iPhone Rules: Apple Dethrones Nokia As Top Smartphone Manufacturer



+ Add a Comment



1. Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop determined the situation was "clearly dissapointing" and that there were "greater than expected" issues when ***Nokica***(is this a pun or typo?) moved from the Symbian operating system to Microsoft's Windows Phone.

2. While Apple's iOS trails Google's Android operating system in number of worldwide users, this is largely based on the wide number of smartphone manufacturers who create devices running Android.

iOS does NOT trail android in sells, only in activations! (remember that android is updated every week for *bugs* thus causing more activations, Apple includes ONLY Sells in its activation count!)

Thanks, BWM. That was a typo, and it is fixed; sorry about that and thanks for the assist. For #2, I was referencing the ComScore data, which stated "Google Android ranked as the top operating system with 38.1 percent of U.S. smartphone subscribers, up 5.1 percentage points. Apple strengthened its #2 position with 26.6 percent of the smartphone market". Interesting point about the activation vs. sells...
