..will buy iPhones as feverishly as the buy BMWs and Mercedess."
assuming you mean Mercedes then if you ever bought one of those over priced pieces of crap then you'd know you were talking utter BOLLOCKS
go ahead & buy a western badged, over priced piece of crap made in cheap labour countries (to the major detriment of workers there) but please don't fool yourself about the quality eh?
wish I had a £1 (or €1.20) for every iPhone user I had heard screaming at their phone for being unable to pick up a call / hold onto a call
TBH if my Nokia 6210 had BT (for hands free car use) it would never have left my side, I have a basic BB now and does all I need - BT connection / battery life / address push / basic calendar functions, just a shame it doesn't go all week without charging
