Love these things, they're neat to look at. Also note, Android developers love their outdoor activities, but also love to drink and party. :p

Also, 54% do not develop for Phone & Tablet, while 46% develop both.

Also interesting that Samsung was the phone of choice for developers by a massive market, although they have made the last two Nexus Devices.

Not really surprised myself. Samsung has made the best hardware for the past year with the Galaxy series. HTC still has momentum from when they were king so they're up there as well.

None of the other manufacturers have made developer phones either (the Nexus series) so that probably plays a factor too.

Not really surprising actually, Samsung has really reached out to the dev community whereas Motorola has actively hindered them. I remember before the Galaxy S2 came out, they sent a copy of the phone to the CyanogenMod team so they could start working on it. Whereas Motorola has gone with locked bootloaders and actively tries to halt independent developers.

LOL more iPhones than Motorolas among Android devs.

Funny, the giant red ball over India tells me the same thing. :D

lol I noticed that as well.

I think it would be really interesting to see the actual comparison numbers for "Free or Paid?" between iOS and Android.

Samsung will probably end up owning the world ;). I work with dozens of South Koreans, and to a man (and woman), they are by far the most industrious, conscientious, intelligent, and honest people in our organization.

The thing is, an App can be free, but it still makes money due to ads in the app.

Also, since when is iPhone a brand? Shouldn't that say Apple in the list with Samsung, HTC, ect.
