The US had less need for cell phones because of our very advanced wired network. Pretty much anywhere in the country not only could you get a landline but it would be turned on within a day or so of your request.

In places with a less robust wired phone network there was a shortage of lines and could often be a long wait before you phone was installed.

It was a lot easier (cheaper) to install a cell network than expand the landline infrastructure.

We get a lot of end of lease iPads where I work, the ones coming back from schools are usually pretty well trashed by the kids who used them (big surprise)! With my experience with Apple, (the company), when it was time for me to get a nice tablet I bought a Samsung.
