Google Andy Rubin, who created Android and has led its development both at Android Inc. and later at Google, has decided to step down as the big Android boss at Google. Having created the world's "most-used mobile operating system", as Google CEO Larry Page refers to it, I'd say his stint has been successful. Interestingly enough, he will be succeeded by Sundar Pichai - Chrome OS boss. Yes.

There has always been a lot of misrepresentation on the interwebs about which is the most used mobile operating system because Andoid's mobile phone operating system share is bigger than iOS's mobile phone operating system share.


Uh, that's pretty much the definition of more used.
More users == more use.
Or are you saying people buy these phones, keep them in their boxes and never use them?

This holds true not only for market share that references sales but also in every single statistic I've seen that references web tracking code.


Web tracking code says zero about mobile OS use, it only says something about mobile OS web browsing.
