iPhone: Beaten! Next Challenge: Blackberry

Im not an apple fan boy. In fact I hate them. But, its not much to be proud of. Android and Blackberry are sold across all carriers while iPhone is only sold on one carrier. Everyone in the US can access a Blackberry or Android because at&t, Veriz...
Don't think it will happen soon...Blackberry is an Industry Standard their devices are stable and perfect for business users. Calendar, email, personal data managementm need I go on.
At the end of the day....Android and iPhones are toys that make ca...

I'm not a very vindictive person, but I must admit that your post made me chuckle. Right out loud.

History Repeats Itself, Even in Cellphone World.

Anyone remember or study back in the 80's when Apple came up with this brilliant idea to make a computer that people could use in their home? Then Mr. Gates seen a business opportunity, why not buy DOS from IBM and create MS-DOS, push that OS to multiple manufacturers and sit back watching the wealth grow, all the while, Apple decided it was just going to do it's own thing with the Macintosh....

30 years later....

Apple creates an amazing iphone, it's new, it's sweet, it's innovative beyond what anyone has seen in cellphone world... Remember Mr.Gates? Now... Mr. Google sees a business opportunity, why not create an OS for cellphones that could bring the same innovative features, then push it to multiple manufacturers and sit back watc...

Its only a matter of time...

This is just the begining, can you imagine where Android will go from here. No matter what Apple does Android has to many manufactures under its system to fall behind. The battel will continue but I am sorry to say that Android will stand on top.
Don't be sorry, it's Apples fault, they keep releasing marginal upgrades to previous devices. People have grown tired of the rehashes and the closed OS. One of the issues is At&t, for the longest time At&t was blaming their subpar network on the deman...
it will fall behind, just like yesteryear... for the *EXACT* same reason.

Granted... Apple is still very profitable, and will undoubtedly continue to be so.

Look at Nintendo. It was dead last for multiple generations of video games, yet still m...

Um...that's not saying much...

That doesn't exactly impress me seeing as the iPhone has had 3 iterations, all on one network, whereas Android is on all the carriers in a few different iterations. When a single device with Android passes the iPhone, then I will think the world.
With all the media love for Apple this is a big deal. Open source will always win in the end. I have been trying to purchase an Incredible and the shipments are sold out. »
it says a lot to the developers building the apps. It's an OS thing, not an individual phone thing.

well the title is "Android Passes iPhone OS in U.S. Purchases" notice that Andorid is not a device, it's an OS, ...
Its OS vs OS, and people are recognizing that ANDROID is better than iphone. The iphone is over hyped and I am so happy ANDROID is taking off like this. stevo has to be burning in his seat. the new iphone looks like crap. OS 4.0 is not going to be eno...
What other smart phone do AT&T people go to other then the IPHONE? They have nothing else so why would you even pay for date on another device when you can have the IPHONE which is the best phone AT&T has?

Android has come on the market to sell its...

Same time last year....

The Blackberry passed the iPhone by the same basis. Verizon pushes the BOGO to inflate their unit sales of the Blackberry Storm- sales of which have practically ceased since. The Curve is the only thing keeping Blackberries in the running, and that's because they're 2010's Motorola RAZR.

Another thing worth mentioning is that many of Verizon's 'sales' are coming from exchanging Android handsets (not warranty replacements but customer handset exchanges for separate SKU's.)
It really surprises me that so many Blackberries we're sold last month, but like you said I would attribute a lot of it to bogo offers and Sprints offer to trade in any BB even if it's busted for a brand new one. I work in sales for AT&T and out of al...

Not surprising...

a multi carrier platform outselling 2 models on a single carrier isn't anything to gloat about.

Whats more entertaining is seeing that AT&T's customers replace their equipment more than any other carrier. Verizon has more customers yet AT&T sold more equipment. Does this prove that AT&T has low quality devices that require earlier upgrades or does it prove that AT&T's current line-up is better than their previous line-up?

It Appears...

History may repeat itself once again. Surprised
