    Not me! I don't care for Apple products. Just wish Android would get a great tablet out.

    Useless survey. How many iPhone users were planning on dumping it for Android. I know 2 people who are tired of the iPhone and planning to switch to Android. I don't know any that are planning on going to the iPhone.

    The only people that are considering doing so are people who switched from the iPhone. Bore with IOS they got an Android phone but don't have access to their old apps, and lack of app support on the Android platform. So when the newest iPhone comes out they leave.

    I know because I am an iPhone user, majority of my smartphones were iPhones. But... I can't put down my GS3. This phone is a beast, and I can't wait until the official jellybean OTA is release for the US carrier variants.

    But this phone does to many things that the iPhone can't do. I simply wish Android has a stronger app dev community like with iOS.

    These numbers aren't indicative of the whole. There are always people moving from brand to brand or O/S to O/S. There are probably hundreds if not thousands of people right now jumping from Android to iOS because they bought the HTC whatever cheapo phone or Samsung Galaxy "we only made this phone because it was cheap" that Cricket or Metro PCS was offering and weren't satisfied with the Android 2.2/2.3 experience. Yes there are people that genuinely don't like Android as well but I'm conveniently leaving them out just to fudge the numbers(everyone else does it, why can't I? ).

    On the flip side there are probably a lesser number of people flipping from iOS to Android. These are also not the Appl-ologists that wouldn't touch anything Apple even if their lives depended on it. So if there is a report stating that 22 percent of people will swap between Android and iOS, I'd wager that this 22 percent(give or take a few) make up that fluctuation in the market that will switch to whatever is either newest, cheapest, or "trendy". Oh and also 22 percent of Android users "willing" to dump for the iPhone is not 22 percent that "will" dump Android.

    Just my take, treat it as such ;-)
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    I really like Android but I'll probably switch to Apple myself as much as it pains me. Apple's business model drives me crazy but their phones do work. It just seems like a much more stable OS.

    I would say that is close to the mark, but Mr. Smith is probably right. It's mostly just the normal fluctuation.

    On switching, until apple cuts the "we know what's best for you" device approach, I won't be getting one. I value function over forum, and want a smart phone and not a phone that can just get on the net and do some cool things.

    On apps, I have never found a single ios app that does not have an android counterpart that is just as functional or more. They are not always as pretty, but they always get the job done just as well and are usually free.

    As far as stability goes. It's myth that android is less stable in my experience. Apps force close on ios all the time,they just do it more gracefully and less easily because there is no real multitasking. It also has to do with how you use them though. I can get an iphone to start freezing and force closing if I want to. Even make it restart. Just start zooming around one and try to get multiple things to run at once and it will shard itself. Then again I have done the same thing to an s3 and froze the ui, so ya know lol.

    If you want a great android tablet then get a nexus 7 or tf300. I have a tf300 and it matches or exceeds the iPad in everything except screen sharpness. Plus it is much cheaper and has the option of the fully integrated keyboard dock. Another thing the iPad can't and won't be able to do...

    I don't not own one, but the one I have use was great. At the price point I don't think it can be beat.

    Ppl always say that the iPad has more games(and I'm sure it does), but I have been satisfied with the selection for my tf300. I am not saying the ipad is a bad device by any means, I just want more function than it offers and the premium price tag leaves me scratching my head sometimes.

    LOL... the OP's post made me lulz greatly! One of my co-workers actually came into my office to see what I was laughing about.

    Oh, and to the Android Tablet thing... the Asus Transformer tablets are amazing, so is the Nexus, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1", and... nice variety, either that or an iPad, iPad 2, or an iPad 3.

    I should have been more specific, yes the Nexus 7 is sweet, but I'd really like to see a 10" version. Old eyes need larger screen sizes.

    Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 - Samsung Mobile
    -or-
    Eee Pad | Transformer Prime

    Both have larger screens, faster processors, and more memory than any iPad.

    There are others (read: CHOICES) too!

    I won't be leaving my Android for iphone. I'd rather go back to Blackberry than iphone. I need a functional product, not a over priced toy. I've owned their computers and honestly I wasn't impressed all that much once I got deep into their inner workings. I always tell ppl that I won't buy another Apple product because I NEED to I'll buy one because I WANT to. All things considered, I wanted an android, I didn't know I needed it (that is, until I got it) and now I'm not looking back.

    Loving my S3 and if it ever became unfunctional (like never!), then I'd just reactivate my TBolt. Like many, I don't like the Apple ecosystem.

    most of the people I know that have an ipad use it for games, Istuff just seam to be entertainment hardware, to me, android just seam to be more work, business hardware. Besides, an Iphone just cant do what I need to make it worth it.

    They will only switch if they can legally by the device in their country and if HTC and Samsung get their way BOTH the iPad and iPhone 5 will be banned from the USA. Look at today's Droid Life post about HTC complaining to the ITC and even the judge over the case said HTC made a strong case and it will be hard for Apple to defend. I hope it gets banned and it screws apple over to the point where they are broke from legal costs and no revenue is being produced from the iPhone or iPad. It would give them a taste of their own medicine!
