    I suspect with the iPhone 5 release the next 3 months will be dominated by iOS

    Dominated? Probably not. If Android just took a large amount of business from Blackberry that's probably the business and corporate community, they steal any from Apple. Sooner or later all the people who want an iPhone are going to have one, and most people can't afford to upgrade from an iPhone 3 to an iPhone 5.

    Does the iPhone 5 have 4G?

    Apple will get a small spike, but Andriod will continue to raise.

    While I do like Android, I think iOS comes with better bundled software. Android feels like it comes with feature-less applications if only to persuade you to find something better in their market. I would rather Android come with better applications from the start (EMail, Calculator, Text Messaging, etc)

    This is Apple fanactics we are talking about here, build it and they will buy. The iPhone 3GS and 4 ran out of stock in the first month or so, chances are its going to happen again for this release. Guess we will have to wait and see just how big the "small spike" will be.
