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.

OK, Jelly Bean on the Galaxy Nexus with the old 1.2ghz TI OMAP CPU is faster than the iPhone 4s with OS5 and with OS6 beta. There are videos all over you tube comparing the two. Go see for yourself or just STFU.

It is NOT faster, but finally it stopped skipping when scrolling through browser pages it seems. So it just caught up with the iPhone...after 5 years I guess that's an accomplishment

You could say the same thing about the 4 inch screen and 4G on the iPhone 5 now Apple is catching up. It is what it is, so lets not pretend it isnt.
