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.

First of all, only people who bought Android were surveyed.


Uh, yes of course. If you want to find out why people are purchasing the competitors product you don't ask the people who purchased your product.

Why am I pointing out, again, that I was talking about the spin Thom tried to serve up? I wasn't questioning the survey itself, I was pointing out facts that directly contradict the spin.

As a general request, if "you" aren't going to pay attention to what you're reading, don't waste anyones time with irrelevant replies.
