Postcards for Asymco: metropolitan distribution of views by operating system

Based on a reader query, I tried to find out where, by city, my readership is concentrated. I also sought to break this audience down by operating system.

Here are some observations:

For the last 30 days, here are the top operating systems used to reach Asymco.com, with the number of views from each.

  1. Macintosh 153,768
  2. Windows 101,329
  3. iPhone 78,716
  4. iPad 34,878
  5. Linux 7,262
  6. iPod 5,516
  7. Android 4,869
  8. (not set) 1,236
  9. BlackBerry 447
  10. SymbianOS 396

Looking at each OS, I can list the top cities where readers came from.

The first surprise for me is that Seoul is the most popular source for Android views.

The second is that London is so prominent. Although the US is the biggest source of traffic by far, London is a very concentrated source from the UK.

The third is how there seem to be no Blackberry readers in the SF area.
