Apple Gains while Android Loses its US Smartphone Market Share

comScore lent its data from MobiLens and Mobile Metrix to the world at large regarding certain statistics. The US smart phone market shares for August 2013 were displayed like an open book. And way up there on top was Apple Incorporated with 47% of the OEM market share. Google Android meanwhile was at 51.6% of the overall pie. And 

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. 

The ailing BlackBerry had a share of 4% while Microsoft occupied merely 3.2%. Symbian meanwhile got a puny 0.3% which was even less than Microsoft. Thus the various players on the scene that were vying with each other got their due rewards and penalties as per the amount of hard work and dedication put into their products

Apple has always had a perfectionist streak somewhere at its core. Implanted by the genius that was Steve Jobs, a man known more for his thinking skills than his hygiene, Apple is currently headed by Tim Cook who is a mild mannered yet highly clever man. It remains to be seen if Tim can copy the successful aura of the deceased Steve Jobs.

About the Geek Mind

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.
