PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "For a seventh consecutive month, the Samsung Galaxy S III is the most popular smartphone in the United Kingdom. The data compiled by uSwitch is based on live searches, pre-orders, as well as postpaid sales. Curiously, Apple's current smartphone flagship is not even second. The iPhone 5 is outperformed by its predecessor, whose lower price and improved contract offers helped it remain appealing. The Samsung Galaxy S II completes the quartet at the top. The rest of the top ten smartphones is entirely an Android party. It includes the Google Nexus 4, who entered the rankings a solid fifth. The second half of the top ten includes the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia U, HTC One X, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2." This is getting ridiculous, and it's not good for the market. For the love of Fiona, people, buy something that's not Android. I don't want to live in an Android-dominated smartphone world.

Now really, you're also avoiding the elephant in the room. Diversity, liberty of choice.

Where can I get a native Opera browser for iOS? Or Firefox for iOS? Or VLC for iOS? You get the point.

Yes, if you are a parent you should be given parental controls to make sure your child doesn't install dangerous apps. After all, you have to take care of your children. It's like not allowing them near guns so that they don't get hurt.

Blocking everyone from using supposedly dangerous apps is not the way to go.

But, to each his own.
