Anonymous, 20 Apr 2011not with ios 5.0 lol! ipad 2 already faster than androiddon't be stupid trying to deny the claims mentioning ios versions which arent even released yet being faster than androids browser. Thats like me saying that um lets say android 2.6 and honeycomb 3.2 will be faster than ios 5
Bricked, 20 Apr 2011Looks like the great pretender Android still has a lot of work to do. WP7/8 will dislodge ... moreWP7 is nice. much better than IOS in my opinion and more stable than android and IOS. never had a glitch when I owned the HTC Surround. Had to go back to android though. WP7 too primitive right now just like when Android was too primitive for me when It started. Has IOS really changed since its release? I mean besides its version of multitasking.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2011android copied ios in terms of ui and web browsing lolIn Web Browsing? Even Flash 10.2? I agree. I found many similarities when I first use them. But I feel the user experience is much better on android. Well, at least the newer androids versions
Lolcat, 20 Apr 2011If HTC switches to iOS, that will be the day i will leave HTC products for sure. Long live And... moreremember android was created as cheaper version for ios. multitouch web browser, icon based UI, apps all pioneered by apple. ipad also created another line of product like iphone created a new line of touch phone. remember how ipod nano killed competitors!!! people hate apple since they are expensive. Once a cheaper version is launched, it was surprising that all walkman and creative zen loversbought nothing but nano lol!!!
Well, 10% market share for cell phones only for android, but 16% market share for cell phones, tablets, and music players...
Something tells me if you look at the cell phone OS market share only you'll see Android has the lead in a huge margin.
with apples ios being out on the market on phones for 5 or 6 years now its bound to have more devices activated, but android is being activated in far greater number in comparison on a daily basis and as so these figures will be entirely different withing a year.
Experts predict ios to fall back to third place and good riddance,it hasn't changed much in 6 years but has changed many bank account outlays
ios browser speed found to be 52% slower than android 2.3s
Apple very angry lol
well that's normal apple is a really popular in USA and android is more popular i europe so that's not a suprise almost every englishman or american has ipOD or iphone
delightsome, 20 Apr 2011well... lets wait and see.android will keep to open the people eye's, it will crush apple!
Looks like the great pretender Android still has a lot of work to do.
WP7/8 will dislodge Android within 2 years.
[deleted post]I also am wondering about the other 74%. are IOS and andriod 1 & 2. tough to be true with such a small total share. I doubt symbian has much in USA. I bet blackbery has a decent sized slice of the pie. thinking that PC's may have largest shares. xman
Thing is with ios apple is massively monitoring you and watching your every move.
Hmmmm,the fanboys are indeed under tight control
People seem to be forgetting that this is restricted to the US market.
Anyway, I posted the following a while back in another thread. Data might be a whee bit outdated now that Android has announced hitting 350k activations/day, but I think the general point is there.
Assuming the rate of Android activation increases linearly, averaging the number of devices activated per day (300k as of Dec'10), we arrive at about 120m Android devices sold as of Dec'10 (150k x 30 days x 26 months since Oct'08). iOS took almost 1.5x longer (120m announced in Sept'10, 38 months from the release of the iPhone, Jun'07).
Using the current average number of devices activated per day for Android (300k), we can extrapolate that the total number of Android devices sold to date would be ~160m, which is a little less than the total number of iOS devices sold to date (Given the 160m figure in Jan'11, I'll estimate it at ~190m). Considering that iOS had a 16-month headstart, I'd say Android is doing pretty damned well.
This chart is about to change dramastically,android after all is a relatively new os and much more android devices are being activated daily in comparison to apples ios. Ios therefore with 5 years head start and so many of ios device still active even from the first generation iphone is bound to have the lead but this lead is not gonna last long
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2011so how many handsets of android and how many of ios are comparing?? comparing iphone against o... moreIn that case then the iPhone will win by a landslide. If we compare Apple's number of iPhones sold to the entire Galaxy line of Samsung it will not even be a contest. If Apple launches a cheaper iPhone like they did with the iPod Nano then we will see another surge.
Sorry Guyz but one thing is admirable from Apple is this numbers in just one company...
Android has Motorola, HTC, Samsung, LG, Huawei and some others using Android, from 1.5 to 2.3, and Applo is JUST Apple, that's the kind of company that knows how to sell their products, and make it a hit without need any other to get that crown..
That hurts, but is real, Apple knows their game, and Android need a million of others companies to get fulll, I might what happen if Android only get the HTC or Motorola or Samsung to run...any no any other brand...They will get the same numbers???
I have a Moto Droid X and I'm impressed with X's benchmark and too much power a my hand, but I also miss my Apple 3GS, that one don't even have the half power of Droid X, BUT still fun to use....
And sorry but the Android Market sucks against Apple store, no to mention OVI that is really in pampers...
