    Default Apple Knocks Off Nokia on Global Internet Usage


    It's a small but still significant milestone for Apple. On Monday, StatCounter confirmed that Apple "dislodged" Nokia in January for the first time as the most popular mobile vendor in terms of global internet usage.

    The independent website analytics company, however, also noted that Apple wasn't alone in its historic leapfrog past Nokia. Samsung also came along for the ride, climbing ahead of Nokia worldwide to take second place behind Apple.

    For January 2013, Apple led with 25.86%, which is still ahead of Samsung's 22.69%. Nokia finished third with 22.15%.

    "It's good and bad news for Apple," says Aodhan Cullen, CEO of StatCounter. "Apple has been handed the number one spot despite its falling usage share. A decline in Nokia usage from January 2012 to January 2013 means the Finnish company ceded the top spot to Apple."

    Although Apple has pulled ahead of Nokia, Apple actually saw its worldwide internet usage share fall from 28.67% in January 2012 to 25.86% in January of this year. But while Apple only shed 2.81% of its share, Nokia lost more ground,
    down 15.52% over the same 12-month period.

    For the year, Samsung is up 7.85%.

    I'm never ever ever changing my unlimited data plan with AT&T. I'll raise hell if they ask me to, too.

    How exactly is it that Nokia "ceded" the top spot to Apple?? They just waved their arms in the air, and said "we give up" and suddenly a bunch of people with Nokias stopped using their phones? I think Apple TOOK it...Nokia had no say in the matter.

    If CONSUMERS didn't rely on subsidies AT&T wouldn't have to increase monthly rates in order to make a larger profit.

    Your dumb. RELY on?? No....customers take advantage of subsidized phones, they do not RELY on them. When you walk into a ATT or Verizon store, are you immediately approached by someone telling you

    "Come see r best deal of the year! Pay the full price of $799 for your new iPhone 5 and SAVE $10!"

    No...you aren't. Why? Because cell phone companies are the ones RELYING on "subsidies"...not consumers. Consumers are the pets...they take whatever they are given.
