Interestingly the UK is one of the last few markets where Blackberry holds any significant market share (Canada is another). Android is the big winner in the UK increasing its share by 10% to bump it up to second place behind market leader Apple.

 In the USA Apple has strengthened its position increasing market share slightly in the past year (8% increase), while Android has remained level. Blackberry continued its decline in the US and now holds less than 2% market share.
e
 Countries such as Germany, Spain and France have all increased their Android market share, however some of the biggest increases have happened in countries such as Brazil and China where Android’s market share has increased by 26% and 50% respectively. Russia has seen a sharp drop in Nokia’s market share with the Finnish handset maker losing 19 points over the past 12 months and Android picking up the majority of that loss (up 18 points).

Worldwide, Android is leading the charge making impressive gains in the last year (up 14%). Apple sits in second place with 26% of the market as Nokia slips down into third with 22%. Overall we are seeing Android’s market share increase in a large proportion of countries around the world, especially in developing markets.

 Given the trends we’ve seen over the past 2-3 years I believe we can expect Android to take over 50% of the global market within a few years Read more:

How Itunes U might Replace Academic Books in Classrom



Apple 's entry into the Higher Education Space was an Interesting one , and might  pave the way for Digital eLearning  and enure immense reach.In the last academic year, students spent more than $5 billion on textbooks. The iPad is a substitute for textbooks. And as more and more of those pricey textbooks are available on the iPad – for much less money than the paper version – students will see a huge reduction in the amount of money they have to spend on those textbooks.
While the iTunes U app provides access to the content that’s available in the iTunes U section of the iTunes Store, it also offers a means for teacher and student interaction. The opening interface looks a lot like Apple’s iBooks app, with a bookshelf that hosts icons representing your courses. Tap on a course, and you’ll see a list of topics on the left, such as Overview, Instructor, and OutlineTeachers can post a syllabus, notes, and assignments to the class, and students receive notifications when new posts are available.
. More than 600 universities, plus other cultural institutions like the New York Public Library, MoMA, and PBS stations are on iTunes U. Teachers can distribute course materials through iTunes U as well, using ePub and PDF file formats.


iTunes U Hits a Milestone As International Use Grows






iTunes U Hits a Milestone As International Use Grows: The popularity of Apple's online educational catalog, iTunes U, has tripled over the past two-and-a-half years according to Apple .

Apple announced Thursday that more than 1 billion items have been downloaded from the catalog, up from 300,000 in August 2010. The service was launched in mid-2007 and got a dedicated app at the beginning of last year.


Tunes U allows verified teachers to upload and distribute educational content — in the form of videos, audio and PDF files — privately to their own students, or the Internet at large, for free. They can create courses on their desktops or on their iPads. As with podcasts, users can download materials and subscribe to courses to be notified of future updates.
According to Apple, approximately 1,200 universities — including elite institutions like Yale, MIT and Oxford — and 1,200 K-12 schools host more than 2,500 public courses between them. International growth has been greatest: iTunes U is available in 30 countries, and 60% of iTunes U downloads take place outside the U.S, says Apple.
