Apple’s happy Christmas
Apple took Christmas once again, claims Flurry: Apple’s mobile products generated over half of all new device activations worldwide from December 19 to Christmas Day. This means 51.3% of all the new mobile devices activated in the period were manufactured by Apple. Samsung took just 17.7% and Microsoft/Nokia 5.8%. Others took 2% or less. This means that for every new Samsung device activated over Christmas, three Apple mobile products were activated. Apple activated around nine mobile products for each Microsoft Lumia device. When it came to online sales, iOS accounted for 27% of total online sales, four times that of Android’s 7.6%, claims IBM.
