Android has been chosen as the "best perceived brand" among the LGBT community in the latest BrandIndex rankings. This is the first year Android has made the list, and it edged out the iPhone by just a couple points. The folks at BrandIndex tallied up scores for over 1,100 brands, and asked “If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?” The negative was subtracted from the positive, and after filtering results for those who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender, Android got a score of 38.2.
We're not exactly sure what this means, except that it's pretty fabulous, and we know Google and the guys and gals on the Android team support all folks without caring about who or how they love. And that's the way it should be.
