The people who buy iPad 3 accessories and other Apple products have spoken.
A new survey from Light Reading, which surveyed 550 telecom professionals, found that the average person has a mobile life made up of mobile device ownership and daily use of mobile videos, apps and Wi-Fi. Unsurprisingly, 37 percent of respondents said their mobile operating system is Apple. Just under 34 percent said they use Android.
"These results reflect the current global OS market share breakdown, although Android and its many smartphones have grown past Apple's one iPhone in recent months," the report said. "According to Canaccord Capital Corp.'s latest estimates, Android captured 52.7 percent of the overall global smartphone market as of the first quarter of 2012, whereas Apple grabbed 23.7 percent. No other platform came close with RIM at 8 percent, Windows Phone at 7.1 and Symbian at 6.8 percent."
Even though Apple is more popular, 54 percent of people ages 18 to 28 use Android compared with Apple's 21 percent of that group.
