Besides, whenever an Iphone is released, all it ever is, is a new body. Nothing really changes from phone to phone as far as functionality. New body, new processor, new screen, maybe more memory, but nothing else really innovating to make me want it. I got bored with IOS, even with jailbreaking them. All i got to say about the iphone 5 and furutre iphone releases, YAWN!

The thing is though when Apple does it, it tends to be perfectly executed. Like the copy/paste concept. Or the Safari browser.
I'm an Android guy, but you gotta admit it - Apple knows what they're doing. Course, some would say use what works. Personally, I think it's all about what's best and my Nexus S is just that

On topic: I see way more android phones in my travels than I do Iphones. It used to be the other way around. I don't think android is going anywhere. If nothing else, it will make android better as they up their game to stay ahead.

I'm sure a small number of Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and regional carrier customers settled for an Android device on a network that they prefer for better coverage and/or cost. Clearly, however, most Android users have been happy with their choice. Look at how much more successful Android has been than some of the earlier devices designed to compete with the iPhone, such as the BlackBerry Storm.
Also, VZW continues to gain Android customers even though they have the iPhone. No LTE in the next iPhone is going to hurt it, especially on Verizon. LTE is a big improvement over EV-DO, and as the technology matures and coverage expands, it will become more and more important.
Android is clearly doing well on AT&T as well since they are selling devices and marketing it... in fact, they seem to be pushing it even more now that they have lost iPhone exclusivity.
I see the current trend continuing for a while, which is that Apple fans and less technically inclined people will pick the iPhone, and the gadget lovers and tech enthusiasts will go for Android.
Will the next iPhone have some impact on Android's market share? Of course. Is it the end of the road for Android? Absolutely NOT.

Well, that settles it! I'm going to have to get a iPhone 5! The Analyst said it! It must be true!
On another note, I skipped the smartphone phase for awhile, because I was not impressed with the iPhone. The Droid was the first smartphone that I felt suited my needs. It also got Verizon a customer
