Tim Cook about Android’s growing market share – “winning has never been about having the most”

During an interview with ‘All Things Digital’ Tim Cook is pointing out what kind of success matters to him.

Last ‘Black Friday’ 2012 there were twice as many ecommerce transactions (in the US) on iPad than all Android devices combined, not all Android tablets, but Android tablets plus phones.

And he might be right. It is not the market share, but the high percentage of usage.

We want to enrich people’s life

Have you heard this one?
Two farmers bought a truckload of watermelons, paying five dollars apiece for them. Then they drove to the market and sold all their watermelons for four dollars each. After counting their money at the end of the day, they realized that they’d ended up with less money than they’d started with.
“See!” said the one farmer to the other. “I told you we shoulda got a bigger truck.”

Or how about this one?
Android is winning because they got a bigger truck. True: Android’s market share is literally a joke

But IOS devices also enjoy an extraordinary positive level of user satisfaction

The customer is the judge
