85% Increase in Smartphone Users, Android Leads with 36% Marketshare

A recent Gartner’s mobile market report says 428 million mobile devices were sold in the first quarter of 2011, representing a 19% increase year-over-year. A lot of that growth is due to smartphone sales, which were at 100.7 million, a 85% year-over-year increase.

Mobile devices running the Google Android operating system continue their worldwide market penetration, accounting for 36.2 million smartphones sold worldwide in Q1 2011.The platform is giving Apple's iPhone a very strong challenge even as market share for smartphones running Symbian, BlackBerry OS and Windows continues to decline.

The big winner in this quarter was Android, which soared past Symbian to capture 36% of the market. Nokia’s Symbian is in second place with 27.4%, followed by Apple’s iOS with 16.8%, RIM’s BlackBerry with 12.9% and Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 with 3.6%.

For comparison, at the end of 2010, Android and Symbian’s roles were nearly reversed, with Symbian holding 37.4% of the market and Android being far behind with 22.7%.Nokia is meanwhile all set to shut out the "Symbian"to build Windows Phone devices, which will hit the market in 2012 and should accelerate the platform's momentum, said Gartner.

Recently, Gartner predicted that worldwide smartphone sales will reach 468 million units in 2011, with Android taking 38.5% of the smartphone market. With Windows Phone 7-based Nokias still being far on the horizon and iOS growing steadily but not as explosively as Android, Gartner’s prediction sounds about right (and perhaps even too conservative as far as Android growth goes).

Android, which Google executives said is being activated on 400,000 devices daily, tripled its market share from Q1 2010, with Samsung, HTC and Motorola shipping the lion's share of these phones. In Q1 2011, there were 16.8 million Apple iPhones sold, more than double the 8.2 million sold in Q1 2010.

On the manufacturer front, Nokia still holds first place with 25.1% mobile devices sold, a large drop from the 30.6% share the company held in Q1 2010. Nokia’s market share will likely keep plummeting at least until the company starts selling Windows Phone 7-based devices, which is supposed to happen in 2012.

Samsung holds second place with 16.1% of the market, followed by LG, Apple, RIM and other companies whose market share is lower than 3%.

Motorola Droid Bionic Vs HTC Thunderbolt: Infographic Comparison

Motorola Droid Bionic Vs HTC Thunderbolt:Part 1

Motorola Droid Bionic Vs HTC ThunderBolt:Part 2

 The HTC ThunderBolt (ADR6400 codename "Scorpion" or "Mecha") is the first 4G LTE smartphone on the Verizon Wireless network. It is a CDMA variant of the HTC Desire HD. It was first announced at CES on January 6, 2011. As of spring 2011, this phone is considered the flagship phone for Verizon, going head to head with the HTC EVO.In addition to 4G service, the ThunderBolt is the first Verizon phone to support simultaneous voice/data over 3G without the help of Wi-Fi

This Infographic comes to you from Popherald, and  compares  the HTC Thunderbolt and its upcoming rival from Motorola, the Motorola Droid Bionic. Apparently, the Motorola Droid Bionic is like the Verizon version of AT&T’s Motorola Atrix 4G, which is capable of transforming into a laptop with the help of an exclusive Motorola LapDock accessory.
Specs-wise, the Motorola Droid Bionic is the clear winner with its dual-core 1GHz processor against Thunderbolt’s single-core 1GHz, HDMI support, and larger internal storage and bigger memory. But if want to become one of the first adopters of 4G/LTE of Verizon Wireless, then the HTC Thunderbolt is perfect for you.

The Motorola Atrix Infographic


The Atrix sports a 4.0” qHD (960 x 540) LCD display.  This is an extremely high resolution to have on a mobile device, and should provide the user with unprecedented quality and clarity for everything they choose to look at.

The Motorola Atrix is technologically one of the most  sophisticated phone in the world .It’s packing incredible hardware, a beautifully appointed screen, some cool new goodies for expansion and use down the road, and a really solid, large battery.  It is also said to be  having received near military grade construction via Corning’s Gorilla Glass which is almost impossible to break.

The Android 2.2 device is powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core processor AP20H (one of the first mobile dual-cores available) and has an impressive 1 GB of DDR2 RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a powerful 1930 mAh, and a delightful 540 × 960, 4-inch multi-touch LCD, with Gorilla Glass (zero and resistant to breakage), a VGA front facing camera, a 5MP camera that can record video back to 720p, and a proximity sensor for auto-of

The phone itself is a serious technological leap in the right direction. As one of several new Android phones with dual-core processors, it is able to go round for round, pound for pound, with the likes of the other Dual Core Champions, like the Motorola DROID Bionic, The LG Optimus 2X, the LG Optimus 3D, and the Samsung SII (or Samsung S2).
