OMG, there are here some pathetic trolls. Nokia Fanboy PRO said in 2010: Meego will take over the world, in 2011: WP7 will take over the world. WOW, really ?

And now that 5.2% (windows mobile most) will mutate in 52% next year ? Based on what ? on 5 phones priced at 500+ euros ?

Symbian is still dominating the world and Android in the US.... so it will take 2 years of stupendous progress by other OS-es to even match them really....

The reason why they sell is because of fraudulent ads that lies and deceives the public. The SGS2 is the most over rated and overhyped toy to come out of South Korea. I'm sorry but that's the truth.
