Samsung dominates Europe with 45% market share, Android continues its jump

by: Bams SadewoAugust 8, 2012

Despite the courtroom drama that is taking place stateside, it’s business as usual for Samsung elsewhere. The Korean giant is strengthening its grip in several European countries, while at the same time cementing Android’s placing on the old continent. According to the latest sales data (from the last 12 weeks) from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, Samsung is leading the Android pack with 45% share across Europe.

Samsung’s domination was buoyed by the launch of the Galaxy S3. The top-selling smartphone has helped improve Android’s market share in five major European markets (Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain) to 65.7% in July 2012, an astonishing jump from the [...]

HTC forecasts another bad quarter, as China remains its last growing market

by: Bogdan PetrovanAugust 3, 2012

To get an idea of how the smartphone business is these days, consider that Samsung is one of the few manufacturers that had positive figures to show to shareholders in the second quarter of 2012. Sony yesterday announced losses, in spite of growing revenues in the mobile business, while LG slipped backed in the red, after the good performance from the first quarter of 2012. Even Apple somehow disappointed investors by missing estimates in Q2 and shipping fewer iPhone than expected.

HTC announced a puny $250 million in profit in the second quarter, a massive 57% lower than in the previous three months. Taiwanese execs blamed the lackluster performance of the company on [...]

Canalys: Android gets 68% of global smartphone shipments, 81% in China, in Q2 2012

by: LucianAugust 2, 2012

While things may not be looking so good in the US market for Android, dropping 5% in market share compared to the last quarter, Canalys is reporting that Android has a very healthy global growth rate, reaching 68% in Q2 2012. This is compared to a year ago when Android only had 47% of the global market. Apple dropped from 18.9% a year ago to 16.4% globally in Q2 of this year.

What’s even more impressive is that Android grew in China from 70% in Q1 to 81% in Q2, which once again shows that pretty much everywhere outside North America people are more interested in buying affordable unlocked devices, than in paying expensive monthly fees for subsidized [...]

Report: Android tablets finally rising, iPad’s reign over?

by: AdrianAugust 2, 2012

Whether we like it or not (and we don’t), Apple’s iPad has dominated the global tablet market with ease, making Android eat its dust since… well, ever. The much awaited and anticipated iPad killer hasn’t come, and all the latest reports and surveys, be it official or unofficial, have shown Apple selling more of their tablets than all Android manufacturers together.

Meanwhile, Samsung has admitted “we’re not doing very well in the tablet market” some six months ago, making even the most optimistic of us lose hope for Android to ever challenge Apple’s iPads for their crown.

And when [...]

HTC gives up on another market, pulls out of South Korea

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 30, 2012

HTC has seen its fortunes fade over the past year, after a series of strategic and tactical blunders cost it market share and revenues. The Taiwanese fell behind Samsung in the Android pack, and very importantly, lost much of the crucial US smartphone market, although HTC did register some growth in the fast-developing Asia-Pacific markets. On the bright side, the One series somehow improved HTC’s performance in the past two quarters, in spite of the Customs ban in the US and weak sales in Europe.

To stem loses, the phone-maker has been laying off R&D staff and closing offices in underperforming markets. One such market from where HTC pulled off was Brazil, the [...]
