If it's anything like the market here (one of the countries which passed 100% saturation a few years ago), then you'll start to see the networks start to get more and more aggressive in trying to entice people from other networks.

Great for the consumer; probably not great for the networks themselves.

I hope so, because they've been gouging us for a while now.

Seems like 100% of those who need phones have them. But pretty much every 8 year old little girl has a iphone or other smart phone it seems.

i'd suggest that you're looking at a very specific demographic


when i'm at uni, it seems like everyone has either a blackberry or an iPhone...while when i'm hanging with my high school friends, they still have the same nokia's...
