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.

What Apple tries to prove is that software (Android) + hardware (Samsung etc.) were copied after their innovations. And yes they (Google, Samsung etc.) built on top of that innovative Apple's stuff their integration with Internet services (where Apple never really played well). So Apple would probably try to say that people can not see what's copied but they just go after desires Apple (initially) made for them. I think that kind of argument is (still) the ultimate bullshit but that's how innovation today is defensed by innovators.
