I am a tech enthusiast. I dont owe an allegiance to any brand, OS, or manufacturer. For the purposes of discussion I am grouped with the android people since I spend the bulk of my time defending it against certain board trolls. However, I defend all OS's against inaccuracies and I have personally owned most every major OS besides Symbian and iOS.

Ive owned a windows phone. Think of it as the love child of android and iOS, taking many of both's cues. its very solid, slick, and stable while offering some customization (more with each update) and better OS integration of things like twitter and facebook than either iOS or android.

The reason I didnt stay with it was I am too used to androids uber customizations. i couldnt give up the ability to tinker (my xda obsession is documented on the boards..lol). That and I had it when it first launched so there were many apps that I had to give up to keep it.. which again, im not ready to do. It could also use higher resolutions and stronger hardware.. as well as better battery life (i hate the use of snapdragons!!! ugh)

Once it gets a navigation on par with free google NAV (and again, free as well), and the app store fills up a bit, I'll probably be giving it a second look.

there is a reason your one of the idiots i constantly bring up.


You do realize the bet is for Q1 2012.. that would be jan-feb-march.. lol. That has nothing to do with right now. Right now the iphone is performing well due to its initial sales bump that all iphones and most phones in general get. It wont have that sales bump in Q1 2012, so please educate yourself... no better yet, take the bet.

look you ignoramus

3gs
4 gsm
4 cdma
4s gsm
4s cdma


that looks like 5.. count them 5 versions of iphones for sale right now.

vs
SGS2
Nexus Prime
SGS1

and maybe the Note

and EXTRA maybe the SGS2-HD.

You technically have more DEVICES FOR SALE.
and if u want to count the CDMA and GSM versions as the same, then you have the SAME amount of devices for sale.
and the SGS2 is OLDER THAN the i4s.

you are a moron of the highest caliber.

chicken out of what exactly? a lopsided bet that only an idiot like you would think is fair? lol.
you wanna go OS to OS or manufacturer to manufacturer, im game.

You want to go phone to phone. Ill tell you what, when there is as much inner OS competition on the apple side as there is on the android side (aka the same amount of phones for each) then we can go phone to phone. the i4s only competes with android, the SGS2 not only competes with the i4s, but with every other high spec'd android on the market.
the i4s will still be the top selling singular phone on the market just like its predicessors.. because it has no competition at the top of the iOS space. Android faces immense competition internally. That is also why android phones are eons ahead of apple phones in technology. competition. you can keep your "highest selling phone" award, because it means nothing. you can also keep your 800mhz 3.5 inch lower-mid tiered "top of the line" iphone.. lol.

Havent you been paying attention? Michael has spelled it out numerous times. Apple DOESNT CARE about total sales, just total profit. Google DOESNT CARE about huge profit, just total market proliferation. Its not in apple's interest to split their line up into many devices, and its not in googles interest to narrow the android army into just a few devices.
So the ONLY way to have a measuring contest is by OS, which you will lose before you start, or manufacturer to manufacturer where the amount of phones are widdled down into something that is vaguely similar on both sides, which is the current bet that taco and I have.

in trying to continually call me out on this BS wanna be macho bet that you are crying about, you are only making yourself look more dumb than normal.

a simple no i dont want to lose.. doing phone vs phone... thats all you had to say,.,. the more you explain .. the more coward you sounded...

having the highest single selling phone means nothing???.. really??... it means soo much that people buy it because is the iphone pure and simple... that's how much it means.... Michael doesnt work for Apple... you cant have profits without having sales... you need bth. to say Apple doesn care.. you are speaking from your *.

ANY reason in the world why you would jump in here and make everyone's point easier?? Calling someone a coward or a fool over TECH while posting nameless and faceless is what we can do without. You could have made your points without your slams. I never thumbs down anyone for making a statement I disagree with. I save it for insecure posters who cannot manage to bolster their argument without breaking out playschool antics. If we were on the playground and climbing the monkey bars, you would hide behind the sea-saw and push someone off from behind, gallitoking.

Part of the Nexus is the instant ICS...not just the phone itself. Don't get me wrong, the phone is awesome, but the certainty of the Nexus Line pertaining to upgs is also a very nice selling point.

New OS and looks faster updates new features ,completed promises, great screen and content considerably growing better. All this on a profile that does not goes over the4.3but the fire test is when it reaches both reviews and consumers hands. But the device looks promising

I don't think it's outlandish for the Nexus and GSII to outsell the iPhone 4s. Not likely but not out of the question.

if the nexus actually gets launched on every carrier.. or at least all the same ones as the i4s/i4, then we will finally have a head to head race.

I dont think it will outsell because of the nature of the beast. Iphone sells 1 model for a year or so, so you dont really have a choice. The nexus prime is great, but the competition on the android side will have it out dated by january with something bigger n better. It will still keep selling because its a nexus and that is a brand name to keep, but it will eventually be outsold by other android devices like the galaxy3 or whatever else may be in store for us.
Of course, I could be wrong, but thats how its been played out so far.

the iphone was at one point in one carrier and still was not beaten by one in all carriers....

iPhone was on AT&T and most large carriers in every country it was sold and the Galaxy model phones and Nexus are just pulling up brand recognition and retention. Also iPhone on AT&T has a much bigger advantage than the Nexus on T-Mo.

Teaming up with Verizon is a winning strategy cause Verizon is hands down the best advertising US cell company. A well branded Nexus on Verizon could be the kind of thing that busts out 30 or 40 million units globally without much of a sweat.

Simply speaking, this website appeals to informed consumers when it comes to phones and the information available doesn't support iphone. Granted there are people who look at all choices then choose iphone but for the most part I would guess is that people who buy an iphone don't bother to look at alternatives, their minds are already made.

The iPhone will always be popular so of course its sales will show that. Howe er most people do want to see something different and new in ICS that the Nexus brings. So I wasn't surprised that the Nexus easily won. The SGS2 and RAZR are both excellent phones but gingerbread is old news and won't get the excitement until they get ICS.

'The iPhone will always be popular so of course its sales will show that. Howe er most people do want to see something different"

you do knwo how idiot that sounded... if people wanted something different.. it wouldnt sold millions... right?..... breaking previous records...

what matters here and in China.. is what people buy.. not what they want... or you think the specs on the nexus is what people want?... really.... you were smarter when you had the iphone...lol..( last part was intended as a joke man,... lighten up)
