  14. 14. More men than women use AndroidFor just about any product that can be marketed to the public, there are certain demographics that marketers keep in mind. For Android, their maindemographic is men with about only about 27% ofusers being female. Users are also mainly between the ages of 18 and 44 with about 60% of thembeing under the age of 34. Android users use their phone for more than just texting and making phone calls; about 34% of their time is spentchecking their emails and 21% playing games, with one of the top games being Angry Birds.
  15. 15. Will Android be completely open aspreviously thought? It seems not and a good reason for saying this is the factthat the complete Android code hasnt been disclosed to the developer community and it is likely that Google will not disclose the crux of the Android code for reasons best known to it. Be ready for less than full Android development then.
  16. 16. You must be wondering hoe does Google benefit from keeping the Android platform open source especially when it doesnt take a dime from the application distributed through the online Android Market. Well Google the old hat wants to dominate the mobile advertising space justlike it has dominated the PC web space. So dont be surprised if you see a pop up every now and then while browsing on your Android phone, after all Google doesnt collect the huge chunkof your personal browsing data for nothing, does it?
  17. 17. Android outsells Apple in one out of 6 U.S. states. There are eight states where Android may be a bigger seller but unfortunately they are the lower-population states in this country.
  18. 18. Advertisers are more interested inAndroid. U.S. surveys indicate thatthere are more ad impressions forAndroid which isn’t surprising since it’s a Google-based phone and they’re stellar with ads.
  19. 19. While the iPhone can only run one appat a time the Android is a proper multi- tasking mobile OS that can run multiple apps like the Google Maps, media player, browser at the same time without any hiccups. Seems like iPhone has some catching up to do at least in one department.
  20. 20. You have many more handset options withAndroid. The iPhone is just the iPhone. Androidis, of course, a platform which means that many different people are making multiple handsetsbased on Android. This isn’t necessarily good orbad for either party. On the one hand, you have more choices with Android. On the other hand, you know exactly what you’re getting with Apple.
