Android market share and daily activations now far exceed iOS devices

Activations of Android devices now exceed 500,000 new devices every day. That’s incredible. What’s more, Android devices now have 34% of the smartphone marketshare compared with 26% for iOS devices.

Although Apple bashes Android for it’s fragmentation and lack of standardization across devices, I believe this is precisely the ingredient that makes the platform so successful. People like choice. People don’t like being told what they can and cannot do (or what they can and cannot install on their phone). Sure, iOS devices do have a more stable platform because it is more controlled, but I’d rather go with the quirks, differences and occasional badly behaving app to get what I want, not what you (Apple)  tell me I can have or do, thank-you very much.
