@MtDewFella Its definitely a good way to look at it. Not to mention "interest" does not correlate to actually doing. I have an interest in buying a windows 8 tablet, will I do it? Probably not. I am happy with my current one, and usually only buy once a year for tablets. Not to mention that many developers will develop for multiple platforms, so this information might be more interesting and telling if we talk about "unique" developers. People developing for only one platform. Which is common for new starters who are entering the development world. Also, we have to determine was counts as a "developer" and an "app" and so on. There are many ebooks on all markets that can be counted as being from "developers", and also, many developers will make multiple apps. ..... So, in short, this data is like those fun math questions in elementary school where you got to choose "D. Not enough information"

@RaduTanasescu I have disabled members of my family, particularly a quadriplegic uncle, who used Apple for hands free siri use. You complain about rooting, and he had to jailbreak to make siri voice activated cause the Apple guy lied to him and told him siri was completely hands free. Not to mention all the 'service calls' i get to fix the issues he has with it. Its about as "disabled friendly" as a tin can and string. My Uncle and his caregivers wish they had taken it back within the buyers remorse period.

This is not new. In fact, many third party accessory makers were backstabbed by apple on things like a/v cords. Before ios 5 you could use just about any random companies a/v cords to the same effect as apples 2+ times the cost ones. However, iOS 5 comes out and suddenly those old ones do not work, and you have to buy the apple brand ones with the chip inside them to have it work. Not to mention some TVs and other electronics did not work because they did not conform to apple. Some samsung HDTVs for example.

@iLoveLiveUnique complex does not equal poorly written. In fact, complex typically means well written and coded because you are able to make something with complexity and have it function as intended. If you have to cut out very basic parts of your programming until you "get it right" and that part of programming is something everyone else "got right" years ago (*ahem* panorama.....*ahem* notifications)....maybe you should take a step back at the skills of the people doing the job.

@GSTurn @iLoveLiveUnique I couldn't stand using iOS for a week, let alone a year. I actually tried the iphone, the ipod, the ipad, and the mbp. Multiple models, mind you. .... I would rather use a blackberry from 2004 than use ANY iOS product for a year. Now, of course, this is all preference. If simplicity makes you happy, then go for it. ...but shouldn't that bother you? That the biggest selling point you can think of is how basic it is? My three year can handle android (on tablets and phones) with ease. He can install apps, change folder names, customize the settings, change backgrounds, and more. This is a THREE YEAR OLD we are talking about. How hard can something really be if a three year old can do it? So, if you are saying that android is too complex for you...remember...you are saying that its too complex for you when it is not for a three year old. Just let that sink in...you have trouble with something a three year old has no trouble with. Thats like you saying that legos are too complex and so you will stick with megablocks. Complexity adds functionality. Android handles complexity very well. It doesnt have to cut out things just because it cant handle it or because its afraid its consumers are too stupid to handle it. Once again...how hard can it be if a three year old can do it. I am talking about multiple builds, skins, and versions of android. Tablet and phones.
@Nate B Apple is cracking down on third party manufacturers making unapproved apple products. There will still be makers, but Apple is doing things to stop them. Like updates to iOS that make a/v cords that are not made by apple with the installed microchip in them, will not work. This is backwards compatible too, impacting older ipods and iphones. They made the new connector to make money...money for apple...not third parties lol

fyi, i know the quote said "single handed" but the context is meant to imply that people like smaller screens, while we know this to be false.

From article: " The majority of consumers find the larger devices uncomfortable to use single-handed."
I find it funny how much inaccurate info is used in this article to try and make the iphone sound better. When in fact a recent PHONEDOG MEDIA ARTICLE proclaimed: "Study Shows Customers Like Bigger Screens" http://www.droiddog.com/android-blog/2012/09/study-shows-customers-like-bigger-screens/

Actually, the majority are people leaving iOS for Android. Because quality is not a stale, outdated OS with the same design for years.
@Steebie @geoffott I have to recommend that both of you setup the Axiom rom on your device. Not only is it great for many little things, but it triples battery life. The phone lasts for hours and hours and hours doing normally battery draining things. I have actually had it on less than 5% power and last me a few hours still with use. I left it sitting on the counter as a wifi hotspot, and forgot about it (it was by no means at a full charge to start) and it was still running come morning, with plenty of juice left.
just a recommendation :)

"What should Apple do?"....are you kidding me. You make it sound like Apple is some kind of Hero that is going to swoop in and make it all better. Truth is, Apple is probably the one pushing for this. I wouldn't be surprised if the reports about better wages was faked. Kind of like Walmart does (if you check out some of the walmart documentaries and research the info you will find the ways walmart avoids negative reviews of foreign work sites). If Apple really cared, they would be moving the jobs to the US

Its still screwing people out of their money by making them fork over money for adapters. People are going to need to keep adapters with each accessory or start carrying an adapter around with their phone. Think about someone that has an iphone alarm clock in their bedroom, and one at work, and a car setup, and also a setup for a/v connection to their tv, and more. All this does is weasel people out of more money.Also, what about all the people that don't want to use an adapter for their accessory. Like people who have radios and docks for the iphone, that now won't be able to dock their phone right because they have to use an additional cord.
If Apple wanted to really be innovative, they would spend more time thinking of ways to make their product better, and less time thinking of ways to cheat people out of money. C'mon apple, stop being so dang stingy and let people have a universal micro usb port.

I gotta say, as much as I do not like Apple and know there is far more Bark to their Bite (they advertise more than what the product really is)....I do hope they finally get something right. People are going to be hyped up over the phone even if Apple just announces a ton can with a string attached. I hope Apple at least gives them something to be truly hyped about, not a bunch of halfway stolen features from other devices and some added app that was bought from an independent developer. Actually hope they have some real innovations. Something Apple has been lacking for quite a while now. That way I don't have to listen to comments like "My iPhone has a 4" screen so its better than everyone else now" or "The new iPhone 5 will have a new faster charger so now I get the privilege of buying all new accessories to fit the port". a 4 inch screen and lte alone are not going to be enough to make this device truly innovative. They are going to need a lot more than that.

Too bad the ipad doesnt support inductive styli. The s pen on the new windows devices and android phones and tablets beats out any stylus hands down. Its a night and day difference, and trust me...Ive tried sooo many styli. Bamboo, amazon, ayl, adonis, and so many others. Even screwed around with homemade ones. I can actually write in size 2 font with the s pen and have it legible.
