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.

Once Verizon got iPhone it moved to 54% of their smartphone sales. Android is #1 because of t-mobile, MVNO... on both AT&T and Verizon Apple is a majority.

In terms of newest technology we can't be quite sure what that means but diversity works to the advantage of Android.
