    Anyone read the article about the A6 chip inside the new IPhone? It's made by Samsung! So they national sued the company who developed the chip inside your new flagship phone? And you want to ban that manufacturer's flagship phone? Makes you wonder what direction Apple will go in without Jobs...

    It's not made by Samsung... It's made in the same 32nm LP HK+MG process architecture as Samsung chip sets but in reality no one in the market has a chip quite like it.. The A6 chips are apple made and designed. It's running two ARM cortex A15 cores. Great great processor and I'm a gsIII guy and I can honestly say that Apple beat Samsung and TI to bringing the A15s to the market

    Actually it's not a the ARM cortex we all thought it would be. Its actually Apple's own CPU processor take a look here:

    Do you have any idea how businesses work? Samsung has gone on record saying that they want to keep their handset and chip making business separate and not let the recent lawsuit and $1B fine affect their relationship with Apple because they make billions of dollars every year supplying components to Apple for the iPhone. The two Samsung business entities work almost like two independent companies and have nothing to do with each other.

    Yes exactly. Samsung and Apple make a lot of money together in that way.

    Did Apple sue Samsung Galaxy SIII or they just sue Samsung the entity? You can't sue a division or product line only the entity itself...e.g. Apple is ed!

    No one cares who it's made by...you are correct! But frivolous lawsuits between two mega powers that not only make no sense but clog up our court systems and cost tax payers money and consumers money! I care about that! Especially two multibillion dollar companies passing 20 dollar bills between them causing uproar...with Samsung and Apple laughing all the way to the bank

    Fabless manufacturing.

    Apple designs the chip they want. They pass that on to a company with an established foundry to produce their design - the cost for Apple (or anyone else) to build and establish one is too expensive.

    Apple designed yes but not Apple made. I just checked the A6 wiki and it too says it's made by Samsung. Apple doesn't have the facilities currently in place to churn out millions of microprocessors themselves.

    Stopped by my local ATT store mid-afternoon and there wasn't a single person in line to buy the iPhone, which given it's THE most popular phone in the area I live was surprising. So I briefly took a look at it and I have to say that they longer body with the same width actually gives the appearance of it being smaller, though it is much lighter. When I held my sexy red GS3 up side by side, it made the little iPhone look like a baby, LOL... Waaaaaahhhhh! Seems fast too though not much faster than the Galaxy.. Am VERY happy I jumped ship from Apple to Samsung.

    Samsung is a conglomerate made up of several different companies, all of which are separate. Apple sued samsungs mobile division. The semiconductor and screen divisions are separate.

    How would he look at one or use it if they sold out? Those placeholders don't have any electronics in them. The Wal-Mart near me had some this morning, still has most of them. They only sold 4. I gather unless you're in a big city area you could find one fairly easy.

    Not here man. If it works they sell it, the rest are the fake display kind only. The AT&T store here had some as well but I didn't ask them how many they sold or had left total.

    I bet apple paid for a good chunk of that if the capacity will only be for them.

    They can talk about the 2 million pre-orders all they want. I don't see the phone selling like they expect it to. The lines aren't as long as the pictures make it seem. Maybe a few stores in NY (my home town). Out here in Dallas, I don't see more than 10 people on line and the lines go away quickly. I was in a store yesterday and spent 20 minutes making comparisons with my S3. The screen is brighter and a tad bit clearer (could be due to the dpi advantage or the brightness). It shows whites better but the S3 has move vivid colors Imo. I feels weird to me compared to the 4s. I think they should have made it a little wider. Especially since it falls a little short of being an hd screen. The build quality is nice and I don't think it will break as easily as previous iPhone models.

    Apple will make more money hand over fist with the new iPhone 5, than Samsung with the GS3. I'd hardly call them stupid.

    Ever consider there aren't lines because they've sold out? There's not a point to waiting in line for something that isn't there.
