Android outperforms iPhone Os? According to Apple, this is not very significant – Macitynet.it
Apple minimizes the numbers of NPD that yesterday gave great evidence to overcome Android against the iPhone. The statistical data that assigns 28% of sales on the American market to phones based on Google's operating system against 21% of iPhone Os, according to Apple, are "the result of an evaluation carried out on a sample that responded to an online survey by 150 thousand people and does not take into account the 85 million users who use iPhones and iPod touches all over the world " on All Things D.
According to Harrison, what matters are the IDC figures that say that "iPhone at 16.1% of the world market is constantly growing and constantly exceeds Android sales. We had – continues the manager of Apple – a record of sales in the quarter with 131% growth and thanks to iPhone Os 4.0 coming this summer we do not see any competitor able to approach us shortly "
The news of Android in front of iPhone Os had made a lot of noise yesterday, even if several sites, including those that had first spread the information, had underlined the peculiarity of the system adopted (a sample of online users) and the fact that it referred only to the USA. Among other details, not entirely highlighted is the fact that in the last few weeks Verizon, the most important American mobile operator, has launched a sort of two by one, an Android phone (or Rim) as a gift to all those who buy the device .
