ICS on 16% of all Android devices, Jelly Bean at 0.8%

by: LucianAugust 2, 2012

Last month, Google announced that ICS devices represented close to 11% of the total Android devices, and now a new report is saying that ICS saw a 50% increase on Android devices, jumping to 16% after a month. Gingerbread still owns the lion share of the market, sitting at 60%, and Froyo is now less than ICS, at 15.5%. Jelly Bean is now at 0.8%, thanks to the popular Nexus 7 and the upgrading of the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S devices.

The 50% jump for ICS sounds pretty impressive, but I wouldn’t get too excited about it just yet. It could mean that we’re only going to see a 5% jump in ICS devices every month, which means that it’s possible we [...]

Nokia kills Meltemi, its last chance to compete with Android for the mass-market

by: LucianJuly 26, 2012

Around the same time when Nokia announced their partnership with Microsoft to use WP7 as a replacement for their Symbian S60 OS for high-end devices, we got word of a Linux-based operating system called Meltemi, that was supposed to replace Symbian S40.

Symbian S40 is on all of Nokia’s “feature phones” for the mass-market, with a price range between $50 and $200 (unlocked). The operating system is running on 2 billion smartphones today, and it still holds on to about 20% market share in Q1 2012, according to research firm IDC. But that market share is falling rapidly, even in countries where Nokia used to be very strong, with 60%-70% of the market. [...]

MediaTek aims to put dual-core chips in sub-$200 Android 4.0 contract-free smartphones

by: LucianJune 27, 2012

MediaTek is the leader in the low-end of the chip market, bringing 550 million chipsets to the market last year alone (mostly in non-Android feature phones).

MediaTek now aims to take over the low-end Android market, with powerful, yet inexpensive dual-core 1Ghz Cortex A9 chips (MT6577), for smartphones that cost under $200 (contract-free) and run Android 4.0 or later.

The GPU in MediaTek’s new SoC will also be a pretty powerful one. They say it’s a PowerVR Series 5 GPU, so it’s probably the SGX540 (first shown in the Galaxy S). This graphics chip should be able to power 720p displays and play 1080p video with no problems. The MediaTek SoC will [...]
