I'm lucky. My financial situation allows me to buy several phones and tablets every year to keep up with the goings-on of all the major - and some of the minor - platforms currently competing for prime real estate in your precious pockets. It also means that I am lucky from a psychological point of view - by being able to buy several devices every year, I never fall into the all-too-common trap of choice-supportive bias. I don't have to rationalise my device purchases after the fact, so I won't have to employ all sorts of mental gymnastics to solve any states of cognitive dissonance caused by hardware and software flaws - the number one cause of irrational fanboyism.

And so, I try to rotate my phone of choice around as much as possible. I enjoy jumping from Android to my N9, then onwards to Sailfish, back to Android, and then have some fun with Symbian on my E7 - and beyond. I've got a long list of platforms I want to add to the collection - one white BlackBerry Passport please - but in general, I'm pretty well-rounded.

You'll receive a medal for participating in destroying of our NATURAL HABITAT.

Considering I work from home, in a tiny country where everything is close by and I barely have to use my car at all, I think my contribution to "destroying of our NATURAL HABITAT" is exceptionally minimal when compared to just about everyone else in the western world.

On top of that, I live in The Netherlands. There's nothing natural about the land my house is built on in the first place, because my ancestors BUILT this land from the sea.

But you still can't get a fully supported hardware for the review of RISC OS? ;p
