70. Google showed Samsung a 2010 device in 2006?

Cool story, bro.

To accomplish that, they must have shown them their time machine as well.

You think this is about touchscreens? You clearly have no idea what these suits are about. And this will be my last response to you on that subject.

On another subject...

People are wondering what Android users are using their devices for.

Blodget has the baseline numbers. Android devices (thus the Android operating system) vastly outnumber Apple (iOS) devices worldwide and they significantly outnumber them in the US market (53% to 34%, according to Blodget). And yet when it comes to actual web traffic, far more of it comes from iOS devices (60% for Apple to 20% for Android) and the same seems to be even more true for people buying things over mobile devices.

Ooh! Ooh! I have the answer. Android phones are cheap (in more ways than price). Google is losing billions on Android to game the market.

Also, the profitability of apps in the two respective app stores are astronomically different. With once again, Apple coming out on top for developers.

Why?

See above.

Android users largely buy (or get them free) an Android because it's cheap and they want a flashy screen. They make phone calls with it and barely do anything else.



Enjoy your Toyota Tercel. I'm sticking with the Mercedes Benz 550 AMG.
