When it comes down to which operating system is the platform of choice by users in a particular region or state— the results might just surprise you. Despite the large volume of downloads Myxer sees from users on the Android platform, iPhone still dominates states across the country when it comes to number of registered users on Myxer.
User Concentration by State — iPhone/Android
Myxer Platform – January 2010
The number of registered users on the Android operating system has surpassed iPhone users in eight states, with seven of them coming from West and Midwest states including: Arizona, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. We are particularly excited to track the trending growth of Android, and to that end, we will publish this map quarterly in order to see which states, and regions, turn Android over the course of 2010.
Also in this month’s installment of the BoomBox Report, we’ll be doing our best Jacques Cousteau (of sorts), free-diving into the digital depths, and exploring the taxonomy of Android handsets. We’ll be reporting back on an interesting variety of data points from across the range of all Android devices seen by Myxer. Through examining user preferences, such as: gender mix, age breakdown, and average monthly downloads per user, we believe we’ll attain a better understanding of not only the overall Android operating system, but also the individual phones which operate on the platform.
Some highlights from this month’s report include:
- Motorola DROID handsets were the most diverse in terms on downloading different genre types, consuming 64% of their content from the Rock, Comedy, Pop, Country, and Other categories.
- On every Android handset seen by Myxer the average woman downloads more mobile entertainment than average man.
- Google’s Nexus One is the manliest of the Android Handsets. 75% of registered Myxer users with the Nexus One phone are Male.
