Verizon and Android are still the top names in smartphonemarket. Both have far more shares than other rivals. According to a study report published by USA’s researchfirmKantar Worldpanel ComTech, Android alone holds 51.5% sales share of the smartphone market in Q2 2013. iOS is trailing behind with 42.5% sales share. Yet iOS shares have been increased 3.3% from previous year, but not enough to beat Android's. Windows increased its share by 1.1% and now holds 4% smartphone sales share. Other brands hold a very nominal percentage.
Talking about mobile operators, Verizon is still on top. In fact it is the only brand which gains 1.9% more subscriber shares than previous year. Verizon again leads by 36.9% share. AT&T trails behind with 26.5% share, Sprint with 13.8% and T-Mobile comes 4th with 10%.
“Verizon continues to lead in this second quarter of 2013, driven by its ability to provide a range of highly demanded brands and models, which has ultimately led to the carrier capturing the most sales from all three top OS brands,” said Dominic Sunnebo, global consumer insight director at Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
