    A new report suggests that the popularity of Google’s Android OS is due to peak in 2012. The market will begin a major shift towards a strong Microsoft Windows platform.


    Microsoft Windows predicted to take a big bite out of Google’s Android starting in 2013


    The market research firm IDC just released the details of its latest Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker report. The firm predicts that, while cell phone shipments will reach 1.8 billion units this year (compared to 1.7 billion in 2011), the numbers reflect stalled growth when compared to previous years. The major cause seems to be the beginning of a rapid decline in sales for feature phones. The IDC forecasts the lowest annual growth rate in their sales since 2009.

    Motorola Droid RAZR, Motorola Defy, Motoluxe, Motorola Xoom


    Sony Xperia U, Sony Xperia ION, Sony Xperia Play


    LG Optimus L7, LG Optimus 4G LTE and the Optimus Pad


    IDC analyst Kevin Restivo was quoted as saying, “The smartphone parade won’t be as lively this year as it has been in past. The mobile phone user-transition from feature phones to smartphones will continue in a gradual but unabated fashion. Smartphone growth, however, will increasingly be driven by a triumvirate of smartphone operating systems, namely Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7.”


    Microsoft Windows predicted to take a big bite out of Google’s Android starting in 2013


    The smartphone market is expected to continue growing over the next five years, but IDC sees 2012 as the start of a major shift. Android has a big lead in the number of devices sporting its popular OS – predicted to be a 61% share by year-end. Apple’s iOS takes second place with 20.5%, one-third the size of Google’s market. The upstart Microsoft Windows/Windows Mobile will probably end 2012 with a 5.2% share of the market, less than one-tenth the size of Android. By 2016, the IDC says the numbers will look significantly different.


    They predict that smartphone shipments will continue to grow through 2016, but this timeframe will see a big decline in Android OS use. It will probably peak in 2012 and then begin to lose significant market share to the Windows Phone platform. Apple’s iOS will probably see some decline as well.

    Here are the IDC’s predictions. Between 2012 and 2016, Android’s share of the global market will decline more than 7% - from 61% to 52.9%. Apple’s iOS will become slightly less popular, going from 20.5% to 19%. Microsoft will be the big winner, with a quadrupling of its market share from 2012’s measly 5.2% to 19.2% in 2016. This obviously surpasses iOS as the No.2 smartphone platform in the world, not to mention ought to cause Google execs some sleepless nights.


    “Underpinning the smartphone market is the constantly shifting OS landscape,” IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said. “Android will maintain leadership throughout our forecast, while others will gain more mobile operator partnerships (Apple) or currently find themselves in the midst of a major transition (BlackBerry and Windows Phone/Windows Mobile). What remains to be seen is how these different operating systems – as well as others – will define and shape the user experience beyond what we see today in order to attract new customers and encourage replacements.”


    IDC expects RIM’s smartphone market share to stay relatively flat for the next few years. It will probably hold steady at around 6%. Other smartphone platforms can only expect a mere 3% of the market by 2016, down from 7.2% in 2012. Samsung’s Tizen platform makes up the majority of that 3%. Sorry Samsung. Maybe you should concentrate on Galaxy S IV and beyond.

    Samsung has done well with its Galaxy series, and it has another round of numbers to confirm it. With more than 50 million Android phones sold all over the world, Samsung has reason to gloat. They’ve racked up some impressive sales numbers with just a few well-designed and well-received devices.


    Samsung’s Galaxy line sells 50 million devices worldwide


    Protect your Galaxy S3 form the hustle and bustle of everyday life with the latest Samsung Galaxy S3  accessories.


    The Galaxy line has created a dynasty to rival the royal Apple family. Samsung Galaxy S sales hit 24 million in two years. Then the Galaxy S II outperformed its ancestor with 28 million sales in 13 months, making it Samsung’s fastest selling device ever. Now add 8 million more sales since late February and there’s no sign of S II’s momentum slowing. Well maybe its progeny Galaxy S3 will have something to say about that. It’s already racked up 9 million pre-orders.


    While Samsung has carved a reputation as a leader in mobile technology and devices , it is also gained notoriety for being pretty slow with bringing cell phone accessories and tablet accessories to the market. Industry leading manufacturers continue to provide the greatest selection of top brand accessories from Bags and Sleeves, Batteries, Bluetooth Headsets and Bluetooth Car Kits, Car Holders, Cases and Skins, Data Cables, Earbuds and Headsets, Keyboard and Protectors, Memory Cards, Screen Protectors, Speakers and Docks as well as Stylus and Pens.


