Google Andy Rubin, who created Android and has led its development both at Android Inc. and later at Google, has decided to step down as the big Android boss at Google. Having created the world's "most-used mobile operating system", as Google CEO Larry Page refers to it, I'd say his stint has been successful. Interestingly enough, he will be succeeded by Sundar Pichai - Chrome OS boss. Yes.

Please take into account that other parts of the world exist beyond the US.


Of course. iOS is larger by a significant margin than any mobile operating system... including android.

The last, and only Apple computer I saw in my country was 15 years ago.


I'm not talking about an Apple computer. Why are you bringing this up?

*Some* people have iPads and iPhones over here (so I was told, never seen it personally). Believe me, iOS market share is nearly non-existent down here (its Android all over it).


Im not talking anecdotal evidence as you did. I'm talking both market share and usage share... worldwide. iOS is larger than any other mobile operating system.

iOS isn't larger by any measure. It's used more to browse websites.

And just like claiming that iOS devices should be counted as PCs, you are making a statement full of deceit.

It just goes to show you... People buy an Android device to have a smart phone, People buy an iOS device to use a smart phone.

Considering the disparity in #'s alone. the fact that iOS has such a commanding lead in on-line usage is embarrassing to Android. it means the average person who buys an android does not use it on line! Probably because they are intimidated. While people buy an iOS device because it ... wait-for-it...."JUST WORKS!" ;)

As an OSS user for coming up on 20 years now, I'm really disappointed in the Android ecosystem.

I provided evidence showing as much. What have you provided?
