Further to Shawn's response...

U.S Loadstone users make up a very small portion of the Loadstone 
community  and we are a world-wide project serving people everywhere.

Since Nokia has 50% of the world-wide share of mobile phones (most if not 
all running Symbian with only a subset running Series60) plus some other 
manufacturors using the Symbian platform I would have to strongly disagree 
about the world domination of Windows Mobile phones.  Where did you get 
your research from?
