    Howdy – this is my first time posting, finally as a PHEV/EV intender! After lurking through a slew of green car forums for the past few months, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of threads regarding mobile phone interoperability for the new generation of PHEV/EVs.

    I’ve also been keeping up with the apps being introduced by the OEMs and others. And it got me thinking – what is the most predominant phone used by PHEV / EV drivers? Nielsen just released the following info on overall phone OS market share, and I figured – let’s see how our niche of the market compares!

    I went ahead and made a short 60 second survey on qualtrics (loved using this in school). I figured I’d post it on the car forums I frequent, and then after a week or so, I’ll post the results.

    Full disclosure: I’m working on a project where the info will be more than helpful, but I hoped posting the results would be interesting for the community. Feel free to answer if you’re curious…[FONT=&quot]https://qtrial.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2h74hzBCwsj2QXq[/FONT] :D

    Have you noticed any adverse functionality due to operation on an iOS device other than the iPhone, or does it work peachy keen?


    Sorry for the misstep - I tried finding the best place to post it as I thought Prius drivers might be some of the first to make the switch to a PHEV/EV.

    Please direct me to the best place to post :p

    My fav mobile device is my car. :D I have a cell phone (not a smart phone) which I'd gladly throw in the ocean if it wasn't necessary for my business. I would disconnect in a New York second if I could. Hate the damn things. :mad:

    It doesn't seem to matter any more. I think I'll start a thread on fishing ... or baking with an easy bake oven. Something about the PHEV forum that's a magnet for everything non PHEV.
    :rolleyes:

    Survey is up to 44 responses! Keep 'em coming!

    Some truly interesting results. More importantly - 60 seconds.

    Results - hot off the presses! Certainly attests to how close the two main platforms are for EV drivers. Particularly interesting were the changes from Q3 to Q4 --

    After 79 complete responses on 6/13/11...
