Samsung Galaxy S II commercials continue with two new videos

Samsung's been pretty busy on ad campaigns lately with the "dude you're a barista" and the "next big thing" commercials but today we have two brand new ones to share. You can say they are taking shots at Apple -- and they sort of are but in a subtle way. They've left out the goofy "Samsung'd" catchphrase and replaced it with a cute blonde flirting with iPhone users. Check them out after the break.

Samsung compares the iPhone 4S to their Galaxy S II

I don't know about you guys, but I think Samsung has a point to be made here, and that's the Galaxy S II hands down is just one awesome smartphone. After all the iPhone 4S news settled down yesterday (and quick), Samsung was nice enough to present us with a very informative spec sheet that should help anyone on the fence decide what smartphone is right for them. What we have is the ultimate Galaxy S II vs iPhone 4S comparison chart in the gallery below.

HTC Thunderbolt outsells iPhone 4 last month at Verizon

This is a little interesting, but at the same time I'm not all that surprised. The iPhone 4 is old news, It is old and doesn't even have 4G I mean common right. Well, according to the research firm ITG The HTC Thunderbolt outsold the iPhone 4 on Verizon last month. That is only on Verizon. Some might be waiting for that white iPhone, or the 5, but I think most likely it is that beautiful 4.3" screen and that little feature called "4G LTE" that is doing the selling.

Apple’s iOS has twice the reach of Android … for now

In result from a new study, Apple's iOS has twice the reach of Android in the US. But the results are a little deceiving as it focuses on iOS products which also include the iPad and iPod Touch. Factoring those in, Apple enjoys a user base of over 37 million, 59 percent higher than Android's user base of just under 24 million and only includes Android handsets and tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Apple's share of US mobile subscribers hovers around 16 percent, while Android subscribers are growing and are currently at around 10%, according to the comScore study.

Android ousts iPhone as most popular smartphone system in UK says latest survey

It's not just in the US where Android devices are out-selling Apple's iPhone. New research by Intelligent Environments, a digital banking provider, suggests that Android handsets in the UK are more popular than the iPhone, with 28-percent of the people they surveyed having a device running Google's OS. That's compared to 26-percent with an iPhone, and 14-percent with a BlackBerry. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, given Google is currently keeping its more advanced mapping features to itself, navigation and route planning is the most common application Android UK device owners take advantage of. It's worth bearing in mind that the iPhone is just one device, of course, versus multiple OEMs offering handsets running Android. Still, unlike in the US, in the UK the iPhone is currently offered across all of the major carriers, rather than being limited to one network.

HTC ThunderBolt Outsells iPhone 4 at Verizon

So you were wondering if it was wise to keep your launch-day ThunderBolt and you decided to hang on to it, yes? You though it was probably the best phone you'd ever owned in your entire life, and you wanted to be awesome, just like the thousands of other Verizon customers across the USA, right? Turns out you're VERY MUCH not alone in that, and you're beating the crap out of Apple while you're at it. That's right, HTC ThunderBolt is outselling the iPhone.

HTC ThunderBolt 10/24 Pattern Tipped for Release Date

We've received a tip from a fellow by the name of JR who has apparently recently had a chat with a friend of the family who works at corporate for Verizon. While we're not always jumping at attention for tips from friends of friends, if you know what I mean, this one smells like peanut butter, looks like peanut butter, and you know what? We think it's pretty much obvious that this is peanut butter. But before we get to the actual pattern she (the Verizon rep) gave that leads to the correct date, let's talk about what else she said, the funny stuff.

Is AT&T capping upload speeds on 4G phones?

There's a movement of angry Atrix fans who think that AT&T is capping upload speeds dramatically on the Atrix 4G. Comparing the new Motorola handset, users can see by using apps like SpeedTest that the Atrix 4G is not only uploading data slower than the iPhone on the same network (to the tune of 4-10 times slower) but is also dropping calls more often (a shock considering the iPhone 4's penchant at reception issues). Users of both phones pay the same cost in data rates, but the Atrix 4G is being clocked by users at uploading no faster than 300 kpbs. Does the evidence show that AT&T is capping upload speeds?

Waves of Impact and No Lines for Verizon’s iPhone

If you'll take a quick look at the video below, you'll see my local Apple store, the one that's about 15 miles away from the place where I'm sitting right now, filmed by intrepid Apple phone lover's friend or relative ojezap. This Apple store is located in the Mall of America, aka one of the largest malls in the entire world, right here in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. What you'll notice is that there's two people walking into the store and a relatively giant hoard of Apple workers inside the store cheering for them. What's going on here?
