How Smartphone Users See Each Other

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 15 comments

What do you get when you cross a grim reaper, a dinosaur, and a pizza delivery kid?

C-Section Comics recently published a humorous look at iPhone, Android, and Blackberry users, featuring how each segment of the smartphone user market perceives each other. Here it is (click on the image to view the full-size version):

For those who can’t see the image above: the typical iPhone user sees herself as hip, Blackberry users see her as a baby, and Android users consider her as part of Steve Jobs’ death squad. The typical Android user thinks he’s a genius. But iPhone users see him as a nerd, while Blackberry users as a loser in a dead-end job. Typical Blackberry users consider themselves as big-deal businessmen, but are seen as old fogeys by iPhone users, and dinosaurs by Android users.

Are these stereotypes accurate? From my personal experience, not necessarily so. But I do know that a lot of people do subscribe to them.

    I think it can be reasonably assumed, that stereotypes are great.

    Maybe I'm nitpicking, but the whole things looks horribly kitschy drawn and the idea of doing this is not new. That makes a failed attempt at humor, in my book. Look at the chart of how programmers see each other based on the programming language they use (here). Now, isn't it so much better?

    I forgot Symbian, I had one of those, bit pointless.
    Win-7 is good, but can't customise ring tones, that a big feature to leave out, what were they thinking

    Stereotypes are stereotypes because they do in fact reflect the majority of that particular group. Not sure why they were so against stereotypes in school, but that's another thing.

    So yes, I agree with the image.
