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.

Apple only sells one phone. Sure you can get that phone with a better or worse screen, faster or slower CPU and more or less storage, but they are, for all intents and purposes, the same phone.

All of Apple's phones have the same basic form factor. Samsung on the other hand offer 4 base form factors for their smart phones (small, small and waterproof, medium and large). The difference between the Xcover and the Note is far more significant than just the fact that the Note has a faster CPU and higher resolution screen. The same can hardly be said for the difference between the 3gs and 4s.

In addition to this Samsung also has a large Array of simpler non-smart phones, starting from less than $30 brand new and off contract, if you're into that sort of thing.
