Android users sad hicks, iPhone users rich girls

And here's a fan to flame the neverending fanboy wars. Have at it, folks!

Article on CNet:
http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-20...rs-rich-girls/

Some highlights:
Quote:
Firstly, and perhaps most stunningly, Android users are 86 percent more likely than iPhone users to live in the countryside. What can this possibly mean? Possibly nothing, but wait. Those who prefer the little green robot are also 80 percent more likely to have only a high school diploma. They're also 71 percent more likely to say they follow rather than lead.

What a contrast with iPhone users. They are 67 percent more likely to have a household income of more than $200,000. They are 39 percent more likely to declare themselves high-maintenance. And they are 18 percent more likely to be women.
Quote:
Androiders are 71 percent more likely never to have traveled beyond the borders of the United States. They are more than 100 percent more likely to be PC users. And they adore "How I Met Your Mother."

iPhone users, world travelers that they are, loved "Midnight in Paris" and are 67 percent more likely to back up their laptops constantly. Oh, and they're 13 percent more likely to play a musical instrument.
iPhone users are also more likely to be extroverted optimists who spend a lot money...

I suppose, in a way, yes. That seems to be part of the findings.

Although the idea that they 'adore' How I Met Your Mother is sad damnation of the masses.

iPhones are notably more expensive, so more affluent people own them.

Wow, big surprise.

Which probably also correlates to income.

Hmm, methinks Android users are probably 99% more likely to have a Gmail account.

So it's Androids and PCs for the lumpenproletariat and iStuff for the Paris Hilton wannabes. Is that really news?

So we can conclude from this "study" that iPhone users are overwhelmingly wealthy, bossy, liberal, sushi-eating world travelers who check their email and talk while waiting in line to spend more money.

Just as I'd always suspected...

Hunch is like that-absurd, funny, but fascinating, just as long as you realize you are dealing with a pretty self-selected group of nerds who participate

Oh, look, a poll with self-chosen responders. We had a name for those in Statistical Analysis: useless.

Both my husband and I fit in the "iPhone group" but are Android users. Well, I say that, but I'm the only one of us who is female. Other than that, though... 'Course we've never filled out a poll on Hunch because what the heck is Hunch?

Definitely untrue... take a look at asking prices of top-end Android Smartphones like Galaxy II S...

Hmmm, I no longer know anyone with a Yahoo mail account, moved to GMail or just use their ISPs mail services...

We had a name for polls like that as well but it was spelled slightly differently, more like c**p as it was shorter and more to the point... and seconded with "Hunch"??? Must be too trendy for sane mortals with a life...

Depends on what you're talking about. If you're just after a tablet, you'd be hard pressed to not find an Android based tablet for less than the $500 base model iPad. You can get free phones with Android now, where as the cheapest iPhone is $50 and only available via AT&T (If you want one on Verizon, you have to spend $200).

Now, there are Android devices that are as expensive as the iDevices, but for most people, they're just after the entry level, and not the top end.
