Bringing The Mobile Device Heat
The battle for mobile device supremacy continues. When the iPhone hit the scene a few short years ago, it would have been inconceivable that a Linux-based upstart would overtake a device so alluring that people camped out overnight to buy one. Yet Android-based smartphone sales overtook those of Apple's device in mid-2010 and have accelerated ever since. Apple still leads the way in mindshare and innovation, particularly when it comes to tablets-and its sales numbers give the iPhone maker reason to be optimistic. According to Gartner, Apple's worldwide smartphone market share has nearly doubled year-over-year, going from 3.9 percent in Q1 2011 to 7.9 percent in the first quarter of this year. With iPhone 5 still to come, the mobile battle is only just beginning to heat up.
