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.

I would have the N950 (with QWERTY!) now, but it was/is almost impossible to get. We'll see what Jolla comes up with. I've written for the earlier Maemo, and if the ecosystem wasn't almost extinct (I still love my n810 wimax - I'd like the wimax better if it wasn't superceeded by my Mifi hotspot).

Apple has turned to barritry (8th circle of hell, 5th pit IIRC) instead of innovation.

Microsoft ... QED.

Maybe Tizen?

Or Blackberry 10. Note it is the perfect ten, to avoid being gored by someone else's OsX.

As long as Android can be rooted, I'll be rooting for Android.

Sometimes the lesser evil wins.
