That is impressive. Not going to lie, took me a moment to figure out those graphs.

It should be noted that these shares are based on quarterly shipment figures, not total installed base. Given its long reign at the top, Windows is almost certainly remains the largest computing system in the world by installed base.

This was also interesting to me.. I really didn't think Android Tablet sales would overtake the iPad yet..

Nor did I. I don't see many tablets around but when I do they're all iPads. I'd like to try the Nexus 7 myself.

I have started seeing a lot of kindle fires around as of late.. and Amazon has really been pushing their advertising a bit lately - so it's not "as" surprising as it would have been a year ago.. but it's still surprising.

you do understand the concept of ebb and flow in the hardware manufacturer market right? who cares about htc..that has nothing to do with android as an OS, trollhog.

i dont really care if samsung or htc or motorola or whoever makes the best product in 2014..thats the beauty of having multiple hardware manufacturers..you're not at the mercy of a dumbass at apple to always be cutting edge.

enjoy your iphone freefall.

I fully expect this number to rise to near 80% in a little over a year.

Android manufacturers produce cutting edge stuff year round while apple produces 1 or 2 phones a year and are outpaced the instant they hit the market.

I am still shell-shocked by Android surpassing Windows in sales of OS.. it's just crazy to me how many android devices are selling.

P.S: Another part about this study that isn't mentioned.. how many people are just not buying new Windows PCs... because win8 sucks donkey balls?

what does this have to do with android? HTC is a separate company that uses the android OS.

that's like windows sucks because some company like Lenova has people quitting.

This is subjective. Android is a framework, you still have to pay for developers to give you a product that works on your product. iOS is free, because Apple doesn't pay to use it, yet Apple isn't blowing the OS numbers out of the water.

and...? stupid people gonna stupid which is why iphones exist. you can just blindly buy what apple tells you is the besstest ever.

some people actually do think for themselves and want to buy the highest quality product.

its called competition..and its a good thing (except for apple which is why they make like 75% margins on everything they sell you)

and windows/mac isn't free? you buy a phone, tablet, pc, mac, etc and the OS that is installed on it is "free" by being included in the price
