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.

Although I have the feeling that Apple is more popular with young people anecdotal evidence would suggest otherwise.

I was sitting on a bus at 4PM yesterday and I noticed an extraordinary amount of high-end Android devices in these school kids hands and almost no iPhones. Also interestingly it seemed that the Galaxy S2 was by far the most common phone.
