Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

An Android purchase is NOT Always a lost iPhone sale.
As has been said, there are different demographics in the phone market.
Those cheap android phones (eg Samsung Tocco Lite) will appeal to a very differeny buyer than an iPhone.

er um... Like me.
I want a phone. I want to send a few texts and do a bit of web browsing (weather, train times etc)
Yes I could lash out and buy an iPhone or any of the similarly priced Android devices. I have an iPod and two MacBooks so I'm not anti-apple but I've chosen a more basic phone because it does the job I want it to.

While I was browsing in my local stores the other day, I saw three phones being sold. They were all iPhone 4's. I know it is a statistically insignificant sample but one comment from one buyer was, Why are those HTC phones so expensive. Enough said?
