In the News A fascinating difference in smartphone buying behaviour got highlighted today. In the US, Apple has double the market share of its nearest competitor, Samsung. However, in The Netherlands, the swamp I call home, the situation is completely reversed; Apple sits at 10% of the smartphone market, Samsung at 19.6%. Is this indicative of Europe as a whole? Could German, French, Polish, British, Spanish, Italian, etc. readers give local information from their own countries? I'm intrigued.

Denmark, a first mover-country in world/Europe, we usually get used as tryout-country before anyone else, because demographics shows us as a very average people, but small, avoiding big disasters when entering new products on world scene.

A recent survey (Gallup, Denmark) shows that Apple has has 37% share of smartphone market. Smartphone penetration is up to 2.1 million people from 1.2 yesteryear (we're app. 5.5 mill pop).

Sidenote: Tablet penetration is exploding in Denmark, 1/10 households have a tablet, mostly ipads!

How can "average" be the right with (almost) anything regarding Danish population? For example, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_top_international_rankings_by_... (fun list overall) cites that you have the most equal income distribution and highest minimum wage (dirty socialists! ;) ), together with highest "E-readiness" and Satisfaction with Life Index (plus, at the bottom of that page, there are tables classifying populations in numerous other ways - Denmark being near the top in most of those, quite unusual)
