    Nothing will ever be an iPhone Killer...because no one has 1) The Apple Name 2) The App Store 3) Jailbreak.

    Every phone is an iPhone killer apparently. It could be an amazing advance in technology but everyone would still buy the iPhone just because it's made by Apple.

    Specs wise, it's a great phone but imo it's ruined by Samsung's ugly UI. Why they can't just stick with vanilla Android i don't know.

    1. Who cares about a brand name other than fanboys?
    2. Android Marketplace
    3. Rooting is much easier and nicer on Android devices then it is on iDevices.

    1. If it's an iPhone, people will buy it - because it's an iPhone.
    2. I love Android but the Marketplace is nothing compared to the App Store.

    3. It's not easier but it's definately nicer.

    Honestly...there is no other phone that has a community as large and hardworking as the iPhone community...and the Android Marketplace is great but App Store has a head start and is obviously better. And you say "who cares about a brand name other than fanboys?" but...seroiusly...the iPad is the biggest piece of sh*t lol...its pretty much an iPhone without a phone and 1000x bigger lol...and they still sold that sh*t. No other company can pull off the sh*t that Apple does and thats a fact.

    I have a galaxy S and an iPhone 4 and I like them both. Still doesn't take away the fact I'm pissed at Mobile companies bringing phones out ever second D:

    How many droids have been released since this year is beyond me, never mind the fact Sharp are bringing out 3D phones...

    You my friend need to see xda developers, cyanogen, sdx developers, phandroid, etc. The communities for rooting and modifying all things Android is far far far larger than the iDevices will ever be.

    Calling the iPad a piece of sh*t is basically calling the iPhone/iPod Touch a piece of sh*t. Like you said, the iPad is just an iPhone minus the phone part; just to let you know, the phone part doesn't make the iPhone a magical device. And yes, the iPad is bigger than the iPhone. A bigger screen is better in some situations. Don't people like to get big TVs? Don't people like to get big monitors for their computers? And if you bring up the argument that the iPad can't fit in your pocket, show me one tablet that can.
