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.

Not sure...

Although I have the feeling that Apple is more popular with young people anecdotal evidence would suggest otherwise.

I was sitting on a bus at 4PM yesterday and I noticed an extraordinary amount of high-end Android devices in these school kids hands and almost no iPhones. Also interestingly it seemed that the Galaxy S2 was by far the most common phone.

I think the SII hits the sweet spot between bleeding edge and price. It's not the most modern phone out there, but it's still plenty fast. It's also very light, quite sturdy, and, in my view, is about a million times prettier than what came after it. For me, 4.3" also happens to be the perfect screen size.

Other than the Lumia's, I've yet to see a phone that bests it for me.
