Based on Samsung Boss JK Shin, the Galaxy S4, Samsung's first 1080p flagship, continues to be a significant success on the market, 40 million units sold. The development in sales has slowed down lower since that time, with around 5 million models been shipped in August.
That's quite a large number for any device that's been available on the market just for around six several weeks, and Samsung is most likely feeling quite happy about this. Obviously, that does not mean the organization has had simple to use, because it has released the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Gear, and also the Galaxy Round, the very first smartphone having a curved display, previously handful of several weeks, although it remains seen whether success from the Galaxy S4 could be duplicated.
According to a recent report regarding app market purchases, Android is set to become the most popular app platform in the world within the next few months. Driven by new devices from Samsung, Google's app store, called Play, has surged ahead, despite a continued lack of top-end applications and consumers who still spend lower amounts. There are now 900million Android devices in the market compared to 600 million Apple products.
Although Apple recently celebrated 50 billion app downloads, users of Google's Android platform are currently downloading 500 million more apps per month.
Apple says that more than 850,000 titles are available at its App Store, while Google recently said that 48 billion apps in total had been downloaded from Play. Approximately 2billion iOS apps are downloaded each months, compared with 2.5billion from Play.
Continuing at current rates, Google is expected to be in the lead by October. Great news for Android lovers :)
