iPhone 5 may run on all 3G and 4G networks (except WiMAX of course)

Remember that Qualcomm chip that we told you about back in November? The one that had far better energy usage and seemed like a sure bet to be part of the iPhone 5? Well, it seems Morgan Stanley just noticed that...

Finally iOS users will get LTE. Guess what? "that next BIG thing is already here" :)
Samsung with Android .... I love that ad of yours.

pshh yea that's why iOS jumped 26% to 43% last month and android fell from 60 to 47%. Apple's reign is just beginning. iPhones are still in very high demand. Consider the iPhone 4s, 4 and 3gs were the top 3 best selling smartphones last month as well. Android is just gonna continue to fall.

I want to know as well. I mean I have android now but I always have use Iphone. It just not about who is dying (RIM) who might be the best (IOS Vs Android vs Windows Phone) but seriously Apple needs to do something better that what they already doing. Any person will see that they are just doing minor upgrades to release a new version of the phone itself. Is my personal opinnion but I dont see Android falling? like @idroidx650 says

Crapping out phones every few weeks is not innovation. Releasing the Droid Razr in the summer and then releasing the Droid Razr Maxx as the new flagship in winter is not innovation at all.

And please, can someone tell me the crazy innovation that makes Android so revolutionary. Honestly, all their phones are usually processor upgrades and camera upgrades and that covers 99% of Android "innovations". The last attempt at innovation on Android's side were 3D phones, and that really hasn't been too successful.

In my opinion, there is no company today being innovative with their smartphones, and that's both Apple and Google included. I consider WebOS's multitasking as innovative and not new UIs and animations like you see in Android.

dude it's all over the web. Sure Android will gain more ground by releasing pointless devices that people will get excited for and then gets outdated after 2 weeks haha

Whats wrong with innovation? If we keep releasing better phones every 2 weeks compared to 2 years, eventually we'll leave the iPos in the dust

Unfortunately, what he's saying is true. Check out the link below. The article slipped by without too much of a fuss on PA, but it was definitely posted a few days ago. Yeah, its a decent phone, but I still don't get it. Smooth is good, but the customization, functionality, and freedom Android offers just can't be matched. I think iOS will eventually become the number one OS, but it won't last.

The problem is how this numbers get summed up if its by OS it might also include tablets from which also they have over 80% of the market. Also if those numbers are right I don't recall Android in 60% it was 50-55 and it could be just one firm. An OS activating one million new phones a day won't flock its share by such a huge gap no matter how well the numbers are

Edit that's a sales chart not a market share chart. It explains everything

People do not realize something so simple and obvious and keep spewing the same nonsense, Apple got all those sales because of the Christmas madness so all those shallow personality deprived teenagers got iPhones because if one of them gets it they all must get it to not feel left out and feel more pathetic than they already are :-)
All of the shallow and dumb people that I know got iPhones, every single one, now I'm not generalizing and I'm sure a lot of smart and worthy people get iPhones but they're not the norm, the iPhone is cool and simple, the other platforms are for people with enough individuality to choose for themselves and not let the masses do it.

"Verizon LTE and AT&T LTE don't run on the same frequencies, and we had yet to see a radio that could run both, but it seems this Qualcomm chip can do just that, which truly does make it the all-in-one solution that Apple would love."

That's one of the reasons why it is interesting to join LTE now for them

That's harsh luck man. I know many people who swear by Samsung products and absolutely love them. I personally love my Samsung TV and my GSII. I'm even getting a Samsung laptop in a week or two.
Props on the "freezes more than the north pole" bit tho. That was funny.

Bad luck friend. I think Samy has to concentrate on quality rather than quantity. Other wise it will become another Nokia.

If the iPhone5 launches without LTE which is entirely probably due to battery concerns, availablity of coverage at launch, etc. what is the blowback on that?

They dont need too.. Android will always outsell Apple as a whole.. but one manufacturer will never do it... just warch what happens with the iphone 5... What happen in China is nothing compare to what is coming...
