Android News Byte: Android Wins in App Downloads, but IOS Makes More Money

Wochit 0:55 mins

New numbers show that Google Play exceeded Apple's App Store in app downloads by 10 percent in the second quarter; however, Apple earned 2.3 times the revenue.

Motorola has a lot of ground to make up in brand and reputation, and this phone alone won?t single-handedly change its perception in the market. Thanks to midrange Nokias devices, Windows Phone has now well and truly become Europe's third smartphone ecosystem -- albeit a long way behind iOS and Android.
