I did a mini-survey on Twitter earlier today. 350 people answered two questions. It asked what phone type they had and if they had a QR scanner on their phone. The results:
Do you have a QR code reader on your phone?
Yes 229 - 65%
No 93 - 27%
A what now? (Don’t know) 28 - 8%
What type of phone did they have?
iPhone (any type) 188 - 54%
Android based smartphone 114 - 33%
Nokia 26 - 7%
Windows Phone 6 - 2%
Blackberry 7 - 2%
Other 9 - 3%
Which platform likes QR codes more?
74.5% of Android owners had QR readers, 69.6% of iPhone owners had QR readers.
The results to me were surprising, the small marketing and tech industry drenched network would not represent the general masses but I still would not have thought the amount of people with QR code readers on their smartphones were so high.
