Java ME tech gains 212% in market share!

It's been said that you can prove pretty much anything with statistics. Since other companies love twisting around reality, I thought I'd take a stab at it. Take a look at this article (thanks to Eric A. for forwarding this to me) which points out that Java ME technology market share increased by 212.50%! Well... not really (you have to read the whole article carefully). But, it sure sounds nice. :-)

See:

Java ME grew by 212%!

Here's a quote:

 What Net Applications did instead 
 was sample data from browsers 
 visiting their clients’ websites 
 and report what percentage came 
 from machines running Windows, 
 Mac, Linux, etc.
Yeah, the 212.50% increase for Java ME was a result of Net Applications (creator of the data report) moving from one flawed reporting style to another. And, if you look at the absolute number for percent share of the market (0.25%), it's very small. Hey, we're tied with iPhone (which as the title of the article points out, supposedly lost half its market share (ha!)) and blow iPod Touch out of the water. :-) Not sure you can bank on that though... but, hey statistics don't lie... ;-)
