10% of the iPhones are jailbroken


New report by Pinch Media indicates that almost 10% of the iPhones activated are jailbroken. Let's remember that all the generations of iPhone have gone under the process of jailbraking, allowing their users to modify appearance, run background processes and install apps sourced outside iTunes. 

A piece of research by the same company showed that up to 40% of users of a jailbroken iPhone have used a pirated app. These number must be taken in consideration when looking at the AppStore market and I would like to see how they compare with other phone manufacturers, and specially with the videogame industry. Xbox recently banned from their online services more that half a million of Xbox Live users due to violation of terms of use. Could we see a similar manouver from Apple?
