After Japan, Apple has conquered Great Britain (GB) in smartphone sales leaving behind Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone. Unlike, Samsung and BlackBerry, Nokia has shown a growth.
According to a report by Kantar World Panel ComTech on smartphone sales, Apple’s share of the smartphone market stood at 32.1 percent in GB from December 1st 2013 to February 28th, 2014. Whereas, Android’s share dropped to 54 percent from 58.3 percent as compared to the last year. BlackBerry, meanwhile, slipped from 5.1 percent to 3.4 percent. And, it clearly indicates, both Android and BlackBerry didn’t perform so well.
Kantar noted Windows Phone share grew from 6.7 percent to 10.1 percent over the same time span, and indeed it’s a good news for Windows Phone lovers.
While GB statistics are worrisome for Android, but, if we consider other European countries – Germany, France, Italy, Spain – Android has increased its lead over the iOS by 2 percent, and bumped 68.9 percent, while the latter plunged to 19 percent with 2 percent drop.
Even, on the hardware front, the results are same. BlackBerry, Nokia and Apple have increased its sales, in which the Finnish company climbed from 5.6 to 9.6 percent.
