cant say I know anyone with an S4 but know lots with an S3 on 24 month contracts
Considering most contracts are 2 years, I can say I am surprised it would affect sales of a new phone 12 month later and considering the numerous amounts of market research I have seen (and of all the people i know) people who buy Android powered phones are less likely to have money (or desire/stupidity) to purchase the latest and greatest each year compared to apple fans.
Re: Growing market...
"carves out 'niche' in tablets"
"We can't sell them no matter how hard we try, how do we put a positive spin on it"
On a plus note, we have loads of Ipads and Androids in my work, we are introducing a few surface devices and give them their due, they have been well received as useful devices and they are alot easier to manage :)
alot of the schools around my area buy lots of Ipads (despite being strapped for cash) so kids are taught alot about media consumption, i think it is a great idea to fill schools IT departments up with these things, the amount of kids that are still coming out of school into an office environment that have very poor IT skills is ridiculous.
In my school, our IT lessons consisted in how to use MS office and we had to follow specific instructions. I can safely say that I learnt nothing about computers in school.
Yey, hope it comes out in the UK, i have been looking for a top end 4" Android phone to replace my SGS i9000. the 4" form is perfect for me. Only thing that lets my phone down is that it is getting a little slow.
I was even considering Iphone. Now I can potentially have an amazing 4" phone without breaking the bank.
All the apple fans in my work are expecting more of the same so no one is overly excited.
I guess people assume Apple have become predictable/boring???
Hopefully they will release something that will blow everyone away but i think the current hardware is already really good, I think the visual evolution of the operating system has let it down a little as it has hardly changed in looks since the day it was released I will be interested to see what happens.
To AndrueC, I do alot of browser testing etc for my job, I must say, for all its faults (which there dont seem to be many compared to others), I have not personally experienced any slowdown or freezing.
I have it running on my personal laptop, which is the slowest in the world and it is so much faster than IE or chrome.
I think alot of the certification, especially the Microsoft Stuff isn't necessarily about learning how to use a computer etc, you are learning how to answer Microsoft's exam papers.
I have worked as a techie for over 10 years and still struggle to understand how they get some of their answers. I know alot of people just brain dump the lot which is a shame as my windows 2000 MCSE used to be quite a good qualification
