Somehow, all the country bumpkin I see from the rural countries in the Philippines and India (and their children) somehow are able to fully exploit a Symbian smartphone, and yet all these wise cracking iPhone boys from North America cannot?

BlackBerry users can get it done, for e-mail and BBM. But definitely not the web. Or apps. Or media.
They will still sell close to 30 million devices for the quarter.
They can tell me the iPhone's a gimmick when their market share stops sliding. Nokia's has been dropping almost constantly since about... oh, June 2007.
Nope. She uses a Nokia bluetooth headset with the Galaxy Tab. It beats an iPad with an iPhone combination. Not to mention the Tab can become a mobile hotspot for her Macbook. The SIM for the Tab she got it off her Blackberry too. Look, she didn't need to trim it, or add a new contract.
The Galaxy Tab is a tablet, so she actually went for the small option unless she's trying to put it up to her ear for calls! We're talking phones here.
Wrong. You are so outdated here. Many Keitais got screens bigger than the iPhone. We are talking 3.7 to 4.3". That's only for the screen part. Point remains a lot of Japanese women got large keitais.
As for keitais, a lot of them are big because they're flip phones with ~3.5-inch screens. Plus, you can't really go for the masculine angle there -- these are the same ones who'll attach Hello Kitty ornaments to their phones, too. In North America and most notably the US, smartphone size is very much tied to this overcompensating male push. I have a 4.3-inch screen on my phone! It's massive! Rrrraaagh!
I can't see how an iPhone be the instrument of "getting things done" with the worst voice quality, the most dropped calls, and the most easiest to break hitting the ground.
