    Guest, that isn't really a comparison that can be made. It would be comparable if there were only 1 model of Android phone.

    So I may just be able to get one? FINALLY!
  8. If Apple is ordering 26 million, they probably feel the demand is for about 30 million. They never want to produce enough phones or any other product, so there is always shortages. This is a great marketing maneuver to insure they can keep demand strong for their over priced phone offering. It is amazing that people still fall for this tactic, but there just Apple users and probably do not know any better.
