Samsung score a victory over Apple

Samsung has had a pretty rough couple of week following its loss to Apple in a California district court. Samsung was found guilty of infringing on various Apple design patents and was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages. To add insult to injury, Apple is looking to add the flagship Galaxy S III to the banned list in the U.S.
 
Even with all of that bad news swirling around Samsung, the South Korean company can at least take solace in the fact that its Galaxy S III has knocked the Apple iPhone 4S off its perch as the best-selling smartphone in America.

"We believe this is the first month since the iPhone 4S launched in October 2011 that it was not the top-selling smartphone in the U.S. market," said Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley.
 
However, Samsung's victory over Apple may be short-lived. Apple has officially confirmed a September 12 press event to announce the next generation iPhone. Sales will likely start towards the end of September.

Okay we'll remember that when you and Tony shoot huge sticky wads at us when the iPhone5 takes the sales crown from whatever older phones are out there.

So a couple months back when the 9+ month old iPhone 4s was outselling every other individual model -- even ones only a month or so old, your rationale was?

And when the iPhone 5 (or iPhone 4G or "the New iPhone or whatever Apple finally names it) is outselling every individual model of competing phones in November and December after several new Windows and Android based phones come out your statement will be what?

It's not that I believe the next iPhone will be the best phone out there (it won't) it's just that your rationale doesn't hold up.
