    Piper's Survey

    That is not what the report says. What a dolt. 9 out of10 Android users want an iPhone next time they upgrade.

      • They may love their androids vs RIMM or os7 MSFT products, but if you tell them, boys, would you rather have an iPhone 5, it'll be interesting to see what they tell you. Seriously now jeep, every one of my kids friends (granted, all four at expensive private colleges but across the country) want the iPhone and have a droid phone because their parents wouldn;t let them spend the extra money for an iPhone.

        If you understand the driod software (and your boys might if they are software engineers), they might enjoy doing their own programming... but as Steve Wozniak has said in various forums, ~"the droid phones are a rough alternative to iOS for most users. Why try to figure out how to program icons and apps when some of the world's best software engineers out of Caltech and MIT have already done that for users on the iPhone. Get it?

        So, it's like this, if your boys are sophistiated programmers who want control of how their phone processes the web, they ARE the 1 in 10. If they don;t have that capability, then they are like the kid with a subaru -- great to have transportation, but they would much rather have a 911 Coupe -- just ask them and their girlfriends.

        Oh, do they also have Dell or hp laptops? LOL

    • Android now has 68% of the smartphone market, while Apple users have declined, those are the facts that Apple fanboy #$%$ don't understand. Samsung now has 19% of the Chinese smartphone market, flying over Apples 14% declining market share.
      The Iphone 5 (The Toy) will help grow Android users to over 75% of the smartphone market in 2013. Apple, who makes NOTHING, depended on top technology companies to make everything for them, they now sue their partners and use third rate products trying to compete with those top companies.

      • Gotta love these comments by clueless nimrods. Oh ye of little intelligence, what you don't seem to comprehend is you are comparing AAPL with the rest of the entire industry. It's like comparing GM against the rest of the entire auto industry.

        Moreover, and more relevant, is that that AAPL's profit share of the industry blows away any individual maker of Android phones. It's not even close right now. Market share by number of units out in circulation is frankly a foolish way to analyse the smartphone landscape. The overwhelming majority of Android products are low margin, and low margin doesn't cut it. Ask HTC.

        Get a clue.
