I will tell you a secret:
facts: first iPads bought just iPhones owners (90 %), so they buy every sh*t ;)
so people started to think by mistake they needed tablets
so thanks to Apple's inferior tablet we have superiority with Android widely spread, see:

I think the bigger story is....I didn't even know Android had a significant presence in the office.

Do these statistics of mobile usage on a certain OS really matter?

As a Android fanboi having Apple in the corporate environment makes tons of sense because Apple stays stagnant which is a blessing and a curse. Businesses don't have to worry about upgrading phones and tablets each year and specific business apps don't have to get updated as much. That same app will work on all models.
Android gear changes to fast for the corporate environment and there's too many models in the field. As a consumer I love this model because one device does not fit everyone; business situations yes.

People think "Apple is a status symbol" Correct me if i am wrong, Maybe that's the reason most of the staff in the office buys iPhone.

yes....simply they are stupid and don't see they have just an iConboard you really could not work with: lack of free copy, lack of USB connect, lack of default app selection.....really, just a board with icons
these innovations are real:

let it go.. there are millions of people that don't need USB port etc... example because is friday for me... cars come with loaded options and some come with basics... not everyone buys the loaded with options car... good job promoting Android.. but you don't convince anyone

AS long as share prices fall Apple can take 100% of share from Android who cares :)
