Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

...and according to the figures you just linked to, Android grew by 634% in the UK, and is only half a percentage point behind iOS.

You were saying?

Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics ...

My point still stands.

Apple sell 1 phone against how many Android phones which are cheaper on contract ... (iPhone 4 until recently was £40 contract, and £160 one off fee, HTC desire is free on £30 contract).

It like comparing Windows notebooks against MacBook Pros ... there is only 1 vendor producing Macbook Pros compared to everyone and their wife producing Windows notebooks.

The stats don't mean anything until you actually normalise it against the number of manufacturers for android ...

So iPhone still managed 46% growth with one manufacturer and android was 600+% with how many, HTC, motorola, samsung, lg, sony etc ... oh it doesn't seem that impressive growth once you factor in the fact that iOS and iPhone are pretty much one product against many products that just happen to be running android.

It ends up with swings and roundabout ... and Apple still making profits ... and still leading the smartphone and tablet market.

Oh btw ... 6hours ago

HMM ...

Oh I liked how you lost it against me when discussing innovation after I provided evidence .. to support my opinions ...
