The top brand in this year's survey is Sony - just like last year - but with a few points less than last time around. The mantra seems bigger, the better if the latest offerings from major players are any indication. Better technology, sleek lines and viewing pleasure have tilted the scales in favour of LCD and plasma TVs.
Nokia was the first brand named by 30.02 per cent Omanis while only 25.3 per cent of expatriates did so. Meanwhile, 32.94 per cent of expatriates named BlackBerry first compared to 23.94 per cent of Omanis.
Nokia was the overall leader in last year's survey too but this year there has been a major dip in its points. While 46.64 per cent of Omanis plumped for Nokia last year, that percentage dips to 37.91 this time around.
