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.

technical skilled or not

He refers to vertical technical skills. If you are focused on a horizontal segment like apps only, and there is nothing wrong about it since focus is important too, then it does not apply.
But if either your horizontal skills are below the app-stack, like Kernel, or your skills are vertical so it includes things below the app-stack, like the kernel, then you are lost at iPhone cause you have no access to that segments. Its a black box whereas with Android you have the option (usually not as default but yes, you can) to go down and up all of your stack.
