    I would not choose IOS, for the simple reason that I believe there should be competition in the marketplace. BB10, would be one option, however the best option would be several Windows, BB10, Symbian, thus increasing innovation through competition. Any one company with no competition would become complacent, and charge what they want for their product. Since Apple has been on top and is not hungry for product share how innovative has it new releases been in comparison to when it was breaking into the market? Same with Blackberry whilst no-one could touch them they had control, nothing really new came out. Apple charges what they want people buy, Android manufacturers do not have the same advantage, they have to be competitive.

    So as I said I would want to see a number of systems fighting for the Android share, maybe we would see something really good come out of the fight.

    The one I want has still to be invented. But I wouldn't know of it... and I would want something else.

    JK.

    It would be awful... Everyone would go back to RIM or pick up a Windows phone, and say "they aint that bad". The Android crowd that can't stomach anything else will start claiming that smartphones are overrated and that we as a society don't need them anymore. The rest will moan and groan and claim Apple as a monopoly, and I would surely go insane from reading it all.

    The folks who claim "Apple is a monopoly" would file lawsuits.

    I tell you, the worst thing to have would be a monopoly it doesn't matter which company it was.

    iOS. I´m not familiar either with WP and somehow it just doesn´t do it for me. I was also quite unsure whether to go with Android or iOS in the first place.
