I suppose you think people are supposed to "upgrade" from an ipod nano to an ipod shuffle, and that they are both in the same market segment as the ipod touch?
Yeah, some people are blindly apple-hating here, just like people blindly samsung hate in samsung threads (or in this case, you, in this thread). These people
fanbois will continue to hate on everything that isn't their phone company of choice
baby. Ignore them.
Those of us saying that this particular concept which this particular thread is about aren't apple haters, we are just pragmatists. Phones are not airplanes, and they do not benefit from the features found on airplanes. They DO benefit from cases. Doesn't matter what company makes the phone, the same still applies.
They still released 43 phones in the same time it took Apple to release 2 phones.
Just the flagship phones then.
iPhone 4 - June 2010
iPhone 4S - October 2011 (1 year, 4 months)
iPhone 5 - September 2012 (11 months)
iPhone 5S/6 - Q3-Q4 2013 (unconfirmed)
SGS - June 2010
SGS2 - May 2011 (11 months)
SGS3 - May 2012 (12 months)
SGS4 - TBA 2013
And who said I hated Samsung? I actually do like a few of their products, I just hate it when Samsung/whatever other company "fanboys" claim Apple is milking their customers while their beloved company which doesn't actually care about them, only their money is doing exactly the same thing.
As for that last paragraph, read this

The best example I have seen of blind Apple hate on OCN is when Apple donated $2.5 million to charity.
You should also read the last bit of that post I quoted.
Yes, we are milking you but do the math."
