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.

Now, people still buy Android because their friends also have Android and thei can share the same experience. Apple had its time but the limitations killed the effort and now Android is simply taken over the market and people buy it because it is familiar.

Just luike Microsoft captured the desktop market. At one point Microsoft was an easy way out and at some point forward it was the software that people knew and that was the reason for the sales.
