Nielsen published mobile phone market report based on July data. Smartphones have now 40% over all market share. This means Apple and the Android camp have still a huge market to conquer. Nielsen also surveyed what these feature phone users plan to buy. Among those who say they are likely to get a new smartphone in the next year, approximately one third say they want their next smartphone to be an iPhone and one third say they want an Android device.
In the smartphone market share battle Android is still ahead with 40% followed by Apple iPhone with 28%. Basically nothing much changed. I am really excited for the market share distribution after the fall. Will Apple succeed with their iCloud, iOS 5 and iPhone 5 assault or can Google counter Apple huge release with Ice Cream Sandwich and Nexus Prime?

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.
