Smartphone Market Share : Windows Phone Vs. iOS Vs. Android

Microsoft may have been a late entrant to the Smartphone segment (not considering the popular but old fashioned Windows Mobile here) but it does look like Redmond is doing a lot of things right so far. The Windows Phone UI and functionalities are extremely slick and despite the relatively few apps available on the Windows Phone marketplace compared to the iOS AppStore or Android Market, a lot of people have started to check out their smartphones. Today, Windows Phone enjoys an encouraging, but not so great 1.9% market share. But that could apparently change in the next few years thanks to the Lumia series of phones from Nokia that run on the Windows Phone platform.

According to the latest report from IHS iSuppli, Microsoft Windows Phone could beat Apple’s iOS in market share as early as 2015. In their report, IHS claim that 2012 could be the watershed year for Microsoft as their Windows Phone grows in popularity from a market share of sub 2% levels to as much as 9%. This is good not just for Microsoft but also Nokia that has seen its popularity fizzle in recent times to the iPhone and Android handsets.

Here is how the market share of the three big Smartphone players expected to move over the next three years.

iOS
2011 : 18.0%
2012 : 18.0%
2013 : 17.3%
2014 : 16.8%
2015 : 16.6%

Android
2011 : 47.4%
2012 : 53.9%
2013 : 55.9%
2014 : 57.8%
2015 : 58.1%

Windows Phone
2011 : 1.9%
2012 : 9.0%
2013 : 15.3%
2014 : 16.1%
2015 : 16.7%

The share of the rest of the Smartphone OSes is expected to fall from 32.7% in 2011 to just 8.6% in 2015. Is RIM going to be dead by then?

iOS 4.3 Features List Summary

The much awaited iOS 4.3 is finally expected to be released by Apple this week. Let us have a glimpse at the whole lot of new features that have been introduced in this new version as well as the few changes that occurred in the successive beta releases of the operating system.

Below is the list of new features and changes that have been made in the iOS 4.3 :

1. A personal hotspot (For the iPhone Only) :

This feature allows users to share their iPhone 3G connection simultaneously with 5 mobile devices. This feature can be enabled through the settings app. Already available to the Verizon iPhone users , this feature will be made available to the GSM iPhone users as well.

2. Airplay :

You can wirelessly stream your digital media from the iPhone, iPad and the iPod touch to the Apple TV 2G or any other features having airplay enabled. Previously, this feature was made available to many pre-installed applications like Youtube and iPod/Video applications. However iOS 4.3 removes those restrictions by allowing other third party applications, Safari mobile browser and the pre-installed photo application.

3. Side Switch Toggle (For the iPad only.) :

The rotation lock was changed by Apple in the iOS 4.2 to mute switch like the iPhone, however iPad users will now be having an option to select the side switch located at the top right corner as a rotation lock switch or a mute button.

4. Notes to have a new font :

The iOS 4.2 had given users an option to select from only 2 fonts, that is Helvitica and Chalkboard instead of Marker Felt. The iOS 4.3 now replaces the Chalkboard font with the Noteworthy font.

5. Cancel/Delete installing of applications midway :

Users will now be able to cancel downloading applications and delete them midway as the earlier version of the OS only had the option to pause the downloads.

6. Customized alerts for messages (For the iPhone only) :

You can now set the number of times you wish to be alerted for a new sms or mms. The Repeat Alert option has been changed to Play Alert Tone with options for once, twice, 3 times, 5 times and 10 times.

7. A redesigned updates page for the app store :

A new design of the update page for the iPad, iPhone/iPod touch will make installing applications that are already purchased for users a much easier task.

8. A push notification for Ping :

Apple`s social network for music will allow users to setup push notifications thus helping them find out what their favourite artists or friends are up to.

9. Addition of a Wait button :

A new wait button has been added to the Add contact extended keyboard with some of the other buttons reshuffled. Tapping the wait button will add a semicolon to the number.

Here is a screenshot of the Add contact screen in the iOS 4.3

Add Contact

10. Parental controls for Ping :

The iOS 4.3 gives a new parental control for the music based social network of Apple.

11. Location Services Settings :

These settings have been moved to the top level in the settings app instead of moving it under General so as to make it more convenient.

12. Compatibility :

iOS 4.3 will be compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, 4th and 3rd Generation iPod Touch and the iPad. However it will not be available for the iPhone 3G and the iPod Touch 2nd Generation thus making the iOS 4.2.1 the last possible update for these devices.

Lets hope and see if Apple promises us with these features and changes in the final release of the iOS 4.3 along with some few additional feautres as well.

iPhone Mobile Social Networking With iOS 4.3 Update

Apple looks set to roll out another iOS update before the Verizon iPhone hits the store on the 10th of next month.  Those who have gotten their hands to the developer beta version of iOS 4.3 have already been discovering new features like personal mobile hotspot that appears to be made available on the new iOS update.

An interesting discovery is that of a feature called ‘Find my friends‘ on iOS 4.3. While we have no clue about what this feature could eventually turn out to be, indications are that this could be a MobileMe service that could work similar to Google Latitude and could let users check out the location of their iPhone toting friends at any given time.

At the risk of sounding preposterous, the launch of a ‘Find my friends‘ service could also mean that Apple is looking at building some sort of social networking among iPhone users on the mobile front. The company already attempted a network among music lovers with Ping, that incidentally did not bring much success. It will be interesting to see how this new feature fares.

iOS 4.3 Beta Update – New Features Explained

Less than a day after a Netherlands based website had published a rumor claiming that an iOS 4.3 update that will bring personal hotspot to GSM phones is on its way, Apple has announced the release of a beta version of this new iOS firmware that will at present be available to developers. And as expected, personal mobile hotspot is indeed one of the features that will be available with this new update.

Besides this, the new iOS 4.3 update is also expected to come with a number of other enhancements. For one, users should now be able to stream videos from any third party apps to compatible devices over AirPlay. Also, Apple appears to have given in to demands from iPad users who were unhappy with the mute switch. With iOS 4.3, iPad users will now have an additional option in the Settings that will let users set the function of the side switch as either a ‘Orientation lock’ or ‘mute switch’.

In addition to this, the new iOS 4.3 update also appears to have introduced a few additional multitouch controls and modified the FaceTime icon. iOS 4.3 will not be available for iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G and older devices.
