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.

The point is that people didn't buy Android phones because they wanted a cheaper iPhone knock-off, they bought Android phones because they were better than the iPhone. The key is that they bought Android phones because of the differences, not the similarity.

Wrong, at least in my case. I bought an Android phone because I want Linux, and, *gasp*... I did NOT want to buy a motherfucking Apple device. Sorry, but I hate the company. But I have no major problems with Google, so BOOM! An Android device is obvious.
