by: Joe HindySeptember 25, 2012
PhoneGap is a build service that is hosted by Adobe. It allows developers to create cross-platform mobile applications. The implication being that developers who create an application for, say, iOS will be able to easily port their application to Android or even Windows. This should help create a more diverse mobile app market for everyone.

Among the new CEO Marissa Mayer's strategic shifts when she came onboard as chief executive is to revamp the company as a product company.

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 [...]

AT&T reportedly ordered staff to push anything but iPhone

by: Chris SmithAugust 1, 2012

A few days ago, we showed you AT&T’s earnings report for the second quarter of the year. In its press release announcing the official numbers for the period, the second largest carrier in the U.S. stressed the sales and subscriber growth in the smartphone sector, announcing that it has sold 5.1 million smartphones in Q2, with 3.7 million of them being iPhones. At the time we noted that the carrier did not mention any other smartphone except for the iPhone in its official documents.

That’s not surprising considering that AT&T had an exclusive arrangement with Apple to sell the iPhone in the region that lasted until early 2011 when [...]

Nokia CEO and board need to go, Jean Louis Gassée says

by: Chris SmithJuly 4, 2012

Nokia is a fallen giant that’s trying to get back atop the mobile business, a position it held for years before the smartphone revolution caught it unprepared. Apple initiated the revolution, by introducing a touchscreen-only device that impressed the crowds and started selling like hot cakes. And then Android came out of hiding, and OEMs launched a variety of Android-based devices, also touchscreen based and capable to run various apps like the iPhone, that fitted any budget.

Nokia was not able to properly fight either rival OS. The company tried to make a comeback a bunch of times and ultimately decided to stick with Microsoft and [...]

New Samsung CEO says company must focus on “software, user experience, design”

by: Chris SmithJune 18, 2012

Samsung is one of the most important companies in the smartphone and mobile business, but the South Korean giant is apparently not happy with its current status.

Samsung managed to become the largest smartphone vendor in the world in the first quarter of the year, and it controlled 90% of smartphone profits together with Apple in the same period. But the company wants to further improve certain aspects of its global business, many of them directly related to its mobile business.

A new Wall Street Journal report sheds light on a speech given today by Kwon Oh-hyun, Samsung’s new CEO, to Samsung staff, in which he highlighted potential [...]

Android will reach its peak this year, research claims

by: Chris SmithJune 7, 2012

The guys over at the International Data Corporation (IDC) issued a new press release yesterday to announce that Android is expected to “reach its peak this year as mobile phone shipments slow.” Sure, analysts have access to lots of data which they can track and aggregate to conduct such studies, but the truth is that they have no way of actually knowing what will happen four years from now.

According to IDC, Android will reach 61% market share in 2012, and drop to 52.9% in 2016. But will that really be a drop? When you look solely at percentages that’s what IDC’s study seems to indicate, but the total number of [...]
