People who own iPhones use them to watch a lot more video than people who own Android phones. Twice as much, according to Web video company Ooyala.
The main caveat here is that Ooyala isn’t measuring all Web video everywhere — just the stuff that it serves up via its own service and player. But Ooyala handles a lot of video — it boasts some 200 million unique viewers worldwide — so it has at least some insight into the way people watch stuff. The other caveat is that this gap will probably close over time.
