Android Is a Free Replacement for a Feature Phone Says Apple’s Phil Schiller

Samsung’s announcing the Galaxy S IV tomorrow but before it does, Apple wanted to take a few shots at Android. Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, crapped all over Android telling the WSJ that, “Android is often given a free replacement for a feature phone and the experience isn’t as good as an iPhone.” We already knew Apple and Google were in a war so them’s fighting words about Android aren’t exactly surprising. It’s just interesting to see Apple try and knock Android down a few notches before the S IV’s big coming out party (Schiller said that four times as many iPhone users switched from Android as opposed to to Android last quarter)
