Apple’s deal with Japan’s largest mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo was a smartphone move for the company, as according to a recent report, the deal has helped the Apple iPhone grab a 36 percent share of Japan’s mobile phone market.
The news comes in a report from research firm MM Research Institute LTD, who have said that sales of the Apple iPhone accounted for 36.5 percent of all mobile phone sales in Japan for the 12 months up until the end of March 2014.
It’s the time of the month again, Google has released the Android distribution numbers for April, and it shows a decent picture of how many devices are running the latest operating system from Google.
According to the latest figures, Android KitKat is running on 8.5 percent of the total devices, rising from 5.3 percent last month. This is a decent figure, but it could be mainly due to the fact that Samsung and HTC released their latest flagship devices running on the latest OS.
