Apple "Apple's new iOS 7, which the company unveiled last week at its Worldwide Developer Conference, says a lot about the future of mobile devices because Apple owns the future of mobile devices." If you're an Apple fanatic, you're going to love this article. If you're not an Apple fanatic, you'll be shaking your head in disbelief that the once great AppleInsider runs stuff like this these days. Hey, there's always MacRumors - the last great bastion of proper Apple rumour reporting.

Its been my experience as well that a lot of Android users are there primarily because of cost, and that a good chunk of them aspire to own iOS devices.

I think its great that some people here like Android for its ideals. Open, free, yada, yada. However I don't think that sentiment is necessarily universal, or a significant driving factor in its adoption.

I've never heard a lay person say they love Android because its Linux, or because it has an SD Card, or a task manager, or can run an HTTP server or whatever.

People use Android because its flexible, cheap, and available. There's very little brand loyalty there (save for the Samsungistas)
