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.

That's what makes Apple products so good!! Large corporations usually suck at innovation. Look at M$.


While I agree with the rest of the arguments of your post, I think that you got it wrong on this one. 'M$' doesn't suck at innovation. The Windows Phone 7 UI/ the Metro tiles thing is the first decent attempt to reinvent the phone UI since the iPhone. I agree that the Android UI doesn't really innovate, but Microsoft has been quite innovative lately. Honestly I wish they get a better chance over here. They deserve to sit a the big boys table with Apple and Google and their product is quite good. Furthermore, while I'm an "Apple fanboy" by some definitions, I think that more competition is good as long as Apple is able to keep innovating at the same rate.
