Unix box in pocket

Addressable markets for high-end phones article has some interesting statistics: There were about 5.2bn adults on earth at the end of 2012 and roughly 1.1bn of them had ’smartphones’ at the end of 2012. Around 900m of smartphones ran either the iOS or Android. Both iOS and Android are based on Unix technology (iOS is based on Darwin BSD and Android is based on Linux).

It is pretty striking that almost a fifth of the earth’s adult population has a Unix box in their pocket.
