Well, in all honesty, Apple still has the best selling smartphone, undisputed. Granted, the 127 different models Samsung produces are selling more, but Apple makes three phones in the top 6, just like Samsung. The iPhone 5c is the #1.

You cannot change the source of an image in CSS. SRC is an html attribute that cannot be overriden. What you can do in CSS is change a background image, but not the primary image. While they render approximately the same, there are a few differences that make background images unsuitable for some purposes, SEO being one of them.

As for serving different content for different user agents, good luck maintaining your database of screen size and densities per UA string, not mentionning that Apple does server the same UA whatever the model of iPhone you have (which can include different sizes and densities).

Because of the size of the population (which exceeds that of all Europe)

It always surprise me how americans see the world: in their head.

Europe: population is 742 millions
USA: population is 352 millions

Yes, there are people outside the USA, and MUCH MUCH more than inside. And you still don't know it and display your ignorance right out there for everyone to see... Nice job, really.

Well, they may be self contained (which is not true because NIC drivers interact directly with the network stack for example) and small, but they are also highly untestable and undocumented.

What I see is a stack to fix and a continuous stream of drivers to write. The one shot operation is bound to be cheaper on the long term.
