cell phone handsets marketshare .... samsung on the move ...

the bottom line - better products get better demand .... and that is precisely what samsung seems to be proving. i have been using a samsung handset for more than two years now, and currently i am in the market for a new one. there are none that come remotely close, and LG seems to be following similar lines and trying to make samsung clones. motorola comes a distant third in my list - and nokia doesn;t even show up. they just dont seem to have anything better than the phones that are handed out free when you purchase a plan - even the "high end" nokia phones suck! looks, usability, features - nokia phone generally seem quite sidey ....

the second quarter results just came out - samsung is the hottest name in the list - registering a scorching growth rate. nokia seems to be averting a slide, but its mundane portfolio will cost it if it does not improve (i have seen a lot of folks in india use nokia phones - is that true, or is it just me?) .... and motorola seems to be hanging in there, after a dominant first quarter performance.

what handsets do you use? and what do you think of them .... ?
