PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Does Android skew towards a younger demographic? The numbers might surprise you. According to comScore, 52.4% of all Android users are aged 35 years or older. That is five percentage points higher than the iPhone. Near 55% Android tablets users are also older than 35." How is this surprising? Younger people tend to be more brand-conscious, and there's no denying that the iPhone is still perceived as cooler than Android phones. Also note that the cited figures are for the US, Apple's strong home market. I think the figures will look very different for Europe.

Which is market share data, not demographic data for each individual platform.

You could have a country with 10 billion Android users and 5 iPhone users and the demographic data could still skew younger for the iPhone.

The % of young users of the iPhone doesn't decrease the more Android users there are; it would decrease if there are more older iPhone users.
