PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You wouldn't believe it, but something actually, truly interesting came out of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit yesterday. Apple had conducted a survey to find out why, exactly, consumers opted to go with Android instead of the iPhone. The results are fascinating - not only do they seem to invalidate Apple's claims, they provide an unusual insight into consumer behaviour. The gist? People choose Android not because it's an iPhone copy - they choose it because of Android's unique characteristics.

While it is true that some carriers offer better service in certain areas. At the time of that survey, there was an exclusivity deal between Apple and ATT that prevented others from carrying the IPhone. It has not been until this last year that you could buy the IPhone on other carriers. The IPhone also was only GSM and the other large carriers (Sprint and Verizon) were CDMA.
