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.

You yourself wrote iPhone and combining all iPhone models into that whereas you decline to do the same for Android. I would say thats Apple's vs Oranges.


That's because the vast majority of iphones can and do run the latest iOS. This is one reason why I purchase the iPhone, Its capabilities grow with each iOS update. the Android phone you buy today is the same phone you will have two years down the road with few exceptions.

this does not even touch the malware issue which is another reason why I purchase iPhones for my family. While it is not imumne, it is _much_ less likely to become infected.
