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.

So basically, this research indicates that people who take their decisions regarding their purchase of a new phone with more reasonable and calculated considerations, and probably are less influenced by peer pressure and impulse behavior, these people often go for an Android phone. Well, duh!
