Yes Samsung has a new phone out, and its called the Gallaxy 111s, and it has voice help called S Voice and not its not a Siri Rip off, ( if you say that 50 times fast) you may actually believe it.

Well, what would it be Samsung S111 or III or the new Iphone?

Will I do like you Ken, buy a Samsung then regret it (yet again) or get the Iphone? I shall wait for the specs on the new Iphone. But I must say that this new beast looks interesting. Especially when you are in the market for a decent phone.

I'm the same. Much as I love Apple and it's very well managed "walled garden" I do miss the fun of being able to do what I want how I want with a device.

There's no way I'd get an Android phone. I find a Windows phone a promising proposition however.
You might not know it to look at me, but I'm pretty radical.

Yes, same here. Am very interested in The Xbox integration.

I am with you J here, but honestly after being a fan of Nokia for years, then got I phone...sold it and got a Nokia again, in spite of the the "walled garden of Apple" ( and I agree there) , I think in the end they do beat the rest. Looks, marketing, the inside of it all, the simplicity is what I like in the end. I know I whinged about my Iphone 4 but really after all, I must admit that I do miss it. Nokia updated their software last night and tho it looks better and feel different, I still will get another Iphone. I am saving for it.

Jamie, its more open than Apple.....

What a load of you know what!

It's funny, mobile phones started off as bricks, then went small and now they are heading back to being a brick.

4.8 inch screen.... Pathetic... Too big... It's a phone, not a tablet!

I would be happy with the next iPhone staying at 3.5 inches.

But!!! Ever other smart phone on the market can do that JZ, so really the iPhone has become rather dated, based on your list.

Yeah but years ago the iPhone was cutting edge, now you look at how far android has come, and apple are asleep at he wheel, if they were still on the ball Samsung wouldn't have sold 44 million phones last quarter to apples 32 million.

But it's not about being dated. Everyone was posting that the iPhone was restricted in the walled garden. Why is it restricted and what can these other phones do?

It is restricted, unless you jail break it, you can't do many of the cool things you can do on an android phone.
