I think US citizens are the only ones in the world who are pissing their pants when they hear of another i(instert product here). In my country we have apple fans also but didn`t hear of people waiting in line several days before a product lunch.

I like Android, mostly because its high customability and flexibility.

iOS is good. Love its simplicity and design. Oh, the accessories are great too.
But somehow, it makes me feel like I'm in some kinda "fairy land" with all sort of magik stuffs and all.
Touch nothin', change nothin, ask nothin'. Just sit and enjoy what we've painstakingly made for you.

If only Apple would be more... "lenient" to their phone, sure they'll be gettin more share.

Just my opinion, no offense.

Let me guess: This "12 Week Period" included the launch of the iPhone 5?

This would make sense as Europe is doing considerably worse financially than the USA, making the more budget offerings from Google Android much more appealing to the Europeans. Meanwhile the US has a glut of iSheep stocking up on the new iPhone 5 they have been craving ....

You can correlate Apple products to George W. Bush supporters? Where's your proof backing this. Its sad when anti-Apple individuals have to sink to this level.

Though that was indeed a travesty I wouldn't blame it on the iSheep.

Apple has very strict rules of what you can and cannot do as far as UI is concerned, for example

Three days ago they just said how Andriod captured 75% of the market in the 3rd quarter. One week ago they said Apple held over 50% of volume of sales. Now they are saying iOS is on top.

I give up trying to figure out toms.

New Android phones are released year-round, while the only iPhone release of the year happened during the course of the study, so of course iPhone usage is going to go up in that period.

The people elected him once. The electoral college elected him twice ;)

9/11 was an inside job.

That's pretty much what it looks like. The iPhone 4S was released in October 2011. The iPhone 5 was released in September 2012. So the 12-week comparison period in 2011 is when iPhone users were waiting for the 4S to come out, while in 2012 it's when they were buying iPhone 5s. Pretty worthless as a statistical data point.

The 75% figure was worldwide sales while this is looking specifically at US/UK.
So that means that in the rest of the world android was even more dominant than 75% sold.
