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 have shown that you do not need a monopoly to be profitable.

Did they show that? Their return was really more about the music shop (where they have sort of a monopoly position) than their traditional product lines - and iOS devices are also more blood relatives of iPods.
