There have been recent reports that the iPhone is losing it’s smartphone market share.
However – we will prove that the iPhone is still in the lead – via porn.
Is there a better marker to measure the smartphone marketshare than porn? I think not.
To prove the iPhone is still in the lead, we’ll compare it with 2 other leading smartphone brands: BlackBerry and Treo.
The method is simple – comparing Google search results for porn among the 3 smartphone brands.
Search term: "iPhone Porn"
Search term: "Blackberry Porn"
Search term: "Treo Porn"
Search term: "iPhone Sex"
Search term: "Blackberry Sex"
Search term: "Treo Sex"
According to our "smartphone porn study",
the iPhone beats the BlackBerry 4:1
the iPhone beats Treo 8:1
The articles claiming that the iPhone is losing smartphone marketshare have the following data:
iPhone: 19.2% of the smartphone market
Blackberry: 44.5% of the smartphone market
Treo: 13.4% of the smartphone market
However – our data has the iPhone and BlackBerry reversed.
The point? The marketshare data presented by various anonymous analyst firms is just as meaningless as the smartphone porn data presented by us.
