Hova? Where are you buddy? No iPhone comments? Let me help you out... LG predicts 20% increase? With Windows Mobile? iPhone will kill with a 500% rise in sales in the next month! All hail the chief Steve Jobs!

Maybe I'll ask you the same question I have asked others (not that I care to hear the details or anything- a simple "Yes" or "No" will suffice) Did Steve Jobs rape you as a small child? Were you molested by Apple? You are one little butt-hurt kid.

I used to swear by lg phones way back when att was cingular.. Now what does lg have as a flagship phone? Every cell phone maker has at least one good high end phone.. And im really starting to like htc. But really though, is there any great phone out there from lg? Or at least one in the works?

Maybe the G?650? I don't remember the model name but I remember its called the Eve and ran Android. But what I was getting at was its $50 thru a canadian carrier after rebate and substity. So...I doubt that would be considered a flagship. But its really the only phone they make that I've even noticed recently.

The Voyager was supposed to be thier iPhone competition. I assume it's the ENV Touch now. Which is sad. I have no idea what kind of phones they have for other carriers, though. I wrong
