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.

Verizon results for the last quarter

Interesting results from Verizon for the quarter, now you get to see the iPhone (without the benefit of a cheap / prior version for sale) head to head with an entrenched Android base.

Activated 2.3 million iPhone 4's, which was less than Verizon was hoping for.

The shocking number was the Android number, in comparison.

"For the quarter, the company reported sales of 1.2 million LTE and Android devices, which includes tablets, smartphones and wireless modems."

Not what I was expecting (I expected Android to double the iPhone sales easy, more really..). Once the next iPhone is brought out, Verizon will have a cheap iPhone available (ATT does it for $49 + contract).

Here's the article:
