here is the article.
Verizon Reports Record IPhone Launch - Forbes.com
man, I dont know whats going to happen to Android now.
Wow, they sold out fast. I personally don't see the appeal of the iPhone, but it doesn't surprise me that they went that quickly. I think that the Android will give the iPhone a run for it's money for a long time though.
That is AWESOME....and it will be replace in less than 6 months with the new Iphone....wow....lots of people thinking this through huh?
I hear that. I don't like iphone's. I almost got one but then I stopped at the VZW store and played with one of the reps Droids.....never looked back. In fact I have converted 4 now....4 iphone owners to Android owners....it's really not that difficult.
Also, if you buy an iPhone you are guaranteed to get support for the full 2 years... you will have the newest OS and all. With android, you may never get an upgrade. (Looks at Devour and Cliq)
You call me names, I call your Mom!!
I mean on a particular handset. To me if i'm going to pay that much for a phone I want it to be around for a bit before they release an upgraded version of said phone. It would irritate me in a very big way if I bought the iphone 4 on vzw and then within a year the iphone 5 came out.
Yes I use Android now, and I know that they release a ton of android devices, but with so many different ones out there I was able to pick the one that suited me. With the iphone I feel like they are beating a dead horse. (I know my thinking doesn't make sense to all; but it makes sense to me.)
Personally I wouldn't. Own an iphone for one reason. Apples app approval crap. Basically I bought the phone let me decide what apps I want to put on it. Not what apple finds should be put on it.
the devil made me do it
1. late spring/summer new iphone and ios version drop - this is when you buy your phone
2. 1 year later system repeats with new phone and ios version - you are able to update to new ios version
3. 2 years after phone purchase new phone and ios version drop - your phone is not guaranteed to update to new ios version but your contract is up so you get the new phone with the new ios
4. continue to repeat cycle
oh and btw, droid1 released nov 9th 2009 if i remember correctly and the droid2 released august 12th 2010 i believe which if you realize are 9 months apart....
im glad apple is selling well on verizon, means more competition to push android and google harder to develop more quality software that outshines iOS. its been proven in other countries where the iphone is already on more then one carrier and android still has more sales
