iPhone Owners Love the iPhone. Android Owners… Hate Android.

Hey, it’s the Yankee Group again! While it’s from the same CNN Money article we’re finding tidbits of information from, we decided to split their statistics into two posts.

Quoting 9 to 5 Mac:

A telling stat from Yankee Group via CNN:

The iPhone is also the gift that keeps on giving: 77% of iPhone owners say they’ll buy another iPhone, compared to 20% of Android customers who say they’ll buy another Android phone.

You’ll all have your own thoughts on Android (haters gonna hate), but I have my own theory on this. There’s so many Android phones available, I can see the this statistic being appropriate for the platform as a whole. I think anyone still running anything less than Android 2.0 would probably want to throw their phone out the window at this point. And I can see owners of lesser Android phones like the Motorola Cliq, the HTC Droid Eris, and the Samsung Moment being generally dissatisfied. But looking at phones like the Motorola Droid, I can see those particular users being very happy as they have a massive development communities behind them. I imagine Motorola Droid X and HTC Evo owners would be happy with their purchase as well if they sought an Android phone, but I chose the Droid specifically since it’s the phone to get if you want to take advantage of every ounce of openness that’s advertised about the platform.

Otherwise, I’m indifferent.
