Google Sites was the highest mobile media asset while Facebook happened to be the best application around for miles. Over 145 million individuals in the United States are proud owners of those fancy gadgets known as smart phones. After Apple, the four rank-holders are: Samsung, HTC, Motorola and LG, which have 24.3%, 7.4%, 6.9% and 6.7% of the market shares respectively.

It remains to be seen if Tim can copy the successful aura of the deceased Steve Jobs.
