In our office 3 guys switched to android (SGS3) in this month only and I never thought that these guys will ever think of changing to a different OS.

Apple, this is what happens when you keep on releasing the same thing again and again. People are no longer amazed by the innovation you once have had before

Apple are far from over, but they are losing their luster. The RDF has definitely decreased drastically without Steve Jobs.

My buddy at work, who has owned iPhones since the OG, skipped the 4s because he recognized it was just the same phone he already had (the iPhone 4), and waited for the iPhone 5.

Now that its out he went out and got a Galaxy Note 2, just last week. And he couldn't be happier. Bit of a learning curve for him, but I'm there to help as much as I can. He doesn't miss the iPhone at all, and loves watching movies on that huge screen.

Some one should fire that analyst, even if the ip5 doesn't do as well as it should, it's still far from game over

I don't believe what analysts predicts, because most of their predictions are always wrong, out of 100% only 1% of their pdredictions are right, and then they create so much media coverage on those 1% correct predictions that people forget their 99% failures............ In my opinion analysts are bunch of people who are smoking crack all the time, and making out charts when they are very high............... I'm not fan of Apple or love their products, but I'm just trying to be rational, because news of 2millions iPhone 5 selling in first weekend in china is sure to take the Apple's share higher, because it was bad news from china which brought the share down......... I think apple will start to go down after the launch of iPhone 5s, if they are unable to bring Any drastic changes to the UI of ios on idevices.................but if their is new UI then fanboys will again line up in droves to buy over expensive igadget..........

Don't worry, the i5s is coming in a couple of months. They'll add some little addition to the same ole product to lure the ipholks back. Its a strategy that's works for Apple.

Hi Wendygarett, just thought I would say, not all fandroids are smart but all Androids are :) People like me who buy the top Android phones buy them because they are simply the the smartest as opposed the being the simply the simplest. (you know what phone I am hinting at) Most Android fans are very bright, you need to be smart to work out how to use them ;)
