Smartphone market notes: IDC on the US
Another recent report is comes from IDC, on the US smartphone market. IDC report by device, which as I said in the previous post is not so interesting to us software types. But a few months ago they did give the New York Times some data broken down by OS and I have put that together with IDC’s latest report. It’s a patchy picture, and based only on percent (not actual volumes).
Again, the iPhone dip in Q2 is partly at least a result of the Q3 3G shipment. Recent Microsoft numbers are not available that I can find. And all this should be taken with a pinch of salt of course. For one set of reasons why, see this post at Mobile Opoprtunity.�
