The iPhone 4S will get a massive, record shattering number of sales but Android will just keep plugging at them from all directions, all year long. AT&T initially planned to deliver 12 Android phones in 2011. They’ve met that already and will exceed it by releasing at least 7 more Android powered phones and they have plans to release more. It’s a mix ranging from 600mhz phones to 1ghz dual cores.
While no single device will outsell the iPhone, they will all nip at it and in the aggregate overtake it. Anyway, let’s get to the new releases in the form of a video:
