What about iOS, Android, and Blackberry OS ? Shouldn't this be 4th Ecosystem?

They are referring to 3rd Ecosystem in the 4G LTE network.

Nope, iOS and Android are a given. Blackberry, despite the financial numbers in sells, are still loosing money and popularity as they move back to focusing on what they're good at, being used as government use phones. Windows Phone is still growing in popularity and is expected to overtake Blackberry for the third spot.

With that said, Blackberry will still be around for some time, just don't look for them to focus too much on features that we've become use to with other smartphone.

I wouldn't count Crackberry out just yet. I think they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. QNX is promising. Windows Phone sucks. It's a hard sell. No one wants it. Crackberry although not as popular, s...

I haven't counted them out. I actually hope they do pull through this slump. As for Windows Phones sucking.....we will have to agree to disagree. People who are properly informed on Windows Phone and actually give it a chance, do like the phone but, the decision to switch from their current phone to a Windows Phone isn't always an easy choice, considering that only one carrier really supports the phone, while others either carry only one first generation model. While it may not have all the customization that Android has, that doesn't make it any less likable or capable. Microsoft, I feel, actually did a lot of things right, when it comes to the OS. But, there is always room for improvement and it isn't for everyone.

Personally, I feel i...

Also people who care about REAL/PHYSICAL keyboards!!!
Manufacterers & carriers refuse to offer any choice.
There's still no follow up to the Samsung Stratosphere.

We need a 5-row keyboard, with 1gb of ram, 1.5ghz dual-core processor, and ICS. ACTUAL choices would be nice instead of an entire market with 4.3in ALL touchscren phones.

Isn't that what a business is suppose to be about? Offering consumers choice?

Supposed to be, but sadly..... I will say that I am a little annoyed that manufacturers seem to be getting as close as they can to mimicking a certain fruity device that will not be named. I've never wanted...um... that phone, so I certainly do not want an imitation of that phone. Let's see some variety, please.
