From the quantity and quality of posts on the various general whining threads here and on t.m.o, I would have put money on the winning category being "~12" :classic_laugh:

all those canceled their order already πŸ˜„

It's gonna be interesting to see the results πŸ˜„

After about 67 votes so far, the oldies (40+) have a narrow lead over 25-30 group. πŸ™‚

It's quite surprising to see so many votes in 18-24 age bracket and so few in 36-40...

These trends can ofcourse change with more votes and a bigger sample size.Β 

But it may be promising for F(x)Tec to eventually have a large customer base.

I believe that the largest target demographic are those who already had a UNIX-beard when the first Nokia Communicator was launched.. πŸ™‚Β And subsequently, also the largest group of actual buyers. Hence, I'm not sure that all forum members voted honestly in this poll. :P

A lot of people seem to think like you, but in my opinion the poll is correct.
I myself are in my 20's and my first (and best) smartphone was the famous N900.

Hwkb are the superior form of input. And everyone who was once used to it knows that no matter what Age. It has nothing to to with not getting the new stuff.

You should have made it 36-41 so it had a bigger catchment πŸ˜„

As a math guy allow me to make a bit of stick splitting. The closed age intervals are unequal in size. 6 7, 6, 5 resp. 5 years this muddles the results slightly, as this in it self would give a bias towards the younger groups.

I mean if we (for the sake of argument) assumed one person in all ages from 15 to 64 had voted, the numbers would be 6%, 12% 14%, 12%, 10%, 10%, 48% 50%.

So surprisingly we see more votes less than 36 than an even distribution, and less votes 36 and above. My guess is that it reflects the age distribution on the ones active on the forum more than the distribution of the buyers.

(Edit: Numbers corrected)

Its a good point younger may participate more.Β  I wonder how many of the older range are in the Tech industry in some form πŸ˜‰

The closed age intervals are 7,6,5,5.

But not sure how these survey people come up with the age brackets. Had taken a sample distribution from Nielsen.

Well in this example I would argue that the data collection possibly had more details than the display of the result.
Since in this graphic only one category is relevant it is not too bad to merge the last n groups. Still does not accurately show the results.
You know what they say: Never trust a chart you didn't manipulate yourself.

Don't try to read the chart, it's not relevant. It's only to show example for age distribution used to collect data for mobile users.

Ooops I was too quick there, but the point is the same, that it is uneven..

That is what I mean, the Chart does not show the distribution for the data collection, only the distribution of the data for the presentation!

That's an interesting point, but how can you be sure they are not the same?

Edit: Ok got it. The would simply mention their age at the time of collection.Β

The collection is not problematic, and can easily be accumulated.

The issue is that the interval sizes are different, so even if the underlying distribution is even, you would see an uneven presentation .

I can't, I just said I think this presentation is accumulated to display a single fact (nearly 50% are in this group)

Sure, I just wanted to point out, that it may be a bad idea to take the data distribution out of a result presentation.
This presentation seems to be tailored to support the "50% are in this group" fact.

I think his point was that he used a grouping seen elsewhere, more that the grouping it self. And yes indeed that grouping seems tailored for their purpose. πŸ™‚

Why?

Do you participate in any poll on any site you are using? I don't. πŸ˜‰

Seems like most of the active forum users have voted.Β  I declare those over 40 winners!

If this poll is ever repeated, could break down the old folks a bit more, and make equal sized groups...Β  to see the real winner... i.e. 18-24, 25-31, 32-38, 39-45, 46-51, 52-58, 59+

I suspect if you did 5 year intervals out to 70, you'd end up with a classic positively skewed frequency distribution with most being in the 25-30 interval and the frequency dropping off slowly with older and older people. πŸ˜‰

Why don't you go ahead and start the poll, it only takes a click to vote and we all have the time since we are still waiting for shipping updates.. πŸ™‚
