People always say Apple products are a status symbol meaning like if you have it, you're just telling everybody you're rich.. Why is that? There are Android and Windows 8 phones that cost $200 on contract (same as the iPhone) and there tablets that cost more than iPads. Why is Apple seen as a status symbol? Also, why is it that Apple products have a higher resale value than Android handsets 2 years down the road? I'm not asking rhetorical questions to make a point... I just want to know. Thanks.
