CHART OF THE DAY: iOS Smashed Android Where It Counts On Black Friday

Adobe, IBM, and Custora recently released their numbers from Black Friday: Based on those companies’ data charted for us by BI Intelligence, iOS claimed the lion’s share of ecommerce revenue — more than double that of Android, across the board.
