    Strange not to see HTC in the vendor list or are they not that popular in the USA. More than half of the people in my office own a HTC device now. Mostly Desire and Desire Hd owners.

    Remember the vendor list is for all handsets, not just smartphones.

    I'd agree with that statement. There is also a few Android Samsungs and few iphones and then me with an SE! The other half all have feature phones as pointed out.

    +1 on this, heck I was "forced" to buy a (2nd hand) X10 Mini Pro for a relative just to try and even up the numbers a little.

    Sometime think that SonyEricsson phone owners must feel a little like the 7th Cavalry at Little Bighorn.

    Don't suppose anyone has similar figures to these US-based ones for Europe - I suspect that the results will be considerably different.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
