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.

Just because someone decides to write an article about phone sales doesn't mean that "they" are desperate to compare their phones favorably to an 11 month old phone.
The people you are criticizing-- supposedly android fanboys-- are a much smaller group than you may realize.
I own 2 android tablets and I don't consider myself a fanboy just because I found these devices cost/feature favorable to other tablet options. I'm just an hp Touchpad and Google Nexus 7 customer. ;)
