As evidenced by what? AIUI Amazon do not reveal sales volumes for any of their readers / tablets. No idea about the Nexus.

This forum is for anything to do with light aviation
Perhaps more interesting is looking at Flyer Forum members' usage of browsers/platforms. One particularly juicy thread link attracted 706 click-throughs:
Breakdown of browsers:
Mobile Safari 12
Does this mean anything? Not sure. I would have thought Chrome would be more popular, and where's the rest of Europe?

I use a Linux machine but with Windows VM's running on it, so its only picking up browsers not any Host OS's.
Tim, can you justify that last statement. Based on what evidence?
The fact that iOS is used by everyone using your applications, merely means that many bought the device, because they saw someone playing with one at the airfield, liked it in action, found the only way to get the function is to get an iPAD. Thats certainly the case where I fly from.
I am aware of a fair few pilots that use Android (myself included) because, well, its a low cost alternative to iOS and I quite like choice of hardware (and no ripoff data charges by phone providers who identify your device and force a different charging scheme).
To Date Ive resisted ordering any apple devices* for a number of years because I can see they charge a premium for their product, however I do see some benefits of having OS tied to Hardware, one vendor etc. Ive resisted over many trips to the US too, where this hardware is much lower in cost.
*not quite true: Ordered and then cancelled as they failed to meet delivery dates, then re-ordered another one and thats cancelled as they failed to deliver it.. apple have not covered themselves in glory. Im now deciding do I bother again...can I really justify it...but I do love the skydemon product.

Purely by personal observation of who got what for Christmas in the family, and who decided to buy what for whom having seen who got what for Christmas.
The Kindle Fire HD proved very popular - obviously, personally I'm a vile Apple fanboi - but Amazon's even more full-on locked-down eco-system makes the Kindle Fire HD a very smooth and intuitive thing, despite the Android underpinnings.
I'm here at the field....I fight for my meals...I get my Yak into my living......
I have now got my iPad mini cellular, after using SD on my iPad 2 with the stand alone Garmin GLO, the mini is a great size and SD does everything I want, pay your money take your choice I say, but I do find that most people I come across who are Applephobes are also foodies or wine snobs, maybe we could get a graph for that
Depends what the website is though - you can read anything you like into statistics!
Is it the sort of thing that someone will read in bed on their iPad? Or is it something a corporate would be more at home with... I'm guessing the latter given that most of your hits have come from 64-bit machines running IE.
....and I bought the iPad Mini for the very same reason, Skydemon is brilliant on it....
