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.

Don't jump on the PR bandwagon (and only in some places, it seems...) of calling HSPA+ "4G"...

Anyway, speeds ("4G" or not) are not that crucial - if you think a nominally higher-rated iPhone will change trends, you're in for a surprise. Plus "4G" is, in practice, more about stuffing more people into the available spectrum.
