My 13 year old sister was super happy to pick up a Lumia 900 this past summer. Although, her getting one defies the article as part of the reason she got it was because she was used to using my mom's Windows Phone.
WP also happens to be really different and exciting. Plus the variety of colors and themes is good for kids too, and the social integration.

My mother has an iPhone provided by her work and I tried using it a bit while home for Christmas this year. I can't stand it. The integration between the mac desktop and iPad is nice, but I don't care for the OS itself. I prefer WP8 or Android in comparison.My smartphone history.

Well the iphone is solid platform, the part only that has started to fall out is lack of innovations with good user experience off lately, on top the same icons (it has started to become boring) as opposed to live tiles which are UX wise way ahead than the ios icons, live tiles are cool and so are the equally live colors the phones come in..definitely suited for youngstersNokia Lumia 920 --||-- Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.0 7 --||-- MSI GT60

When i hold a iphone it's same old same old i used a ipod touch, iphone 4 and 4s a year ago but the user interface stays the same wich is kind of borring, i have to say even if it is borring it works good and the ecosystem is awesome just not innovating enough for me.

But here in Switzerland everybody uses an iPhone: the more iPhone 5, the better. Nonetheless I really start to feel, as if the iPhone just isn't this icon it once was anymore.

It was mostly a light hearted joke anyways, but I think there is a hint of truth to it as well. When something reaches the kinda widespreadedness that even the last people to adopt technology (grandparents) start to have them, it pretty much is as the state where it starts getting replaced within the young generation. It goes with everything that resembles cool or fashion. One day's fashion is another day's common clothing and then new trend comes in, set by a minority.
