iOS vs. Android: Christmas Face-Off [Chart]

Posted December 28, 2011 at 2:57pm by iClarified · 19138 views
Apple and Google were both fighting to be on top this holiday season and it looks like Apple may have outdone Google on Christmas day, reports FORTUNE.

A Flurry Analytics report estimates that on Christmas Day, iOS and Android activations jumped to more than 6.8 million, a 353% increase over the baseline.

Google's Andy Rubin reveals that 3.7 million Android devices were activated on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Given that Android has at least 700,000 activations on an average day, that means at most Google activated 3 million devices on Christmas Day.

If Flurry Analytics' activations estimate is accurate, that means Apple activated at least 3.8 million devices on Christmas Day, surpassing Google.

Considering that Android phones typically outsell the iPhone by 3:1, it's likely that Apple shot ahead thanks to the iPod touch and iPad being popular Christmas gifts.

Again.. NOT FAIR!! try comparing more on one brand at a time. Pick one brand.. SAMSUNG VS APPLE, HTC vs APPLE, Motorola vs Apple or LG vs APPLE.. Lets see how dat goes!! Ya'll comparing all ANDROID phones in the world vs one ios which only carry one brand (apple). Its a freakin GANGBANG!! And get this, Apple still comes out on top! Thats freakin embarassing!!

I actually purchased the Galaxy Tab 7.0 to test it, I just want to see what is all about, I have an iPhone 4, an iPad 1 and 2 both 3g and the tab now, the iPad 1 with JB and Phoneit-ipad, and works fine as a phone, NOT great, but works, and even the android is a good HW (lack of battery) and the OS is fine, I must say the return rate for the touch screen, of the IOS devices is a lot better, and I must add that I will keep my iPad 1 and 2 (waiting for the JB and the Phoneit-Ipad for the iPad 2) then I will sell the Samsung Tab and and use also my iPhone 4 (well,,, waiting for the iPhone 5...soon)
