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 had a two-year head start in the smartphone and tablet arena. Maybe you could cite some sources explaining how 40% market share is a spectacular failure. "

The key difference is that Apple has done it all themselves while google Android is being sold by so many companies and "versions" that it would be strange if that were not the case.

It would be more interesting to pick out ONE of the android phone makers and start to compare them to apple, i would see that as an more valid compare.