    Samsung Galaxy Note had a nice showing, too. In a world where you’re either a tablet or you’re a smartphone, this hybrid carved out a 7 million-unit niche since its debut in October 2011.


    The statistics released didn’t cover the entire Galaxy family. It would be nice to see how the poorer relations, Galaxy Ace and Galaxy Y, fared. The next couple of months are going to be very exciting for everything Samsung.

    A new, bolder Samsung is working on building its own loyal legions of fans. Lately they’ve been doing everything right: building great cell phones like the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 X, Galaxy S2 LTE, Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab tablets.


    Samsung has put out some entertaining commercials showing lines of iPhone-obsessed hipsters who’ll buy anything Apple because they think it makes them look cool. While those commercials were definitely fun, Samsung is sending a big message:  Samsung’s products are cool because they are extraordinary, not because they are “Samsung.”


    In order to take a chunk out of Apple’s market share, Samsung knows it needs to redefine the way its products are viewed by consumers.  The head of Samsung marketing Younghee Lee told AllThingsD in an interview awhile ago,” Especially in U.S., people are obsessed with Apple. It’s time to change people’s attention.” Lee said Samsung knows it has to figure out how to “engage with consumers from the bottom of their heart, and not just be a big and functional and rational and reasonable brand.” Samsung is looking to create an Apple-like fervor for its products.


    Samsung kicking Apple to the curb


    Samsung has a reputation for being pretty slow with bringing its accessories online. Industry leading manufacturers continue to provide the greatest selection of top brand cell phone accessories  from Bags and Sleeves, Batteries, Bluetooth Headsets and Bluetooth Car Kits, Car Holders, Cases and Skins, Data Cables, Earbuds and Headsets, Keyboard and Protectors, Memory Cards, Screen Protectors, Speakers and Docks as well as Stylus and Pens.


    It looks like Samsung is starting to accomplish its mission.  Lines formed outside of a few London retailers earlier this week in anticipation of the release of Samsung’s Galaxy S III.  The lines are nothing like the ones formed by Apple devotees, but they are lines nonetheless.


    Se the latest Samsung video:



    The global launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S 3 is off to an impressive start. It’s getting the attention of the mainstream media, the blogosphere, and social media. Samsung leads the global smartphone market for numbers, now we’ll see if they can create frenzy for everything Samsung.

    During its unveiling at the Mobile World Congress in February the reception for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was not what Samsung expected.


    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 redesigned for a S-Pen slot


    A similar the C-Pen has a great stylus design that imitates the press of a finger, but with a finer tip that makes taking notes and revising documents more accurate.   View the latest in Stylus pen technology from top brands such as Incipio, Targus, Kensigton, Griffin, HTC and of course Samsung.


    One of the big flaws of the tablet was lack of a place to place to store the S-Pen. Samsung took it back for a redesign and the tablet now includes a slot to hold the advanced S-Pen stylus. While the stylus had to be slimmed down to fit inside the tablet, there will be a holder kit available for those who want the larger S-Pen feel.

    Although Windows 8 is expected to launch in October, Microsoft still has big plans for its Windows 7 operating system sales. According to a Bloomberg report, Microsoft expects 350 million devices running its Windows 7 software to be shipped globally this year as it prepares the next version of the operating system.


    350 million more Windows 7 devices to ship

    Windows 7 has surpassed XP as the most widely used operating system in the world according to new data from StatCounter. The operating system now has a 40.21% usage share of the global desktop OS market, compared to Windows XP, which has a 38.64% market share. Windows XP is trailed by Mac OS X and Linux. Microsoft first released Windows 7 in October of 2009, and its versatility and ability to run on everything from low-powered netbooks that were typically powered by Windows XP, to high-powered desktops and business machines has no doubt contributed to its success.

    At a forum in Seoul, South Korea Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said “It makes Windows the most popular single system.” Although Ballmer didn’t provide any stats to back that up, the statement rings true. Windows 7 was released in October 2009 and within two years it surpassed Windows XP to become the world’s most popular OS.

    Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE smartphones have been sprung from U.S. Customs. Sprint announced it will immediately begin shipping HTC EVO 4G LTE pre-orders to customers who placed their orders through the Sprint website.  Sprint announced in a forum post this week that the phones should be in these customers’ hands on or around May 24th.


    US Customs Release HTC EVO 4G LTE Sprint Now Taking Preorders

    According to Sprint, the EVO 4G LTE was originally slated to be released on May 18, but was delayed in U.S. customs due to a “review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order.”


