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.

you only have to take a quick look at the rest of the list there to see why the others are more popular. Come on, this is little to do with what is best and all to do with economics and making do with a cheap handset.

Perhaps something in-between ...economics, yes, but in the sense of what gives, and will continue to give, something very decent (at least nearly best) for great price; the best bang-per-buck (or pound in this case :p )

Exactly how PC won out in the end, and what is the likely future for Android.
