PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android and iOS, the number one and number two ranked smartphone operating systems worldwide, combined for 92.3% of all smartphone shipments during the first quarter of 2013 as Windows Phone crept past BlackBerry for 3rd place. According to the International Data Corporation Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, Android smartphone vendors and Apple shipped a total of 199.5 million units worldwide during 1Q13, up 59.1% from the 125.4 million units shipped during 1Q12." Windows Phone doubles from a few to twice few, iOS loser market share as its growth is slower than that of the overall market. BlackBerry continues slide into irrelevance.

Firefox and Opera for android are superb, the problem is more likely to be the dumbphone replacement droids.

That, or iPhone users somehow still think it's a status symbol, and not a reduced-feature device.

2006-04-22 would be mistaken....the iPhone users I know enjoy the ease of doing what they want or need to do on their device. It seems that some of the envious non iPhone types project their fashion statement hopes and dreams on the iPhone.

No... iPhone users just have to keep their device out for longer, because it takes more steps to actually perform tasks.
