Android may have more devices in the wild than any other mobile platform but you wouldn’t know it by looking at holiday sales figures. As a percentage of total online sales, iOS was more than five times higher than Android...

Of course this is a guest comment who has probably never used an android OS.

It's very difficult to buy an android device as a gift because most droid users are rather particular about what they like and don't like. There are different processors, amounts of ram, internal storage, default UI, and things like the camera and screen. With iPhones, you don't get multiple choices for any of those. It's either a 5c or a 5s. That's it.

I love it. Now they are calculating how many people are using iOS devices to do purchases online. Is this really news? Is this really a useful report? Who cares what OS people use to make online purchases? This is the dumbest post I have ever seen. Anything to make Apple look good. That is hilarious.

Would you mobile iOS/Android people turn off your phones just for one holiday and look up into the room you're in, filled with people, and say Hello?!

I can't blame you for remaining incognito. You're obviously very experienced at being embarrassed.

Well this is the season of giving and e-tailers probably feel that a fools money is just as good as anyone else's and Apple buyers tend to be fools so they gave them bigger discounts because even fools have a right to be happy as well..

Well that was not the case at my local Best Buy. Why those numbers maybe overall, here locally in Texas that just wasn't the case. Samsung sold like wildfire not Apple. Apple only had there newest devices out for display where Samsung had all of theirs on display. From Tab 3 7", 8" and 10" models to the Note 8", 10" and 10" 2014 edition.

Both Apple and Samsung tablets sold really well. Both sold out a couple of times but stock came back in before and after Christmas.
There were a lot of people complaining about there Apple product and wanting to switch to Samsung. Not just talking about tablets, a good amount of people switched from iPhone to Samsungs S4. From what the customers were saying it was about iOS 7 was just to different, some even saying it was more like Android so they just decided to switch to Samsung and got a S4 or Note 3.
