    The sad thing is that there are many people who associate "biggest" with another word in the English language - best.


    Which is patently far from reality.

    Long time nokia fan (last phone was an n900 - you had to work to even find those) and I recently switched to the samsung galaxy nexus. I prefer the nexus, I just miss the hardware keyboard.


    Nokia, come back. I miss you. You were the best.


    Now, I hate to say it, but samsung might just be that :/

    Some cheap versions of the galaxy are just on the line of being called "smartphone". I wonder how many equivalents to the iphone are they selling...
