    I find it hard to believe that only 20% of android users will but another android phone. Personally I love mine, so does my wife and so do two of my friends. I don't know anyone that doesn't like their android phone. The only people I could see not liking android are people that think its to complex.

    you also have to consider all the different skins and hardware android is on, some people might not like touhwiz, but if they moved to htc might like sense. The common person most likely does not differentiate between the hardware/UI and the OS, which could hurt androids numbers. So while these people might be saying they will not buy another android, they might really be saying i am not going to by another samsung, htc, lg, or moto phone.

    Pure Fanboyism, from a site that promotes apple... I would love to come back to that link several years from now and compare Apple and Android's market share. From what that article says, Android should have a significantly less market share a few years from now since there is an 80% drop rate while Apple will have 80% repeat rate. Let's see if that holds true in 2-3 years from now. :p

    I think it's because the term "andriod" is not so appealing v iPhone.
    Andriods are something in movies which are made out to be monsters or stupid, great phone but not a good name in my opinion.
    I've even heard 1 iphone chap say, yeah desire may have beaten the iphone this month, but when froyo comes out you will throw you out of the window (fro yo)
    not impressed i did fire back and say at least i can hold my phone in the left hand and still make a call, he replied i am right handed not left handed.
    YES but you type with your right hand and hold it in your left - DO YOU NOT????

    Wow the editor is fighting with people on the comments about it. Real classy!! He also keeps linking to a CNN post that nowhere says 80% of android users plan to jump ship.

    Only 20%? I'd like to see the actual question they asked, and some of the answers they got. Perhaps it was something like "Would you buy *this* phone again?" ... to which 80% of the people said no, I'll buy the next best Android-powered phone, because no-one buys the same phone over, they upgrade, but if you lump iP3 and iP4 together as just "iPhone", then well.. you see where this is going.

    Dig deep.. follow the connections, see who actually authored the report CNN is quoting..

    Yankee Group - Carl Howe

    He also blogs in defense of Apple:

    http://blogs.yankeegroup.com/2010/07/14/get-a-grip-on-iphone-4-antenna-issues/

    The above is dated 2 days before Apple admitted to the problem.

    At this point, I'm going to say that the report is suspect at best. The author denied there was a problem with the iPhone 4's antennae, which Apple has since acknowledged by giving away free bumpers to work around the issue.

    My prediction is that by the end of this year, Android will have a larger percentage of the smartphone marketshare than Apple. Apple will never retake Android after that.

    By the end of 2011 it will. The rate android is growing its just a fact. Now if apple goes to verizon it will be an all out war. US Cellular just rolled out the first android phone for them. They are pretty big around the Midwest. I would bet by the end of 2010 Google is activating 200,000 android devices a day.

    OK.. I can't resist, one more post!

    Why we only cover the iPhone : Beatweek Magazine

    The more I read of this site, the more it sounds like it's written by some kid in his mother's basement, lol.

    If only HTC would make a Nexus 2 with plain vanilla Gingerbread UI, not Sense/TouchWiz nonsense that would sell millions.

    No-one even knows what Gingerbread will look like yet. It might be crap.

    Besides:

    New HTC Sense UI coming soon, Android Gingerbread be damned

    No matter what Google does, HTC, Motorola, Samsung, etc. are not going to be releasing phones that look exactly like each other except the phone itself is a different shape.

    Ford and Mazda make some of the same cars. Same power train, but they just have a different skin on them. Some people will only 'buy American' so will go for the Ford, some will refuse to buy any car made in America, and will go for the Mazda, but they're getting the same car underneath it all. Same thing really. If you took the same car and the only difference was the badge on the hood, then neither group would want to buy it.

    1: Its clear that the website is a apple site.
    2: Its also clear that the 4 out of 5 android users is a number he pulled out of his ass. He can only link to an article that doesnt even mention google or android.

    Although the survey was RELEASED this week, there's no mention of when it was conducted, or what questions were asked. I could easily get skewed results like they did if, during the weeks leading up to the iPhone 4 launch, I asked:

    • iPhone users: do you plan on buying another iPhone in the next 2 months?
    • Android users: do you plan on buying another Android phone in the next 2 months?

    The results would probably be even more skewed if the survey were conducted in AT&T retail stores. If my first exposure to Android was one of AT&T's offerings, I might have said no too!
