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.

That's if you forget the very first iPhone was shitty: no 3G, no bluetooth, no video, shitty battery life. It was, well, an iPod Touch that could make calls.

It had both bluetooth, and when compared to other 'smart phones' insanely good battery life. It could not be an iPod Touch, because that didn't exist when the iPhone was launched.

I want a pair of those rose-coloured glasses you're wearing.
