Google Yes, it's been a long road, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has achieved a major milestone. Just over half a year since it's been released, Google's latest Android version has crossed the all-important 7% installed base barrier. This is a major achievement for Android, so Google has reason to celebrate. I'm proud to be part of the 7.1%.

Nope. That is incorrect.

iOS achieved 95% only after the Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak was out! ;-P

Really? Do you have hard figures?

There's no reason to Jailbreak for me anymore. In the UK all iPhones can be legally unlocked (depending on carrier rules, but at worst, end of contract). My 3G was factory unlocked as soon as it was allowed (the rules changed in the UK, so that carriers will now unlock whilst on contract), and 3GS and 4 were all factory unlocked free by O2 with in the first week of owning and whilst still on contract. I jailbroke the 3G to get video recording (cycorder). That's no longer an issue. I jailbroke the 4 to get the improved notifications, no longer an issue in iOS 5. I'd rather change OS now than mess about with Jailbreaks. Half the interesting stuff in the Cydia store never seemed to work on iOS 4 (the Terminal app being the one that stuck in my memory.)

I think you're confusing SIM unlocking with jailbreaking (rooting) the phone. Some countries are forcing phones to be unlocked so that consumers have the choice of provider. Jailbreaking is different - it allows the execution of arbitrary programs on the phone.

(Unless this jargon is totally messed up on IOS... *shrug*)
