iPhone vs. Galaxy S3: The numbers are in

Apple announced the financial results for Q3 2012 on Tuesday, and just as expected, the numbers didn't disappoint. And while the 26 million iPhones sold for the quarter represents a 28 percent unit increase over Q3 2011, that number is noticeably less than it was just last quarter. In Q2 2012, Apple reported that it sold 35.1 million iPhones, representing a whopping 88 percent growth over Q2 2011. That's quite a drop over just one quarter, but it's not a surprising one. We've also recently seen iPhone activations decrease with major mobile carriers like AT&T and Verizon. While fans of rival handsets might be quick to smirk at this one —it's really not as bad as it sounds. The decline in sales and activations has a lot to do with the fact that folks are waiting it out for the soon-to-be-released iPhone 5. It may also be a factor in why Samsung's Galaxy S3 sales have been so strong. In less than two months the company sold 10 million units of its Galaxy S3 (a number that its S2 predecessor took nearly five months to reach after its initial launch). Samsung will likely continue to do well in S3 sales as long as Apple's iPhone 5 is still under wraps. It should be noted here that Apple's iPhone sales account for all versions, and not just the most current 4S model. So, while Apple's smartphone sales are more than twice the amount of Galaxy S3 sales, that number isn't exactly perfect. We're excited to see the real contrast in these rival smartphone sales when the iPhone 5 officially launches (by the way, we're now hearing that's slated for a September date). While we're waiting, let us know what you think. Did you pick up the GS3, or are you holding out for the sixth-gen iPhone? 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy
