From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Average Age of Windows Phone 7 Users
With the release of WP7, XDA forum member domineus was curious to find out the age demographic breakdown of WP7 users. In fact, the XDA member required the information for a class assignment, but we thought it would be interesting to take a look ourselves.
Out of 250 votes, the majority of WP7 users (or members looking to purchase within the year) are 25-34 years old with 38.4% of votes , followed very closely by 18-24 year olds with 32.8% of votes. The age band with the third most votes are the 35-44 year olds whilst lagging well behind are the 65+ year olds.
The results are not that surprising, but would be interesting to compare against the age bands of other mobile operating systems such as Android. What do you think?
