WSJ "Best Mobile OS" Poll Update

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal posed the question, "Who makes the best mobile operating system?". When we shared the poll with you, Microsoft trailing Apple by about 10% and Android was way out ahead of everyone.

Almost twenty-four hours later, Google is still leading the pack but look at Microsoft! The Windows Phone has more than doubled Apple's vote percentage.

Granted this isn't the most scientific of polls but it does show that Microsoft has a decent following. Either that or someone's figured out how to vote more than once.  We're not sure if when voting will be cut off for this poll but if you haven't voted, it might be worth checking in on.

  • No, this poll, like most online polls, shows the power of blind allegiance and groupthink. It's been posted on various sites and now users of various platforms are making it their duty to make sure their preferred company wins.
  • Of course, that's what makes it fun, lol. I don't think anyone takes these polls seriously and if they do, well...they have other issues in life.
  • Unfortunately, the those among us who don't keep tabs on web culture take online polls much more seriously than you or i. i imagine a good portion of those would be WSJ readers.
  • hah, you guys should really check out those poll numbers again.
    While I realize these polls are highly biased, it's still pretty awesome to see wp leading. Oh, and it seems that, at the very least, the website is using a cookie or ip tracking system to try and deter repeat votes...
