iPhone Fatigue

Apple Inc's iconic iPhone is losing some of its lustre among Asia's well-heeled consumers in Singapore and Hong Kong, a victim of changing mobile habits and its own runaway success.
Driven by a combination of iPhone fatigue, a desire to be different and a plethora of competing devices, users are turning to other brands, notably those from Samsung Electronics Co Ltd , eating into Apple's market share.
In Singapore, Apple's products were so dominant in 2010 that more devices here ran its iOS operating system per capita than anywhere else in the world.
But StatCounter, which measures traffic collected across a network of 3 million websites, calculates that Apple's share of mobile devices in Singapore - iPad and iPhone - declined sharply last year.

Our iPhones are a family affair.
All of us on the AT&T 'family plan'
can text each other, call our home
phones free, use 'Face Time' for
free calls with video, etc.

This is especially nice because
some of our family lives overseas
including the two youngest grand-

Mrs. Jim uses an iPhone for her
cell phone ++. I use my iPhone for
free texting and exchanging photos,
again with overseas realatives,
all for free. My cell phone is a
flip open mode.

The kids all have iPads, even the
three-year-old has had hers since
she was two.
