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.

just re-read your comment, i see you are saying that there are pathological buyers out there.


Yes. That is what I was saying.

i totally agree with that. some of the newfound apple success are those types , who have had 7 phones and finally wanted to try (or could afford) an iphone. but once you have an iphone you usually don't keep jumping, you realize it's just a slab communicator and most of the fun is in the apps or the browser.


There is no data to come to this conclusion other than your own experiences. My experiences differ widely.
