Quarterly Device Sales In 2011

This graph shows how many smartphones are sold each quarter dating back to the start of 2010. The division is made between the four main smartphone platforms, showing which ones are most popular and which one is the quickest growing in terms of smartphone sales. Keep in mind that Android is used on many different handsets (HTC, Samsung, Sony, LG, etc.) and Windows likewise (Nokia, HTC). Apple and Blackberry, on the other hand, have their own native devices – the iPhone and Blackberry smartphone. Blackberry smartphones come in different series with varying price classes while Apple has only one product line.

Current Market Share

The app race started in 2008 when Apple introduced the Apple App Store to its users. When Android entered the playground the number of apps downloaded proliferated and the game was on. Here you can see how many apps have been downloaded since the fight started. The number has been escalating, as the smartphone has increasingly become a commodity in our pockets. Windows Marketplace is also a big player on the market but download statistics are unfortunately not available yet. Compare the graph to Device Sales to see which platform users are most diligent at downloading apps.

Total App Downloads

Anything from games, social media and video to news, stock market and mind maps, the number of apps available on the app stores is in constant growth. This graph shows you the four leading app stores, how many apps they offer and how quickly the number of apps is growing. How many apps are available is not to be confused how many apps have been published and later been removed as they have become obsolete or redundant.

Total Apps Avaliable

This graph enables us to see the how much of the market each type of smartphone is accountable for. Whilst Android is clearly the largest, apple comes in second with surprisingly a much lower percentage. The last three Blackberry, Windows and 'other' phones make up the remaining percentage. This graph shows just how big the difference between the top two is with android dominating the current market by a large margin and the others struggling to match the same figures.
