Android- and iOS-Powered Smartphones Expand Their Share of the Market in the First Quarter

Smartphones powered by the Android and iOS mobile operating systems accounted for more than eight out of ten smartphones shipped in the first quarter of 2012 (1Q12). According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, the mobile operating systems held shares of 59.0% and 23.0% respectively of the 152.3 million smartphones shipped in 1Q12. During the first quarter of 2011, the two operating systems held a combined share of 54.4%. The share gains mean that Android and iOS have successfully distanced themselves from previous market leaders Symbian and BlackBerry, as well as Linux and Windows Phone 7/Windows Mobile.

“The popularity of Android and iOS stems from a combination of factors that the competition has struggled to keep up with,” said Ramon Llamas, senior research analyst with IDC’s Mobile Phone Technology and Trends program. “Neither Android nor iOS were the first to market with some of these features, but the way they made the smartphone experience intuitive and seamless has quickly earned a massive following.”

Sybase 365 Enables Globe Telecom To Expand Its Ipx Connectivity Globally

Sybase 365, a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc., the global leader in mobile messaging and mobile commerce services, today announced it has been working with Globe Telecom, Philippines’ leading mobile operator, running live commercial voice traffic across multiple Asian operators. IPX Voice is one of several innovative services Sybase 365 offers on its Sybase® IPX 365™ network, enabling Globe to exchange international calls directly with other mobile operators rather than routing calls through traditional wholesale voice carriers.

“Today, our customers expect the highest quality of service. As we provide services and solutions that give our subscribers a more enriched mobile experience, the same is expected for international calls,” said Rizza Maniego-Eala, International Business Group head of Globe Telecom. “Through this partnership, with Sybase 365, we will have direct control over the routing and quality of voice calls which can positively increase international voice revenues. In addition, Globe will be well positioned to expand its IPX connectivity globally across Asia and EMEA.”
