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.

Yep, sounds about right... and if you really don't care which OS you have, which one would you buy? QED.

I work in Gibraltar, live in Spain.

Everyone in Gib has lots of disposable income thanks to the fact that we all in live in Spain, pay fuck all tax and generally enjoy the low prices of everything in Spain compared to the UK/Gibraltar.

Pretty much everyone in the office of young professionals either has one of two things.

1) Nokia Dumb Phone (1661, 100 etc) ... people like me that don't give a shit.
2) iPhone 3, 4, 4S.
