Android, iOS growing 10 times faster than PCs did in the 1980s

Research firm Flurry Analytics today announced that iOS and Android adoption is ten times greater than PC adoption at that technology's rapid-growth phase in the 1980s. The mobile platforms have amassed users twice as quickly as the Web during its go-go period in the 1990s, and three times faster than recent social networks.
According to Flurry, 640 million iOS or Android-based devices were in use last month. Out of that, 165 million were running in the U.S. and 128 million were in operation in China. The U.K. came in third place with 31 million units, followed by South Korea and Japan at 28 million and 22 million, respectively.
According to Flurry, iOS and Android adoption has grown 401 percent in China in the last year. Chile and Brazil round out the top three at 279 percent and 220 percent, respectively.
Flurry said that Singapore leads the world with 92 percent Android and iOS penetration within its borders. Hong Kong and Sweden followed with 87 percent and 86 percent penetration, respectively. The U.S. came in fifth place with 78 percent
