One of the top executives at Apple's chief rival, Samsung, has admitted that he uses an iPhone, iPad and Mac at home, largely due to Apple's "sticky" ecosystem.
The Samsung executive said he believes customers are even more drawn to Apple's ecosystem, with services like iCloud, than they are to the products themselves. He said the Galaxy Nexus is a "better phone" than the iPhone, but added that the "connected ecosystem is really critical."
Don't get excited chaps, this is just good salesmanship.
Yes he uses Apple products for overall integration, but his key statement is he feels Samsung makes the best phone. Of course he would say that, he wants to keep his job and he has to convenience some that Samsung are best at something. Just wait, Samsung are now busy copying iTunes and iCloud.
Yes most Apple iPhone users know better, like me I'm sure many have tried Samsung's latest S3, too big for the hand phone. An OK phone in a cheap plastic case, a lesser screen, with the same Google Maps as now on the iPhone.
Yes Samsung makes more phones and more models. They sure do, they make lots of anything and hope they sell.
Most sell at depressed prices, to those who only look at the initial cost. Even their highly regarded S3 was free here before release and again on Black Friday.
The latest of my friends to buy an "out of date free" Samsung phone have no idea how to run them online. Their main objective was a low cost thin phone, which would do msgs. When they realized they could go on the web, they tried but were not very successful, so have forgotten about the web. Believe me this is a current REAL true story.
