Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

*sigh* the reason for the meteoric growth in Europe is price.

Not so. Here's a conversation that I recently overheard in Carphone Warehouse in the UK:

"I'd like to buy an iPhone, please"

"Fantastic; it's a great phone. But before you make your mind up, let me show you some of these Android phones. They let you do everything that an iPhone does, but, in my opinion, they're more powerful and you can choose from a range of different handsets"

"Really? I've never hear of Android. Are they really as good as an iPhone"

"Yes. I use one myself, and it's brilliant. Let me show you and you can make your own mind up."

Fifteen minutes later the customer was signing a contract for a top end Android phone. Price wasn't even mentioned as a benefit.

Sales people tend to sell what they believe in. And Android is winning the hearts and minds of the UK's mobile phone sales force.

Wrong.
The sales droid (pun intended) will sell whatever gets them the most commission at the end of the day.

My guess is he ran out of iPhones.
