Despite been a Android user i would never wish Android monopolised the market, since the is no competitor, developer would hold us by our balls, with slow update & wouldn't care damn on our complain, remember those day when Symbian been the sold smartphone os ? let hope all of them compete against each other as this would benefiy consumer like us.
