GOOGLE ANDROID IS A REAL MAN’S PHONE?
Former Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki says ‘real men use Google Android’
“People are kind of amazed, but I don’t use any iOS products, none at all…I fell in love with Android on the smartphone, and then I got a Nexus 7 and started using Android on the tablet as well. To me the great irony is that Apple’s slogan was `Think Different,’ but today if you think different you’re looking at Google Android.”

And among younger consumers—the age group with the highest rates of smartphone ownership—Android phones had a 12 percentage point lead over iPhones, with 43% of mobile phone owners between 18 to 24 years old on Android smartphones, compared with 31% on the iPhone. Android was also more popular among those ages 25 to 54, though the difference began to narrow progressively among each older age group.

Droid. Should a phone be pretty? Should it be a tiara-wearing digitally clueless beauty pageant queen? Or should it be fast? Racehorse duct-taped to a Scud missile fast. We say the latter. So we built the phone that does. Does rip through the Web like a circular saw through a ripe banana. Is it a precious porcelain figurine of a phone? In truth? No. It’s not a princess. It’s a robot. A phone that trades hair-do for can-do.
