Phil Schiller Goes on Offensive Against Android and Samsung
Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller went on the offensive against Android in a unusually forthright interview with The Wall Street Journal.
Mr. Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of world-wide marketing, also said that Android users are often running old operating systems and that the fragmentation in the Android world was "plain and simple."
He added that "Android is often given a free replacement for a feature phone and the experience isn't as good as an iPhone."
In addition to the above comments, Schiller said that Android devices and the operating system "don't work seamlessly together" because they come from different vendors, unlike Apple which makes both the software and hardware in its devices.
Samsung is expected to announce an update to its flagship Galaxy S smartphone line tomorrow.

I have owned the S3, Nexus 4 and the Note 2 and i can tell you fragmentation hasnt hurt my experience one bit.
PC's are fragmented to hell and they dont suffer. In fact OSX cant perform a single benchmark better than PC in any games.
Dont tell consumers its for their benefit you make the hardware and software. Its for your profit only

Google makes $0 from Android. They are actually helping foreign companies and hurting American companies in the process.
