Cameras, ultrabooks, tablets, and apps are part of any traveler’s satchel these days. Today’s traveler is also adopting more high tech clothing such as breathable hiking boots, Nike’s contouring lightweight FlyKnit shoes, and UV-filtering shirts from SunGrubbies.com. High end luggage makers such as Tumi, are getting a run for their money from companies such as Rimowa. And there are numerous makers of wallets that foil unauthorized RFID chip readers from scanning your passport.

Infographic Shows China’s Preferences for Android and iOS Apps and Ads

Infographic shows Android and iOS preferences in China mobile market


Infographics can tell us a lot in simple terms.  This infographic from Guohe Ad, a mobile advertising management platform, shows how the largest mobile market in the world, China, is consuming iOS and Android apps.

Here are some of the discoveries in the survey:  It’s no surprise that Apple had a head start on app marketing in China by accepting China’s RMB currency as payment early on.  Since the iPhone is more expensive, it attracts a more affluent user who purchases apps and pays for the privilege of the apps being ad-free. But only 13 percent of Android users would rather buy an app that is ad-free than get a free app that is supported through inserted ads.

You’ll find a lot of interesting points in this infographic as well as the study it is based on, which can be found here.
