Thanks to everyone who gave their 5 minutes to answer my poll today! It's closed now. I still have to get the numbers from the other guys in my group, but the ones I got from you look pretty interesting. A quick look suggests that cost, size, and features are the most important variables (in that order). Text / instant messaging is far and away the most popular feature. PDA functionality is the least. Nokia is the top brand.
I'll follow up on this later with some more graphs and neat data.
I was going to write a mini rant or something about Gaim here, but I think I'd rather sleep.
