Legal Blah blah Apple whines about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

"Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android


Apple is the #1 smartphone vendor in the U.S. by units sold: http://www.bgr.com/2011/07/11/apple-is-no-1-smartphone-vendor-in-u-...

...

Apple is having no problem's competing in the marketplace, no matter how many times you claim they are.

If you were not so US centric, you'd see the writing on the wall, just like Apple does. There are countries where their market collapsed. Yes, vanished. They went from a 70% market share in Korea to basically 1-2%, while Android got itself a 95% market share. Check the trends in Taiwan and Japan as well. These are all "early-adopter" markets - trend setters, so to speak, especially in Asia.

This also tells quite a different story from NIELSEN:
