Motorola on the top and Nokia on the bottom – wow. And in between in that order: LG, Apple and BlackBerry. Wow again. The US does operate differently than the rest of the world! ;-) I wonder for how much longer that will hold true.

The following handsets all support Java ME / MIDP or BREW, SMS and mobile web browser applications; except for the iPhone of course.

    “The following handsets all support Java ME / MIDP, SMS and mobile web browser applications.” Do you mean they support ALL that?

    iPhone got no Java ME but sure SMS and mobile web ;-)
