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.

Yes, okay, you buy Android -- this does not affect the demographic background of iPhone buyers. I'm baffled by the lack of comprehension on this matter.

Thom acts sarcastic about this being surprising but then everyone here is falling over the incorrect stereotype that only old people use iPhones. Even if there are fewer iPhones, it doesn't mean there are less young people choosing them amongst the audience of iPhone users.
