iPhone Users Happier than Android Users says AdMob

Are you likely to recommend your device to a friend or colleague? AdMob asked that very question to 963 respondents (February, 2010) whom picked up some good numbers. While it’s a small group, 91% and 88% of iPhone and iPod touch owners would recommend their devices to friends and family, compared to only 84% for Android and 69% for WebOS recommendations.

Asia is pretty happy with Apple products (not just knockoffs) as well. Japan and China ranked 2nd and 4th for unique iPads that showed up in AdMob’s analytics. 58% of all iPad users reside in the United States, however, with Japan in a far second at 5%.

The metrics also indicate that iPod touch owners are download the most, averaging 12 apps a month. iPhone and Android owners are only downloading nine new apps a month. Though I imagine if AdMob ever surveyed MacStories and its readers, it might be more like 100 apps a month for the iPhone and iPod touch. We’re good at screwing the numbers like that.
