Its only natural due to the fact that their economy is on the rise and they have triple the popularion of the us, as handheld media becomes more mainstream. It also explains why they have the largest carries in the world. As more people can become globaly aware of everyhting the better the world is off.

And sooooooo many hackers. They probably have bots in place actively monitoring both Apple and Google in the States. They could probably tell you what the next iPhone/iPad will look like and when it is going to released.

They're built there so they already know what the next iPhone/iPad looks like.

so many people with repressed freedom. what good is having some of the best smartphones and mobile computers if your every online activity is monitored and many of the best websites in the world are banned?

i pity the chinese. couldn't easily break free from their oppressive government.

Come on Alan, you know that this is not a surprise considering the shear amount of people in the country. We couldn't hope to be the largest in everything especially android or iOS users. The US is only 300 million+.

I don't understand what could possibly account for those huge dips in smart devices in the US market. How could the number go down by over 10 million in 2 months? Makes me question the accuracy of the chart.
