In an article at The Loop, Jim Dalrymple argues that you can't compare the iPhone to Android.
Here is the first giant flaw — you may have noticed in the headline of this story. You cannot compare Android to an iPhone. That’s comparing an operating system to a hardware device.
The man has a point. He correctly points out that you wouldn't compare a single model of Mercedes against all cars that GM makes. The same is true for the iPhone/Android comparison.
Dalrymple points out that it is more appropriate to compare operating systems.
Now, let’s take a look at the operating systems in the U.S. According to reports released this month by comScore, if you factor in all of the devices that use iOS including iPhones, iPads and iPodtouches, Apple reached 37.9 million people. Android, according to the data, reached 23.8 million on phones and tablets.
That’s a 59 percent lead for iOS over Android.
Logical and true.
