No, he's being a jerk. At least if you are going to be a jerk, back it up with facts. But when you just make up crap that everyone knows is not true, your just being a jerk.

TO (someguy and every applefanboy) your just not getting it are you.
it is not pretty incredible that one phone is holding a quarter of the market. If apple was smart they would design more then one model and they would sell more. Only one phone has apple OS which is what everyone is trying to tell people like you. So when you say it correctly that apple OS has one quarter of the market in reality that is pretty lame. Android OS has over 50 percent of the market with the other 15 percent being (dumb Phones).
In moron terms I myself work for a cell store which sells Att-VZW and T-mobile. I sell Iphone and every make android. We avg 50 new phones a month and about a hundred upgrades a month. No lie if ten of them is a Iphone then I sold a lot of iphones that month. Atleast a hundred are android brand.
If you want to compare it to cars like some have. compare it to Mustangs against Camaro-Firebirds of the 80s am\nd 90s. A lot of people will hate me for saying this but people used to say the mustang was the best muscle car between those years. The mustang in reality was garbage. To tiny and the smallest V8 possible and no horsepower. Not even going to bring it that iut was made by Ford. If you looked at numbers yes the Mustang outsold the fire bird or the camaro in a one on one contest. But add the camaro and firebird which where identicle cars with very minor tweaks and diferent company names then there sales together crushed the mustangs. To me that is exactly whats going on with phones today. just like the cars the camaro-firebird had the bigger more advanced everything but came in two diferent models. Now i know the mustangs fanatics who read this will hate me and argue everything under the sun to make there car better again just like apple junkies do with there phone lol.

Analysts are preparing for a huge pump and dump. I haven't seen so many "grasping as straws" article before and they're rolling them out every week now.

Sorry, but a customer in the market for a $49 phone doesn't care about phone specs at all. That's like saying the LG Accolade is outselling the Casio Ravine. Of course it is, it's a free phone and caters to a whole different segment of phone shoppers (cheap asses). Those willing to pay for a high end device aren't getting 3Gs.

People must be stupid why would they want the old Iphone 3Gs when it have MORE DROP CALLS THAN ANY OTHER PHONE OUT THEIR. I'm just glad I upgraded to the Atrix 4G. Cause it's faster better screen more memory and external memory. It only sold more cause it's 49$ so why is this thing news?

Yeah her pissing smiley floating around posts and the thumb wars are missed sometimes, but she agreed with signy once so my guess it that puberty had arrived and all its consequences

An "analyst" did the "research" which a f\/cking moron is trying to pump Apple's stock so he can dump them onto the market.
Notice lately, all these "analysts" doing "research"?? It's called a Pump & Dump play and the SEC should be f\/cking investigating these anal-cysts!
I remember reading an anal-cyst's research on Google back before it IPO'ed, he said, "All Google does is search advertising, there's no way people are going to pay $89.50 a share for a company like that."
Well, since Google had an open IPO, they were just scaring people away so they could buy more shares for themselves.
The best rule of thumb for these analsh!its is to do the opposite of what they're telling you, if they say buy, then sell...if they say sell, then buy!
Have a look at MGM as a most recent example, those analsh!ts downgraded it right before the most recent earnings, so it dropped about $2-3/share, then they scooped up all the shares and MGM popped after earnings. Those f\/cktards!

I lol'd at how PA delivers the statement that no other smartphone was able to outsell iPhone. Well that is natural because there are a lot of choices if you want to own an android device. I bet if there is only one android phone in the market, it will outsell iPhone, but google chose not to monopolize its OS. It offers consumers diversity and flexibility, plus openness in a whole. iPhonearena is on a roll baby.

buyandroidproducts.com is nice but sellandroidproducts or androidproductsonline.com is helpful. Provides a clear picture of the devices and market.
