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.

They're a big corporation, they have lots of money, but they're still thinking like the little guys with 1% share of the market.


That's what makes Apple products so good!! Large corporations usually suck at innovation. Look at M$. There is a reason that most innovation comes from small companies. Apple has been able to hold onto that mind set. I just hope they can continue to do so.

Look at this column, you are saying "Android" vs "iPhone" You are comparing apples and oranges! You should compare iPhone's to Galaxy S3's. You cannot really compare iOS to Android since Most Android phones use an outdated version that will never get updated. Another consequence of its fragmentation. The Android market would be completely fragmented if it were not for Samsung's dominance.

You guy's don't get it! Apple makes one line of computers, one line of phones one line of ipods and they do them all very well! If they make 15 different phones none would be very good (see Samsung's phones).

Android phones continued success can only help Apple stay sharp.
