Android Completely Owns The Chinese Smartphone Market

Android Completely Owns The Chinese Smartphone Market | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it
Android's share of the Chinese smartphone market ended the third quarter at 90 percent.

According to Analysys International, Android's share is up from 83 percent a quarter prior and 58 percent a year ago.

With the Chinese market now accounting for a quarter of global smartphone shipments, Android's dominance there is driving its widening lead in global smartphone platform market share.

In China, Android's gain has mostly come at the expense of Symbian, Nokia's antiquated platform that will eventually disappear as Nokia shifts its product offerings on to Windows Phone.

Interestingly, despite its dominance, Google only offers limited support for Google Play in China and Android apps are usually downloaded in third-party app markets.

Apple, meanwhile, has never really gained traction after a weak market entry on only one of the country's major providers. The iPhone 5 will be available on two carriers, but as of now will not be distributed by the largest carrier, China Mobile. Additionally, while many Chinese consumers may fawn over iPhones, they are simply out of reach financially for a substantial part of the market.

Chinese Smartphone Maker Xiaomi doubles its market share with 15 Million Signups For Its Newest Phablet | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

XIAOMI DOUBLES ITS MARKET SHARE: Xiaomi shipped 11 million devices in the first quarter of 2014, according to a statement from the company. That amounts to year-over-year growth of 146%, faster growth than any other smartphone vendor globally during the quarter.

Xiaomi's global market share of shipments doubled compared to last year, to 4%. The results have rocketed it into the top rankings, and Xiaomi now numbers among the eight largest smartphone vendors in the world. The growth is impressive and disruptive. Xiaomi began selling handsets just over two years ago and is now larger than legacy vendors like Nokia and Motorola — companies that were recently acquired for $7.2 billion and $3 billion, respectively. 

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

That's more iPhones than Apple sold the weekend the iPhone 5S launched.
