PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "StatCounter's latest Internet Wars Report found that, in the month of June, Samsung devices accounted for 25.43 percent of smartphone Internet usage, compared to 25.09 for Apple's iPhone devices. Samsung has moved into the leadership position in smartphone web use over the course of the last year, which has seen the South Korean tech giant's share grow from 19.46 percent just 12 months ago." Android sales outpacing everything else is starting to show up in usage statistics.

Sure but that does not obviate the fact that Samsung/Android has strong mobile usage growth..

It's no doubt fair to say that there is lots of people buying Android phones because their cheap (not caring about the OS) but that still means more users/customers for mobile apps at the expense of iOS.

And to those who say 'but iPhone 4 is free' remember that that's only when you buy a 2 year plan which is only available in some countries. For the bulk of the worlds population the iPhone is simply way too expensive.

Useage growth only matters if you can monitize the growth. And we know that ads is where that is and people on cheap phones rarely click on ads and rarely spend much on apps, music etc.

For Apple they will never make cheap phones. They may make mid range phones, maybe a $200 and $300 dollar phone but never cheap phones. ($50 or $100)

Uhm, the average Android user now is worth almost as much as the average iOS user. $4800 vs. $5200 I believe (can't find the link right now).
