Android Users Aren’t As Disloyal As Reported

ergo98 writes “As we discussed recently, a CNN article had a statement that ’77% of iPhone owners say they’ll buy another iPhone, compared to 20% of Android customers who say they’ll buy another Android phone.’ This was a gross misrepresentation. The CNN story now has up this note: ‘Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that 20% of Android customers say they’ll buy another Android phone. The survey actually revealed that 20% of all smartphone customers say they’ll buy an Android phone.’ The Yankee Group has further sought to clarify the situation by saying that the 20% are people who explicitly said they would buy a ‘Google-branded’ phone (which excludes the overwhelming majority of popular Android phones) — as Google gets out of the business of selling branded phones. Summarizing their position on Android: ‘Yankee Group still believes that Android will become the next breakout mobile phone platform, making it the third most popular platform behind iPhone and RIM’s Blackberry in installed base for at least the next five years.’”
