According to Engadget, AT&T will launch 12 new Android devices this year. Assuming half of those are phones and there are about 30 other Android phones out there, doesn’t that make it easier for Apple to market the iPhone? Is there really someone out there waiting for that ultra-specific Android feature set that no one else has created yet? Lastly, is there an original pixel, menu, screen, or design for any Android product yet or are they all blatant ripoffs of something Apple did?
My opinion: The iPhone, being a classic, original Apple product, wins by default with anyone who has an ounce of creativity. Buying an Android is like buying fake Moleskines. What’s the point?
