Yes a non-story.

Android = OS
iPhone = phone
#3
why shouldn't they?

how is that even a comparison anyway?..
nevermind newsworthy :roll:
#4
Android is an OS iphone is a product on its own, it makes no sense to compare it.
#5
Did you know The Avatar film is outselling Cathy Burton CD sales?
#6
Most people who want an Iphone already have one so its a wonder they are selling any,
#7

iphone
iphone 3g
iphone 3gs
and soon to be released 4g


Although yes plural, they are still technically the same phone, just updated. They look the same, they have the same architecture, just a few things changed with them.

"Before you all go crazy...YES we know iPhone OS is only on a few devices, yes we know Android is fractured to hell, yes we know Apple has an archaic approval process, yes we know Android has more "features" than iPhone OS, yes we know iPhone OS is catching up."

(if the first 10mins of this thread are anything to go by)

I'm an Android user, formerly an iPhone user when they first came Stateside. This isn't a fair comparison and has little meaning. A real story would be if say the Desire outsold the iPhone.

Justify? Probably not, if people like it then that is how it is. Personally I used Android since release with the G1 originally, don't think I am still justifying my purchase (or rather free upgrade) still now!

Exactly, now that would be something!

the majority of android users in misc are desire users ? and most of them can be seen running down the iphone and singing the praise of the desire would u not agree

no i just refuse to pay the £200 up front and then the £40 odd or whatever it was per month for a phone when desire is half the price and does the same if not more,


So you prefer the Desire to the iPhone. What does this story have to do with any of it, an opportunity to somehow bash the iPhone?

People will always want the iPhone just as people like us want an Android based device. Learn to live in a world with options :thumbsup:

i prefer to be able to use flash and not be dictated to by a 'jobs' worth

I think I could take a wild guess that this will happen again in Q2.

In Q3 the new iPhone will drop and iPhone will outsell all Android phones combined.

The same will happen in Q4.

In Q1 2011 Android will probably take the top spot.

And so on...

it used to be the other way around mate

unfortunately products like this are aimed at pretentious attention *****s
and the advertising and branding is creating more of them

i loved my iphone, but have moved on and cant see myself buying another in future

surrender monkeys always will, not me, if I buy a product use it and thinks it crap I will say so, even if it makes me a minority, i don't care its my life, not the woolly jumpers around me.

I can imagine not, but it may be a shortfall that a person could live with to have other specific features.

lol, yeah quote me on that
#35
I agree I use a phone for phoning and messaging ( all it needs is good reception, easily readable screen and volume). I have other gadgets that do a better job at other tasks. Although a smart phone would be nice.

It mattered that I was genuinely interested in what phone you have, not to argue with you but because I was curious. No need for the suspicion all the time.

Which one is the work phone?

Is there a price comparison vs features list?

Surely that is what matters.
