Photo sharing made easy with Nokia

Nowadays, people are getting into the trend of sharing photos via online albums, Facebook posts and picture messages. A day won’t go by without them presenting pictures of how great their day was or something that interests them. This fad has become more prevalent since the discovery of the ease and convenience of uploading and sharing photos through mobile phones.

However, it hasn’t always been like that. Before, people would store and share their photos using physical albums. Also, the process of taking, processing, printing and sticking photos in an album would take weeks. It was not until the 80s that digitalization of photography was introduced. People were then able to hand over a CD of images or attach a photo file by email. Then the evolution of internet opened more ways of sharing photos and videos online. Blogging allowed people to post photos and views of just about anything.

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.”
