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.

China smart phones, last report 9 months ago they were almost 70% android. I wouldn't be surprised if that number's gone up.

Okay this report says 80% android (august):

And people keep posting market share data as if it has anything to do with demographic data for one platform or the other.
