  Android certainly is fragmented and pales in comparison to iOS, but your numbers are way off. JellyBean is on 34%, not 11, Ice Cream Sandwich is 25% and 2.3 is down to 36%. In another month JellyBean should be the most used, still taking way too long for the most current version to be the most used. http://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html
  There isn't a place on the planet that is cool. It's also very gimmicky and un-Apple.

 I have the 15in rMBP. The Optical disk drive is a waste in a laptop, even in PC world Ultrabooks don't have them anymore either. Argument is dead in the water. The only optical disk people should need is maybe a Blu-Ray player for their TV. An external drive for the occasional time you need one is fine and does the job.

  I think if you're paying 650k you're not exactly worried about that.

Note: These minimum screen sizes were not as well defined prior to Android 3.0, so you may encounter some devices that are mis-classified between normal and large. These are also based on the physical resolution of the screen, so may vary across devices http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/screens_support.html   The metrics are generalities, not exacts. You can even see in the included image there's a good sized overlap a little beyond 4in, which is where...
    Samsung Group the conglomerate is private. Many of the subsidiaries are publicly traded companies. The most obvious is Samsung Electronics (being discussed here) which encompasses most of the consumer facing elements of Samsung. Samsung Electronics trades on the Korean exchange as well as ADR in London. There's been chatter about bringing it to the NASDAQ on and off in recent years. Samsung Life (Insurance), Engineering, Techwin, and Heavy Industries are also all...
