From my personal experience. I have been trying to get hold of a 4Gs iPhone with any capacity and in any colur but can't find it anywhere in London and my service providers (O2 UK) can't supply an upgrade because they don't have any handsets in stock. On the other hand Samsung and Nokia phones are offered for free on cheap tariffs everywhere. This is non-news to us because these cheap handsets are sold bucket-loads in the Far East and South Asia. Cheap would always sell more, specially in countries with huge populations.
Define "cheap" pretty please.
Galaxy II has MSRP of 649 Euro (street price of about 450 Euro).
That is by no means "cheap" nor for UK, neither for anywhere else.
Nokia makes great hardware, but haven't harnessed dumb animations, hence is badmouthed everywhere in the world, on top of being badmouthed in US for, you know, not being a US company...
