11x021867gv3ef Who Says Pretty Girls Dont Use Androids?

Does your phone depict whether you err on the side of geeky or pretty? Apparently some think so. The CEO of the Android handset-making INQ took improper generalization and sexism to a whole new level with a recent quote about girls not being able to use Androids because, in other words, it makes them geeky, not pretty. In fact, his direct quote was:

“If you go to a nightclub in any city in the world, the pretty girl has an iPhone or a BlackBerry. She doesn’t have an Android phone. She has no emotional attachment to an Android phone. It’s too complicated. It’s a geek device, it’s all wrong.”

Before you get mad and defensive, just know there is a little truth to his words. Android is, technically, a geekdom, offering the most accessible platform in the world. But to completely write it off for the nightclub-going ladies is completely truthful. Which kind of phone do you have? An iPhone, Android, or something else? Do you think your phone helps defy your personality?

    I am a club going pretty girl with a iPhone 🙂 had a android device but didn’t care for it much. iPhone is soo much better But I do not feel it defines me! It has extra features and options a normal phone would not which comes in handy when I’m bored or need a little date organization. Simplifys life a tad. :).

    I think it’s more an issue of him not understanding his target markets as well as he should (and I mean, the guy’s a geek himself – geeks are notorious for not being so great at the whole filtering thoughts or understanding women, haha…) Anyway, I’m picking up my first ‘droid this week – I’m a model, and a techie (not into the whole club scene though, lol, it takes too much energy to go somewhere just to strut your stuff – I’d rather go hang out with friends where I can actually talk to them/do stuff with them…) Plus, why on earth are you going to a club to use your phone anyway?!? I’m thinking it’s more like you’re only going to see a hot retard using her phone at the club, and therefore you’re probably not going to see a cutie with an android there…
