Looking at sales of smartphones in the fourth quarter of 2010, the issue is clear: the system with more smartphones sold is Android. All this taking into account that the figures are positive for all platforms, i.e., all manufacturers has sold more smartphones that Google’s system is the largest share in the same period in 2009, but in new sales.
He has lost the honor is Symbian. While Nokia enhances its sales compared to the same period of 2009 (from 23.9 to 31.0 million), its market share has gone from the 44.4 the 30.6 per cent. To see how bad that is this figure in perspective, just compare with Android, which has raised its share in the same period, from 8.7 to the 33.3 percent: one of every three smartphones sold is Android. In the global, Android has increased its sales in a year by more than 615 percent.
What surprises me most is that after all Symbian still sold, and pretty. I am aware that there are still Nokia fanboys, but every day I have more clear it is because they are accustomed to its interface, that has not improved since the time of the 5110 too for my taste. The change cost many.
Nor has gone wrong at Apple. Launch a unique terminal a year, double its sales and keep its market share in the 16 percent is something that only know how to do in Cupertino. But the rise of Android should escocer them.
As for RIM, sales also are up, although they lost nearly six points of market share. Either way, they keep giving me the impression of being the only “traditional” manufacturer of smartphones that have not gone astray, and they are adapting to the new tastes without neglecting those who prefer Qwerty keyboard.
The queue, Windows Phone 7. Almost double their sales, but they come to losing something of its already on its low fee. Here I think that Microsoft dragging two heavy slabs: its fame and its tardiness in coming. I’ve known iphoneros’s lifetime that they recognize that Windows Phone 7 is very good, which already is much say. But, honestly, look one of these terminals and receive jokes about blue screens is the same thing, while Microsoft has done a great job this time.
During the next few months, Android will continue its growth, helped by the wide variety of brands that have adopted it. Nokia and Symbian are unknown to my. Predictably, iOS will drop, as people will soon start saving for the replacement of the iPhone 5. And I can only assume that Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry OS will continue to sell more, unless that involves major changes in their market shares. Do you think like me?
