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.

Explain? Are you saying that Apple is the only cellco-subsidized brand in Australia? Are you saying that someone who wants a Samsung must pay in hundreds of dollars while you can walk out with an iPhone for free?

Didn't think so. Stopping subsidies will slow down sales of all phones as people hang on to their existing handsets for another year. Which might not be a bad thing for the environment.
