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.

The "people buy Android because it is cheap" argument has 0 weight in the US. With our 2 year agreements, all phones cost about the same. You can get an Iphone 4 on Verizon for free right now with a 2 year agreement. Top of the line phones are $200, the iphone 5 is the same price as a S4 or RZR MAXX. Yet they still sell lots of Android devices. There may be some people that buy phone because their cheap, but a lot of the time they buy iphones. I know plenty of people that bought 3GS's when the 4S was out because it was free.

People buy Apple phones for lots of reasons, and people buy Android phones for lots of, presumably different, reasons. Trying to pigeon hole them into stereotypes just doesn't work.
