    Cheaper and more open. Apple is somewhat yuppified and precious. But given the money they would pick iPhone anyway because they know it is better.

    Another theory: as a parent I would never buy my teen an iPhone because of possibility of theft/breakage and expense, and ATT probs. Droid’s just another phone.