    The exclusion order resulted from a court ruling handed down last year. HTC was accused of violating 10 patents held by Apple. The judge ruled in favor of Apple in the case, and required HTC to make changes to the software in its EVO 4G LTE and HTC One X devices that were headed to the U.S. (HTC’s violation specifically involved the process of tapping a phone number in an email to launch the phone’s dialer to call a number.)

    US Customs Release HTC EVO 4G LTE Sprint Now Taking Preorders


    The exclusion order went into effect on April 19. U.S. Customs finally pulled both the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE for inspection last week. HTC had acknowledged the review, and issued a statement reading in part, “We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with customs to secure approval.” Approval apparently has been granted, at least for the EVO 4G LTE device. No word on the status of the HTC One X, but we’ll keep you posted.


    Customers will be sent a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number as soon as their devices ship. Check the status of pre-orders on Sprint’s website.


    HTC and Sprint aren’t saying when EVO 4G LTE devices will be available in retail stores. Those who snapped up pre-order deals from Amazon or Best Buy will most likely have to wait a few extra days before their handsets are delivered, too.

    What a difference a year makes: smartphone users dominate the market


    According to a report released by Nielsen, this is the first time that more than half of all mobile customers in the U.S. own a smartphone. That's up a whopping 38% from a year ago.


    With Android and iOS accounting for more than 80% of the U.S. market, smartphones are changing the way people use their handsets. Smartphone users are spending 39 minutes per day using their apps, up 10% from a year ago. The number of apps downloaded to Apple iPhone and Google Android devices grew 28% over the past year to an average of 41 apps per phone.

    A Google study also released Wednesday found that 26% of U.S. smartphone owners would rather give up their computer than their smartphone -- a sign that smartphones are truly becoming mini-PCs.


    Despite the increase of apps, smartphone owners spend roughly the same amount of time using them each day:  37 minutes in 2011, compared to 39 minute in 2012.


    Facebook, YouTube, Android market (now Google Play Store), Google Search and Gmail remain the top five most-used apps, according to Nielsen. That isn't particularly surprising, since all of those apps except for Facebook are pre-loaded onto most Android devices.

    For all the sales records being set by some smartphone manufacturers, total worldwide sales dropped by 2% since the same time period last year.  Only 419.1 million units sold in the Q1 2012 versus 427.8 million in Q1 2011. This is the first time since the second quarter of 2009 that the market has shown a decline.

    According to Gartner Inc., lack of new product launches and users delaying their upgrades in Asia/Pacific countries are the top reasons for the drop. The first quarter is usually the strongest quarter for Asia due to its Chinese New Year. There should be some recovery coming as users in Asia look for better smartphone deals to arrive later in the year.

    Android accounted for more than half of all smartphone sales, with a 56.1% market share in the first quarter of 2012. Apple’s iOS has second place with an increase from 16.9% in 2011 to 22.9%.


    Worldwide mobile phone sales in decline


    Samsung became the world’s top mobile handset vendor during the quarter. It took the top spot from Nokia which had been No. 1 since 1998. Samsung’s mobile phone sales reached 86.6 million units, a 25.9% increase from last year. Samsung took back the world’s No. 1 smartphone position from Apple, selling 38 million smartphones worldwide. Samsung’s Android-based smartphone sales in the first quarter of 2012 represented more than 40 percent of Android-based smartphone sales worldwide; no other vendors achieved more than a 10 percent share of the market.

    After years of eating away at Microsoft’s Internet Explorer market share, Google Chrome took what looks to be a sustainable lead as the most popular Web browser in the world. According to the latest figures from StatCounter, Chrome has a 32.76% of the market versus 31.94% for Internet Explorer and surpasses Internet Explorer in the global numbers for the first time.

    Google Chrome unseats Internet Explorer from the most popular browser spotJust a year ago, Internet Explorer was leading the Web browser market share with 43%, followed by Mozilla Firefox with 29%. Chrome came in a distant third with 19%. Twelve months later, IE is down 12% while Chrome gained 13% (due to both IE and Firefox losses). Firefox also lost about 4% of its users and now has just over 25% market share.


    "Whether Chrome can take the lead in the browser wars in the long term remains to be seen, however the trend towards Chrome usage at weekends is undeniable. At weekends, when people are free to choose what browser to use, many of them are selecting Chrome in preference to IE," added Aodhan Cullen, commenting on the weekend surges in Chrome usage.
