I see more green eyes joining the army.

KingPin2867d ago

thats what happens when you focus more on lawsuits and less on product development.

dilawer2867d ago

I think this is because more manufacturers have embraced Android while iOS is only limited to one company only.

off-topic: Android ftw! :D

Android is just an open-source iOS clone.....it would be surprising if it wasn't leading in marketshare.

iOS clone... uh, does that make iOS a clone of... you know, UNIX?

Answer, no it doesn't, it's just as equally ridiculous a comparison.

that's just the sad isheep excuse because apple is actually playing catch up by adopting or "copying" android ui features

fatstarr2866d ago

Lmao, All my comments on the internet have been leading up to this moment.

Death to Apple.

the only downside is that all the apple plebs migrate over to android and casual this shit up...

That's pretty sad.

Hey, he has a long-term goal with his internet comments. That's more than what we can say, lol.

thebudgetgamer2866d ago

So an operating system that is on countless super cheap phones has more market than one phone?

That's amazing.

MidnytRain2866d ago

The point is that iOS used to have a lot more.

SilentNegotiator2866d ago

The real question is whether or not it actually lost volume of its own product being used out there, or if Android just gained that many new devices.

blackmanone2866d ago

I find it more amazing that so many people adopted a format that's all about taking your ownership rights away.

SilentNegotiator2866d ago

It's crazy to think that iOS still rakes in over 2x as much app revenue despite the fact.
