New survey shows Android closing in fast on iPhone
posted by Alan F. / Jan 04, 2010, 10:12 PM
In terms of happiness, 77% of iPhone users are "very satisfied" with their device compared with 72% of Android users who say the same thing. 41% of BlackBerry users are "very satisfied" with their phone while 33% of Palm owners and 25% of Windows Mobile users say "ditto" about the handset that they are using. One note, ChangeWave says that the Palm Pre on its own scored a "very satisfied" rating of 58%.
How will the Nexus One change the rating when the Android powerhouse gets launched? ChangeWave reports that those looking to buy a phone in the next 90 days still prefer to buy the iPhone 3GS. Still, Android has the momentum and could overtake the Apple touchscreen device sometime in 2010.

The android operating system has been out a lot for quite some time... the droid and droid eris are not the phones that put it on the map... they have helped with all over sales just becuase the android operating system is now being carried on two providers instead of one... trust me the droid and droid eris did no put android on the map VZW fanman... the G1 did! the original ( and no i don't have t-mobile) just stating a fact.

Yeah but again then I do remember a certain article saying Apple was overtaking Nokia because Nokia had so many different models compared to Apple only having 1. Yet how many Android devices are there so far? I think not Google but good try. And no I don't have an iPhone and I do have Verizon.

True, but software/hardware exclusivity is what caused Apple to lose the computer war with Microsoft. Microsoft let everybody make their own hardware and throw Windows OS on it, and basically saturated the market with Windows.

Android really is better. iPhone is still ahead because they have the advantage of being released a while back while Android is still new. Once the crowd catches on, iPhone may loose ground. Besides the Droid is on a better network :)

They aren't, and why would they? It's the US, and they get no love from anybody except those who know about them. We have to face that fact that until the carriers start getting more of their models first, and then start pushing them, the market will never know they exist. Frankly, I can't understand why the newcomers Apple and Google can get so much leverage with the carriers compared to a company that's been around the block a few times. I guess they carriers have all the answers and think the public won't buy into their products, which is total crap. Hey, it's kinda like our government! They think they know what's best for us when in reality they don't know anything haha. Or they just don't care...
