Our friend Daniel Ruby, analyst for ad firm Chitika, has released a new tool for tracking Mobile usage stats. The page is chock-full of goodies (at least, for those of us nerdy enough to dig stats). The most interesting highlights:
- The original Motorola Droid still commands nearly 30% of the Android market (29.9%)
- The HTC EVO 4G has taken second place at ~8% (7.96)
- The iPhone accounts for 57% of iOS usage; the iPod accounts for 22% and the iPad clocks in at 21%
- For all the fuss over Android fragmentation, iOS fragmentation is worse.

EVO 4G is notorious for its battery problems - they've been plaguing the phone since before it even came out. I personally don't think the battery life is too drastically different from the Hero, for instance, but it's still pretty bad. Chances are that if you want to last through the day, you won't.
: These fit the HTC Hero too! (Thanks to @xMPoly
for the tip
Update #2: Fit the Droid Incredible perfectly as well!

This article mentions rooting and flashing of custom ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here
for additional information
Remember the 3-click SimpleRoot app that brought full root, including permanently unlocking NAND (that's something unrevoked doesn't do), to your EVO 4G? I sure do, as that's exactly how I rooted my EVO. However, If you applied the latest god forsaken EVO OTA, you may have found that that version of SimpleRoot no longer worked.
