It is hard to believe any of these surveys when they all conflict so much...some say that android had 60% a year ago, this one says only 40% now.

It means about as much as Howard Stern saying he is the king of all media, or Michael Jackson saying he's the king of pop, excuse me the queen of pop. Nothing against android, but these little research firms are popping up like weeds now. Apple has an installed base of idiot reviewers.
