    It is common knowledge that both Apple and Google are the foremost thought leaders in the technology industry and as a result have secured global dominance of the smartphone OS market space. What is surprising is reviewing the numbers and trends that show an astronomical growth for the two giants over the course of 18 months. As can be seen in chart provided by comScore - the leading provider of online digital world measurement metrics - U.S. mobile subscribers are used to demonstrate the dramatic transition in market shares in the ever growing smartphone market. Discover the benefits of online shopping.... experience the largest assortment of wireless device accessories at the lowest prices on the Internet.


    Google Apple Market Share


    In less than a year and a half (between August 2010 and November 2011), the combined U.S. market share for Google and Apple - based on the number of mobile subscribers of iPhones and Android phones - jumped from 43.8 percent to 75.6 percent! When one considers the exponential growth of the mobile market and the rapid consumer adoption of wireless devices such as unlocked cell phones and tablets as well as for the associated branded protective accessories... it becomes apparent how staggering the revenue potential of these combined markets really is.


    Another drastic market shift is the fall of beleaguered Canadian high-tech giant, Research In Motion. RIM has been plagued with technology based challenges, security issues, lackluster apps, production setbacks, numerous litigations and dismal product design, which all contributed to its fall from grace. Losing subscribership in the 18 month period, RIM’s BlackBerry market share dropped from 37.6 percent to 19.7 percent. Microsoft didn’t fare any better when it’s popularity poll was cut almost in half. Lastly, market laggard, Palm who? Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool! Discover select accessories, such as stylus & pens, SD Micro memory cards, batteries, speakers and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.

    So how and why did Android and Apple win over so many consumers? Analysts and industry experts seem to agree that unlocked phones for carrier neutrality, provided subscribers with the freedom to break away from being tied in with long term service provider contracts and negotiate lower priced service plans that best met their lifestyle needs . Secondly, the branding of not only the device, but the wide array of innovative top brand accessories drew customers in. Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!

  • If you are currently in the market for a new cell phone you should look into Verizon Wireless’ Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus.  The mobile phone company has just announced a price reduction for two of their more popular phones.  The Pre Plus will drop to a price of $49.99 while the Pixi Plus will be even lower at $29.99.  If you are in the market for more than once cell phone these two devices also qualify for Verizon’s popular buy one get one free offer as well.  Of course both handsets will require a two year agreement to get these prices but at these prices that is a no brainer.  Also, to further entice consumers Verizon has dropped the price of the webOS mobile hotspot service to $0 (down from $40) for both new and current customers.  The mobile hotspot offer is not going to be advertised on the web right away however customers will be told of the free hotspot promotion when they purchase the other mobile devices.

    This appears to be a fantastic deal that Verizon Wireless is offering.  The Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus are two of their more popular phones.  If you are on a budget and looking to get a great smartphone you certainly can not go wrong with either of these devices.  Throw in the fact that you can also get a free handset when you purchase one can lower the price dramatically if you were to split the costs with a friend or family member.  The addition of the mobile hotspot is just icing on the cake and truly makes this a deal that you can not pass up.

  • After a much anticipated wait Palm finally announced that their top two mobile phones will be coming to the AT&T network.  The Pre Plus and Pixi Plus will be making their way to AT&T’s network in the “coming months.”  These are two of the best phones that Palm has to offer and is surely to excite all AT&T customers.


     The Pre Plus will be similarly equipped to its Verizon counterpart and will come with 16GB of storage, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.  The Pixi will be very similar as well as it is expected to have 8GB of storage, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.  Both devices are expected to support AT&T’s new address book service as a synergy sync option and will have free auto-conntect access to the carrier’s WiFi +20,000 hotspots.  These devices are also set to come in a variety of colors including a blue back plate in addition to the standard black and other swapable colors.


    Palm Cell Phones


     Both of these devices appear to be pretty affordable for most consumers.  The Pre Plus is expected to be available for $149.99 and the Pixi Plus at a deep discount of $49.99 (with a $100 mail in rebate and two year contract.)  The official announcement of these two Palm phones being available on the AT&T network is expected to take place this week at the US’s largest wireless convention, CTIA.


    Hopefully at the CTIA convention we will get a more concrete time frame for these mobile devices to be rolled out.  Right now they are set to be released in the “coming months.”  Here is to hoping that those “coming months” are much shorter than we think they will be.  It will also be interesting to see what kind of affect moving to the AT&T network will have on Palm.  I expect this will be a great business decision and dramatically increase their sales.

  • Android’s U.S. Market Share Soars
    Posted on March 25, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Looking at comScore’s January quarter cell phone manufacturer and platform market share statistics in the United States, we see some interesting trends.  Despite a sharp decrease in global sales, Motorola mobile devices surprisingly still maintains a 22.9% market share of American cell phone subscribers.  They saw a 1.2% decrease since October 2009, which is strange considering the release of the success of the Droid in recent months.  Considering Motorola’s lack of smart phone offerings, it tells you that the smart phone does not quite dominate the cell phone market as much as one might expect.  Samsung recently claimed to hold the number one spot in U.S. market share, but as with any claim, you need to take with a grain of salt and dig a little deeper.  When referring to total sales, and not current subscribers, this claim could be feasible, as there are still a huge number of legacy RAZR phones floating around and inflating these numbers.


    Motorola Cell Phones


    Looking at the other popular smart phone manufacturers and platforms, Blackberry, iPhone, and Android all saw gains this quarter, while Palm and Windows Mobile each saw large downturns.  Regarding the decreases, it seems as though most can be attributed to a large number of Palm OS and WinMO phone subscribers coming off their contracts.  At this point, at the tail end of two year contracts, those operating systems are antiquated at best.  It’s well known that WinMo is well past its expiration date, with most people who used Windows Mobile heading to the Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry.


    Blackberry and iPhone still dominate the smartphone landscape, but it seems like Droid is determined to steal some market share, as they’ve already gained 4.3% since it was released in November 2009.  It will be interesting to see if the Droid can continue to win over loyal iPhone and Blackberry users in the next quarter.

  • New Palm Phone Soon To Be Released
    Posted on April 30, 2009 by Pure Mobile

    So it looks like this year is going to be a year that Palm makes a jump back into the cell phone market.  In the past year or so Palm hasnt' really been seen on the market.  Many people had lost confidence as they had issues with the 680 and 750 models.  Well now this year with the Palm Pre releasing they have announced the Palm Eos


    This is looking to be the first North American phone that will run on the Palm WebOS.  As for the phone it seems pretty standard.


    The specs we've seen come from BoyGeniusReport.com


    • Quad-band GSM, 850/1900MHz HSDPA
    • 111 x 55 x 10.6mm (looks like the E71’s reign as the thinnest QWERTY smartphone is coming to an end)
    • 2.63-inch 320 x 400 capacitive display
    • 4GB storage
    • Price: $349 (pre-rebate)
    • Camera: 2 megapixel fixed focus digital camera and flash / video capture
    • Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP and EDR, USB 2.0 via micro USB
    • Removable 1150 mAh battery (4 hours 3G talk time)
    • Messaging: SMS, MMS (picture and video only), integrated IM client
    • Contact sync with AT&T Address Book
    • MediaNet
    • Cellular Video
    • Email: POP3, IMAP4, and EAS support
    • A-GPS
    • Audio: WAV, MP3, AAC, AAC+ ringtones
    • Video Playback: MPEG4, H.264, H.263

    This new phone looks like it will help get Palm back in the game, or at least get a foot in the door.  One nice feature is that it will have North American 3G, which has definitely something that's been lacking in some recent phones that have been released.


    Only time will tell how well the phone will do but it does give people a choice.
