U.S. household spend more and more on Apple gadgets: average sum grows to $444 In 2011
While Android is easily the world’s most popular operating system with no close competitor in sight, when it comes to the U.S. it’s a much closer tie with Apple. And the latest data show that U.S. households are spending more and more on Apple devices each year.

The average U.S. household spent a whopping $444 on Apple products in 2011, a huge growth from the $295 average in 2010 and nearly triple the $150 spent in 2007, according to Morgan Stanley analysis.

A recent Reuters article publicized the figure and called out on Americans for paying the ‘Apple tax.’ And while tax might be a bit too strong of a word to describe users’ wilful purchases, the amount spent on Apple products is staggering.

Online discounters from CouponCodes4U.com claim $1 out of $25 spent on technology, is spent on Apple devices.
