If Android Were a Single Person, Here’s What He Would Look Like

Imagine if all the world’s Android users were mashed up into a single person. If you’re picturing a nerdy guy in jeans, you’re not far off.

The folks at BlueStacks have created a composite Mr. Android, using data from Nielsen, as well as their own Facebook poll.

As expected, Mr. Android is a guy. There’s also a 37 percent chance that he’s wearing glasses and a nearly two-thirds chance he is clad in jeans rather than khakis or dress pants.

And, in good news for the geeks, there is a 62 percent chance that Mr. Android has a significant other.

The full portrait of Mr. Android is below. By the way, all of us at AllThingsD are curious what Mr. (or Ms.) iOS would look like, so if anyone wants to crunch those numbers, feel free to send them along.
