Android's funny-numbers problem

Although revealed frustrating earnings last night, it did say E-book visitors earnings were a gleaming identify in one more 1 / 4 of 2011, re-inifocing that earnings of these gadgets had tripled. But the organization declined to discuss specific earnings information or even say what amount of its e-reader earnings were for its E-book visitors Fireplace position, a low-end marketing supplement according to's version of The google Os os.

The not enough visibility about E-book visitors Fireplace position supplement earnings versions considerably with the results The the apple company organization company revealed a week ago of real earnings to customers: 15.4 thousand iPads in that period. And the not enough visibility doesn't stop with Amazon. New new new samsung, Acer, and other Os supplement designers also keep their real earnings results not yet founded.

Some assessment provide, which is how many gadgets were sent to services. But submission information are meaningless: Stores deliver back the ones that are unsold, and it's an old strategy known as direction examining to overship products to sustain a great 1 / 4, since few people be dependent the dividends later or change those results for real net earnings to clients. And some assessment nothing at all about supplement earnings. New new new samsung is such a organization, yet it's regarded to be the top organization of Os products.

Two companies -- The the apple company organization company and Samsung Flexibility -- do assessment real earnings. Samsung, regarded the second or third highest possible organization of Os products (before or after Acer), said it offered 200,000 Samsung samsung motorola xoom and Xyboard products in it all 1 / 4.

Given the not enough clear earnings verifying by most Os companies, many analysis companies, expert companies, and others are satisfied to issue their own information. There've been more than a number of supplement business opinions in the last two several weeks, for example. I don't believe in any of them, as they are all according to very not yet founded information -- mainly the same believe submission information that the companies assessment.

Among the most awesome were Technique Analytics' claims that Os products engaged 39.1 % of all products offered (not actually promoted to users) in it all 1 / 4 -- that's 10.5 thousand designs. Before the holidays, the trusted analysis companies, such as Gartner and IDC, were predicting around 25 %. Apple's iPad earnings (actual earnings to clients, that is) for that 1 / 4 beat everybody's opinions. And circumstantial information, such as Web traffic dimensions, suggest that iPads were at least 80 % of earnings.
