US ecommerce  stands at $263billion compared to $4.5trillion




The 2013 Numbers on E-Commerce in the USA | ExportX: "The Census Bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce reports the value of the overall U.S. retail sector at US$4.5 trillion in 2013, growth of 4.2% on the previous year. 

Retail sales up 4.2 percent is healthy economic growth, but it’s dwarfed by the growth in e-commerce, which is growing four times faster. Within the overall U.S. retail sector, retail e-commerce in 2013 grew 17% to $263 billion and is taking an ever-increasing share of the total market. E-commerce represented 5.8 percent of total retail sales in 2013, up from 5.2 percent in 2012.

U.S. e-commerce is forty-times the value of e-commerce in Australia, and around 100 times bigger than e-commerce in New Zealand. To put that another way, achieving a 4% market share in the USA would exceed 100% market share in Australia and New Zealand combined."

The Cost of Owning " Android Smartphone vs cost of owning an iOS "


Infographic: The Price Gap Between iOS and Android Is Widening | Statista


The Average Cost Comparison between owning  Android vs iOS Mobile OS  :

Though its  hardly a surprise that the average selling price of Apple's iPhones is higher than that of Android smartphones. as What is surprising though, is the fact that the price gap between iOS and Android devices is actually widening.T

In 2013 the price gap was $374, up from just $261 in 2010. Despite Apple's introduction of the (only slightly) cheaper iPhone 5C, the avrage iPhone selling price was more than twice as high as the average price of an Android smartphone

This can be explained in 2 ways

THE SOFTWARE SIDE
The costing between the   App Developers of both the mobile OS,  Android and iOS is not the same . This is due to the fact that 
The  “ developers cost “ for creating an app for Apple ( iOs )  and Android  is higher in Apple’s iOS as Apple pays more to the developers , hence the price point charged to consumers is high


THE HARDWARE SIDE:   While the cost of manufacturing for both the OEM’s  should not be much of a difference given the volumes both Apple and Google enjoy. However  the difference  comes down to the Brand Brand Perception and the Coolness Factor which Apple enjoy

Apple  have positioned themselves more on the consumer side (  the fashionista crowd.. led by loyal and core Mactinosh users who were early adopters and had history on its side to boast of

.Android however has no History to boast off ..neither it had the " coolness of its Founder  and its growth has not been organic ( as it supplies to other OEMS,s too) including Samsung, Ericsson, Xolo, Micromax, LG , Lenevo  and Motorola )
 That's why, despite  and inspite of declining  in market share, Apple still takes the lion's share of profits in the smartphone industry
