Most adults I know have iPhones, and quite a large sampling of them had an Android at one time or another, probably more than a third of them in fact.

It's been my experience that many people got their first smartphone to join the new age. Some did it due to peer pressure, some just to experiment, and more and more because of the dearth of any decent old-fashioned phones.

As many of those users began to experience some of the benefits of having a smartphone, they began to assess their purchase. Once lured by price alone, they became more interested in how the phone worked, what they wanted to do on it, and whether they liked it. The only people I know that prefer the Android phones are most certainly those that are IT and tech oriented. Many like to immediately "root" their phone and do some pretty amazing stuff. But just as is the case in the PC world, this is a small minority of users.

I've used some Android phones, and I've seen what those users did with them. How they interconnect with their computers, their daily lives. While I do admit some Android features not yet available in the iPhone world are pretty darn nice, the overall experience is not an experience I want in my life. Heck, it's nice to have choices.
