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.

People are image conscious about appearing cheap which is why you can't trust a survey like this one.

If Android phones were all $200 then you wouldn't see as many people buying them for these reasons.


I didn't pay more than $100 for any Android phone I owned. And I still liked them. Also, most of the points listed in the survey would be valid for me, but the price would also appear as a point: you can buy really great Android phones for the price of an iPhone (remember, I'm not talking only about the U.S. here).
