Gem86, 29 Jul 2011Don't believe the hype. The SGS 2 is still a high-end, very expensive device. I'm more surp... moreIn other words: If HTC were the sole contributor to Android, then it won against Apple. It's just a matter of monopolisation or fair game, the latter unlikely.
WP7 might get a significant boost in Q4 since plenty of manufacturers are getting it ready on their devices. If Nokia did tweaked the OS (screw Elop's words), it might stand out much more compared to the similar crowd.
nokia 4 life, 29 Jul 2011nokia is minded :-) because that the choosed windows phone os not android :-) . just wait and ... moreWindows need everyone to compete with iOS, Android and BB and Android have the lead now.

I'm more surprised about HTC's market share! Stunning. My conclusion thus far: manufacturers that provide devices focused on the end user experience will be kings of the mobile world. That's also the reason Samsung has not gained a very large share yet with the SGS2 - that is just another Droid. HTC's phones provide and advertise with HTC Sense, their support is more than awesome and they listen to the community, and they're in the money.
Iphones do the same: the end user experience is trouble-free, and look what happened :)
At the moment best smart phones from EACH OS based on a specifications, functionality, photo and video camera quality, screen quality, CPU (processor) and handset build quality factors. And all devices bellow FOR GLOBAL and EUROPEAN MARKET ONLY:
01. Android OS - Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II
02. Apple iOS - Apple iPhone 4
03. Microsoft Windows Phone OS - HTC 7 Mozart
04. Nokia Symbian OS - Nokia N8
05. RIM BlackBerry OS - BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900
06. HP webOS - HP Pre 3
07. Samsung Bada OS - Samsung S8530 Wave II
08. Maemo OS - Nokia N900
09. MeeGo OS - Nokia N950 (not realised) or Nokia N9 (not realised)

Sun Down, 29 Jul 2011I'm surprised too, considering the hype the SGSII had made throughout the world.Samsung Galaxy S II had been in the US for only a few days, less than a month, and besides, HTC and BlackBerry are traditional rulers of smartphone market in the US. Considering the growth of Samusng worldwide, this image should change soon, but it's too early yet as Samsung has only begun to seriously grow over US market.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2011I honestly don't understand why one would still look at Symbian for a high end phone. For low-... moreI never said Symbian will be part of the high-end section of smartphones. What I'm saying is that the standard would increase in the future, where specs of low-end to mid-end phones would be known as dual-cores, 2 GHz clock speeds and the likes. Since it's labelled as such, Symbian would take these ''low-end/mid-end'' devices comfortably.
i can confirm, 29 Jul 2011i can confirm no one cares about how many symbian users there are in the world.Its dead and fi... moreYou can confirm nothing, because its not like noone cares how many users use Symbian worldwide, but I tell you, noone cares what YOU think.
Symbian might run out, but now, it has come around a lot. US market aint worldmarket and worldmarket is much more important.
What I dont get is, how so many people aint able to realize that not everybody on earth has over $600 to get a smartphone. Socially Sybian is the best OS following Android and iOS is only for ricdh snops and people who want to be like them.
Sun Down, 29 Jul 2011I'm not sure really. Let's just hope the next CPU/GPU/RAM combo for the next generation Symbia... moreI honestly don't understand why one would still look at Symbian for a high end phone. For low-midrange devices the OS is still viable because it doesn't offer much less than other comparable devices of a different OS. But for high-end, Symbian has never and will never aspire to becoming useful; the OS isn't built or optimized for it. Even though an update could bring new functionality, it will always be one or more steps behind Android and WP7 that now have the full attention of the manufacturers. Symbian has been outsourced and will be deceased by 2016, if you honestly expect stunning new features and optimization, you'd be gravely mistaken.
Sun Down, 29 Jul 2011I'm surprised too, considering the hype the SGSII had made throughout the world.Gs2 are not on the us market right now. Apple is doing everything on there power to band every galaxy serie from the us market. but worldwide gs2 are selling like hotcake. The built quality of Htc is by far better than the cheap plastic use on every samsumg.
200 million of cheap symbian phone user worldwide will be replace by 200 million of cheap android phone by 2015.
I'm very surprised that samsung owns only 8% market share, i thought it would be a lot bigger, i knew it's not as big as apple, but only 8%
Good job htc you have 20% of the market share. 14% for android + 6% on win phone. I understand now why apple suying Htc. htc is has the same market share than Rim (bb). Htc are making good quality phone. Am a proud nexus 1 user.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2011with or without symbian, nokia was never popular in the US market. their abandoning of symbian... morein my opinion ! nokia never leave symbian os because of some reason , first not all the people accept windows phone 7 and not all people can buy high end windows phone devices ,
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2011with or without symbian, nokia was never popular in the US market. their abandoning of symbian... moreYeah, this is one obstacle Nokia was unable to break. Such a shame since US media is quite powerful.
nokia 4 life, 29 Jul 2011but how can the use in mid range device dual core ? the will use dual core only in windows pho... moreFabrication process are always progressing, from 45 nm to 28 nm to 22 nm and so on. These progresses, if economical, will allow higher performance on a smaller scale while also maintaining proper power consumption. So it won't be strange to have a dual-core ''dumbphone'' or a quad-core smartphone in the near future. As long as the OS works well with the cores then it'll be a great product, which is why I want Belle to adopt this quickly.
Whatever your analysis is you are right but tell u one thing as symbian is being used by most of the people worldwide android has just come and u could see all the analysis that it has been most popular initially then u can imagine with this. Whole world gonna use smartphone soon and If symbian wont take any steps further developing the UI and os. It would certainly fall down I myself a symbian user recently moved to android and even I use symbian too.
