Myxer, which delivers mobile entertainment such as videos, ringtones, wallpapers, etc. to mobile devices has come up with some fun and interesting statistics that give more info about Android. First, Android seems to do a good job versus the iPhone in the West & Midwest. According to Myxer's mobile metrics, Android users outpace iPhone users in eight states, seven of those states being in the West & Midwest. There's also 'swing states' which are termed as states where the difference in users is less than 10%. Again, Android represents well in the West/Midwest region: three of the five swing states are in the West/Midwest.
The best reasoning for Android doing so well in the West/Midwest region of the US is likely more because the iPhone's sole carrier, AT&T, doesn't do well. If you take a look at AT&T's 3G coverage map, there's a gigantic hole in that whole region. Verizon's (home of the Droid and others) 3G network seems perfectly fine.
Other stats of note:
- Nexus One is the 'manliest': 75% of Myxer users with a Nexus One are male
- 67% of both Samsung Behold II & T-Mobile myTouch are female
- Nexus One has largest percentage (54%) of users over 24
- T-Mobile G1 has the largest percentage (63%) of users under 24
Even though these mobile metrics aren't without their biases, it's always fun to look at numbers like this. So, any Android users from those green states on the map? Let us know!
