    Default One Third of iDevices in China Are Jailbroken


    With the Chinese release of the iPad 2 yesterday and the White iPhone previously, China has been in the spotlight as Apple's products are selling faster than ever. It was without peace with the iPad 2 selling out in 4 hours, riots, and similar actions with the White iPhone 4. But what I find more astounding is the percentage of iDevices that are jailbroken in China. The statistics tell the tale.

    Umeng, a firm that researches and collects date for mobile developers, released a packet of statistics regarding the number of jailbroken iDevices. According to their findings, 34.6% of all iDevices in China are jailbroken. Along with the above, they also released some other important data summarized below (not all examples are listed). The translation from Chinese was done by TechNode.
    • The iPhone 4 takes 54% of the iOS market while second place, the iPhone 3Gs, is only at 16.1%.
    • On average, 34.6% of all iDevices in China are jailbroken. However, just the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3Gs separate from each other, take up at least 40%+.
    • Only 27% of all iPads in China are jailbroken.

    Without a doubt, the results are incredible. This has also raised concern, as some analysts speculate this could have a major affect in the paid app market. Although they did not directly address the issue, it would seem Umeng is trying to discourage the notion that jailbreaking users will have an effect on the number of paid applications and downloads.

    The Chinese are also the world's largest purveyor of pirated apps for any platform. It's not rocket science to see jailbreaking opens the possibility of installing them. Yes, I know not everyone jailbreaks to pirate apps, exclusively or otherwise.

    H'm I wonder if the Chinese will release a Jailbreak, esp. for the iPad 2 (even though the iPad 2 has been shown jailbroken)

    Jailbroken is helpful in some aspects, but it gives a platform for the pirated applications as well.

    That's cause they see the potential in What a iPhone that's Jailbroken can do verses a Normal iPhone. I myself am glad I have J/B both my iPhone AND...iPad. I just hope that they don't find a Cure for THIS...disease

    74.3% of statistics are made up.
