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.

Of course it's different - but that doesn't mean the two don't affect each other. You can be pretty sure that if there are way more Android users than iPhone users, that young people will have less of a predisposition towards the iPhone as well.

Your hypothetical is not impossible - just far less likely.
