Tongue in cheek: The smartphone market: is it my imagination or is it getting crowded in here?

Come on in, the water's fine. There's plenty of room for everyone. What's this? A party crasher? No problem. Welcome, welcome, welcome. Just find a seat in the back there somewhere.

Knock, knock. And who could that be? ZTE, Huawei, Lenovo, Tianyu! Well come on in. You've come this far. And what's this? Even more. Well, you can come in too, but I hope you brought your own booze. And your own hope.

And oh brother, who's this big guy at the door? Why it's Amazon. You already had an Android “appstore,” so I had a premonition you would show up. What's that you have there in your hands? A little Android-based tablet? Well, you qualify.

Yes, the entry of Amazon into the market marks some real changes going forward. The smartphone market: it's officially a jungle out there.

Things are starting to get rather crowded for sure. Something tells me this isn't going to end well.
