    18 million units worldwide, compared with 16.2 million

    The iPhone users I know are only sold on their large number of good apps. It won't last forever.

    I guess this should be a comparison to iPhone 5 or both iPhones..

    This is great news for microsoft which makes money on every Samsung sold.   Nice to have patent strength.

    But it also shows why Microsoft is making their own phone. Companies like Samsung make Windows Phones, but they push their own phone to be #1. Not sure why I keep reading people saying that Microsoft shouldn't upset their OEMs, when those same OEMs are mostly embracing the competition.

    My iPhone 4S has been an awesome device over the past year....no perceived need at this point for either an iPhone 5 or a Samsung S3. And, it's not just about apps...it's the coherent integration of the ecosystem that works well for users like me.....ymmv.

    Android has already displaced iOS as the #1 smartphone OS by a large margin worldwide (less so in the US). I don't think the iPhone as the market leader will last forever. Apple is not one to sit on the laurels though, they are always looking for new ways to reinvent what people think of technology.

    Maybe Apple will reinvent itself and make people think of technology as being useful again instead of being a fashion statement.
