Can anything stop iPhone growth? What will 2010 do? Following the trend iPhone and Blackberry devices will be equal market share.
Mobile Internet Use Only about 1 in 6 smart phones generate two thirds of all mobile web browsing – the iPhone. Nokia have the most devices, the second largest footprint of smart phones is about 1 in 5 of all smart phones from Blackberry Google phones have only 4% of the market share, but generate nearly 1 in 10 of all mobile web browsing. Palm and Windows Mobile fail to generate significant App Downloads. 50% of all apps downloaded to a smart phone are downloaded to an iPhone Source: (Net Applications, AdMob, Gartner)
What does iPhone market Growth mean? If iPhone reached 30% of smart phone market at current activity other mobile traffic would be as significant as Yahoo is to Google. http://gigaom.com/2010/03/18/the-mobile-os-market/
What about Opera Mini? But, Opera Mini is now on the scene – a Blackberry and Android browser that works. Watch out iPhone? http://www.opera.com/mobile/
Apple are a marketing channel iTunes / AppStore is estimated to have between 100m to 150m users worldwide. Each of these can buy services with one click. AppStore is a Marketing Channel
The rest of the stores / market places? Nokia, Blackberry and MS have equivalent AppStores. But they are smaller, they have less choice, less users and smaller marketing from the manufactures. PC based app browsing is a must that is not available across the application stores. Advertising of the apps and choice is still small compared to AppStore – there needs to be a challenger for “there is an app for that” Perhaps a 3 rd party will help out – what if I can buy Apps and Music for my smart phone from Amazon?
