    Please keep on being in denial, I enjoy watching this droid troll freak show. Looking forward to more idiotic math, mommy boy way pass their legal age still living with their parents and complaint a sub $1000 phone being expensive. And above all, haters trying to be hip and different, when you are just a clone without knowing it.

    Going on and on about trolls makes you exactly that . Don't feed them and they'll die off.

    Your confused.  Mobile sales made up as the article says nearly 29% of online sales.  out of that 29% iOS took 83% and android took 4.6%.

    The rest was split up between the other mobile os's. The rest of online sales were by computer which took up 71% of online sales.

    Keep living in that fantasy, most of those devices are usb dongles and dumb phones that have no functionality at all.

    LOL Another troll fantasy.   Products Like the iPhone 5s that outsold samsungs pitiful GS4 two month sales in the first week?  Is that the niche product were talking about.  Oh and lets talk about tablets.  The iPad Air is the fastest selling tablet in history.  Thats the other niche product?

    Then lets talk about profits shall we.  Apples products command 75% of product revenue for all mobile devices.  Hell the only one making money on the android side is Samsung, and they just announced poorer that expected earnings and warned there investors in there latest quarterly filing.

    Are you sure about this?  iPhone is about 42% of the smart phone market in the US, but iOS also includes iPod Touch and iPad.  When those are included, I would guess that iOS has a higher market share than Android.  


    The report does include tablets too.  where it compares phone sales to tablet sales.

Plus we keep hearing about how margins in the TV business are slim, so I can't imagine Samsung is making a lot of money off their TVs. Are they more diversified than Apple? Yeah, but I think it's pretty clear that mobile is a big part of their business now.

    They actually don't there IM division (smart phones, cell tower equipment and computers) makes almost 90% of there money, thats according to there latest quarterly.  If they lost sales on there Galaxy line it would hurt horribly for them.

    That part of the article is referring to ALL mobile traffic.  Of all mobile traffic, roughly 50% of it was used for online shopping.  Of that 50%, 80% was using an iOS device to shop.
