to a survey by AdMob, Apple has increased its lead in
smartphone data traffic and iPhone users currently account to 50
percent of all mobile data traffic.
Symbian is strailing behind at 25 percent, a drop from 29 percent,
while Android grew by one percent to 11 percent. RIM's share dropped
from 8 to 7 percent and Windows Mobile dropped from 5 to 3 percent.
While Apple has still not come close to claiming 50 percent of all
smartphone sales, the numbers are quite staggering. Symbian phones
outsell the iPhone by 46 to 17 percent, but iPhone users still manage
to account for one half of all data traffic.
Not that we're too surprised. Nokia's Symbian is really not the OS of
choice for serious users or internet intensive applications.
