AdMob have released their latest statistics for April. AdMob are a worldwide company that has a good read on the pulse of the smartphone OS market. It is important to note that that these are not market estimates of actual sales. Instead, they are a ‘snapshot of the month of April 2010 in AdMob’s network’. The general consensus is that this network is very large… large enough to give meaningful statistics.
For me, the most interesting statistic is that Android is already outselling the iPhone in key emerging markets such as China. Sure, if you add up all the iPhone OS type devices, including the iPad, the [...]
Every few months we bring you an update courtesy of Admob mobile advertisement statistics. AdMob is one of the world’s largest mobile advertising networks, offering solutions for discovery, branding and monetization on the mobile web. This puts them in a great position when it comes to providing a cross-section of which devices are requesting the most adverts.
Android has grown month on month now accounting for 39% of smartphone requests compared to 47% for iPhone OS in the United States. Looking worldwide, Android accounts for 21% compared to the iPhone’s 50%. One of the most interesting statistics to come out of [...]
It is that time of year again and AdMob have compiled a list of metrics for mobile phone and smart phone usage. For those that have not yet heard of the company, AdMob stores and analyzes data from each advert request to serve the most relevant ad possible. AdMob Mobile Metrics offers a snapshot of this data to provide insight into trends in the mobile ecosystem. Remember AdMob data is based on the usage of mobile sites and apps, which is very different than if you were to look at estimates of device sales from Gartner, IDC, or your favorite Wall Street analyst.
The most important thing to take away from their report is that Android usage continues to grow at almost an [...]
Mobile advertising firm AdMob has released some statistics about mobile web use, and the numbers coming out of the Android segment are quite interesting.
As of November 18th, only days after its November 6th initial availability, the Motorola DROID for Verizon Wireless made up a whopping 24 percent of all Android smartphone traffic going through AdMob’s servers. For comparison, the Motorola CLIQ for T-Mobile, which was available in stores on November 2nd, made up only 6 percent of the Android traffic and the T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream, which has been out for over a year, came in at 36 percent.
This certainly seems to suggest that the DROID is doing well, at least when [...]
In the latest figures released by AdMob only one thing jumps out. The Droid takes 24% and the CLIQ takes 6% of the Android pie. Motorola now account for 30% of all Android device usage as estimated from a cross section of more than 15,000 mobile Web sites and iPhone and Android applications. Indeed, worldwide Android accounts for 11% of Smartphone web-traffic requests compared to iPhone’s 50% and Symbian’s 25%. RIM are now sitting in 4th place with only 7% of all requests made from a smartphone device. It is no surprise that HTC still account for 65% of Android online usage. For a complete breakdown of the statistics, check out AdMob’s page [...]
Every month mobile advertisement metrics company ‘AdMob’ release world-wide statistics on smartphone requests by OS. The short summary is that Android is still growing, and the Google operating system has now claimed 7% of the world smartphone market share. This puts it on a level par with RIM OS, together accounting for 14%. Overall, Android grew 40% and much of this growth can be attributed to the UK market where Android requests are growing rapidly.
According to an AdMob Mobile Metrics Report, dated February 2009, Android already accounts for 5.2% of the US smartphone web surfing traffic. This isn’t quite up to Apple’s 50%, but Steve Job’s boys do have a watertight head-start .
The iPhone has taken share from Blackberry and Windows Mobile but unfortunately it is not clear from the report where the G1’s slice is coming from. My best guestimate is, as the smart phone market grows, the G1 is picking up a lot of new customers and, in Europe and the UK, a lot of former Nokia N95 users. Looking worldwide, Android’s G1 isn’t really doing so great, but it is very early days. Nokia’s Symbian OS reigns supreme, but that was to be [...]
