iPhones are for the rich, Androids for the rest of us [Infographic]

It's Tuesday in mid August. You're not really working are you?  So how about another juicy Hunch infographic comparing Android and iOS users. Let's be honest -- Hunch's findings, culled from more than 15,000 people -- are about one thing: class warfare. The wealthy use iPhones, and the rest of us Androids.

I love Hunch, but don't go there enough because the social rating service is such a time suck. Hell, it has been so long, I forgot -- and so had to reset -- my password today. Hunch cranks out these infographics every so often that I just can't resist.

Some of the demographic info really shows the class differences between Android and iPhone/iOS users. Androids are hicks -- they're 86 percent more likely to live in the country and 80 percent more likely to only have a high school diploma. By comparison, the iPhoners are 67 percent more likely to have household income of $200,000 or more; 60 percent more likely to have an American Express card; and 37 percent more likely to have a graduate degree.

You can see where this is going, right?

Androids are savers -- 29 percent more likely -- while iPhoners are wasters; they're 26 percent more likely to "spend their money". Hey, when you've got $200k a year to play with...

The Android working class sacrifice for their iPhone countrymen: Android users are "36 percent more likely not to remember their last vacation", while iPhoners are 15 percent more likely to have vacationed in the last half year and -- gasp -- 55 percent more likely to have used frequent-flier miles for free air travel in the last year.

iPhone users are "more than 100 percent more likely to be Mac users", which, I should point out, also are higher priced compared to Windows PCs. But, hey, $200k -- they can afford it. Not surprisingly, the Android working class is "more than 100 percent more likely to be PC users".

Those iPhone users are dangerous -- they're "50 percent more likely to text while driving". Androids prefer General Tso's Chicken and iPhoners Pad Tai. I say "Yum!" to both.
