    I have a question you briefly mentioned batteries but which has the better battery life?

    Did that video comparison honestly say that android would surpass iOS in terms of apps in a few months? And what about the landscape keyboard. Silliness I say! Although I have an iPhone 4 I do like android as well.

    I'm sorry, this is the worst commentating EVER. I thought it would get better after the Thunderbolt unboxing video, but it got worse.

    Wirefly, I ADVISE you to get a new video spokesman – for the sake of your company.
