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.

I think the take from this should be that any survey done in the US on iPhones is useless anywhere else.

The iPhone and many android devices differ in either software features or specs in different markets. For instance, the new maps app is even more useless overseas than it is here in the US. Some of the Samsung phones have quad core chips in some markets, but only dual core chips here. To put it another way, coke vs pepsi doesn't hold up because the formulas are different in europe than the us just like the phones are different in europe vs the us.
