    Default iOS Powers Just 19% of Smart Mobile Devices Shipped in Q1 2013


    Independent analyst firm Canalys is out with a new report highlighting total smart mobile device shipments for Q1 of 2013.

    For the quarter, global shipments of notebooks, tablets and smartphones reached 308.7 million units, which represents year-on-year growth of 37.4%.

    When it comes to OS vendors, Android remains the global OS leader, powering 59.5% of all smart mobile devices shipped.

    Apple’s iOS only claimed a 19.3% share, while Microsoft’s 18.1% share reflects its relative strength in the PC market but continued challenger status in the smartphone space, the report reads.

    “Despite its slowing growth, Apple still shipped over 37 million iPhones,” says Pete Cunningham, Canalys Principal Analyst. “But HTC and Samsung have raised the bar with their latest handsets and Apple needs to respond with its next iPhone. The iPhone user interface is now six years old and badly in need of a refresh. Hardware-wise, the biggest dilemma that Apple faces is what it does with the size of the display on the next iPhone. It cannot afford to ignore the trend for larger displays in premium smart phones. We expect an increase on the iPhone 5’s 4″ display but are not anticipating a ‘Phablet’-style iPhone.”

    That's exactly what i say when it comes to these #s, Apple has always in a way competed with 1 device while Android releases 100's and 100's of phones per year, 1 company vs i don't know how many company's make android phones now, but i know its a lot.

    So in a way not bad for Apple 1 device vs 100's, 1 Company vs 100's, Not bad at all.

    There are currently 310 separate and distinct android phones on the market. Ranging from Acer, HTC, Motorola, LG, Samsung, Sony, Sony Ericsson, Dell, and many more.

    310 Different version of the same crap OS and these guys still find a way to talk about the validity of which phone or operating system is better. 310 vs 1 and the one is still destroying all the other models on a per phone basis. Why does Engadget, CNET, CNN, Modmyi, and all the others think this is relevant? Is there nothing else to talk about or do they think people are stupid enough to believe the iPhone has lost it's luster? (actually some people are that stupid). The Galaxy 2, 3, and 4 were all iPhone killers and yet the iPhone 4 is outselling these phones. The new HTC One was supposed to end the debate...Have they even sold 5 million units yet? WTF people? Can we put this pointless and baseless argument to rest once and for all?

    Here is a novel idea, give us stats for Androids best seller VS iPhone or iOS. Get the best Android sellers and have the amount of hardware be equal. Compare at that time..that would be interesting. Bet Apple would beat them.

    Yeah if all of those companies each had their own OS. Android OEMs have to compete with each other for the best Android phone. Apple doesn't have to compete with anyone for the best iOS phone.

    If I wanted an Android phone with a great low-light camera and amazing speakers, I would get the One. If you wanted an Android phone with a microSD slot and a bigger screen, you would get the Galaxy S4. That's one sale for each company.

    If I wanted an iOS phone with a great low-light camera and amazing speakers, oh well, the iPhone is my only option. If you wanted an iOS phone with a microSD slot and a bigger screen, oh well, the iPhone is your only option. That's two sales for one company.

    With Samsung selling close to half of all Android phones despite the competition between other Android manufacturers, that's more impressive to me than Apple commanding less than 20% of the smartphone market.
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
