Wow, robbery with knife or even firearm?! I'm scared...

I had read some time ago that the smartphone robberies are becoming progressively more violent. At first most of them were snatched off-guard. Now police say that they'll break your nose and take it -- seriously, getting a phone stolen sucks enough. Don't break my nose, bro!

Yeah it's totally shocking that smartphones and tablets are not stolen as much in third world countries. There's no way that there are more people walking around with $500 gadgets in San Fransico than a third world country for people to steal.
