin wrong with it but everyone that buys one realises they want apps and trades it for an android phone.. so why go through the trouble? lol

Symbian is a joke, but less of a joke than Faildroid.

there is no BADA in the US peter.. good lord.. LOL.

i was hoping to make a bada joke before u got on the board, but you beat me!! lol

What i find surprising.. and its because i keep forgetting.. is how many old windows sets still sit in the marketplace. cant wait for them to be erased from the market.. lol

Peter, u need to buy a touch wiz enhanced android phone. its probably 90% of all the things u like about bada.. but on a real OS :)

I have had a serious look at the GS2 when it came out.
And no it is not only the touchwiz i like about bada.
One thing i like about bada is that it is soo fast. My wave with bada has a 1 Ghz hummingbird, and the GS2 has a dual core 1.2 Ghz exynos. Still, when i have tried both of these phones my wave is faster and has faster response than the GS2.
And i like the UI on bada better tha on the GS2. Yes bada's UI is very similar to the GS2's UI, but there are some differences in bada that i like better. Also there are only quality apps for bada (about 6100 apps for bada), in comparison to Android where 2/3 of the apps are only low quality fart apps.
