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.

iphone subsidies

The iPhone is only popular where massive carrier subsidies are available eg USA and Australia. Where the subsidies don't exist iPhones have very limited marketshare.

Here in Australia the phone carriers have declared war on handset subsidies. This means that the overall cost of iPhones is considerably more expensive than similar Android phones.
