PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "StatCounter's latest Internet Wars Report found that, in the month of June, Samsung devices accounted for 25.43 percent of smartphone Internet usage, compared to 25.09 for Apple's iPhone devices. Samsung has moved into the leadership position in smartphone web use over the course of the last year, which has seen the South Korean tech giant's share grow from 19.46 percent just 12 months ago."

But its Apple problem

They fail to realise (or MUCH MORE LIKELY, to capitalize on) the FACT that people do not buy high end. When generalizing low end is what ordinary people buy.

Even though low-end should have lower net usage per smartphone (cheaper smartphone -> cheper net plan..), number overwhelm this lack.

Apple can not lead.

Can not lead in SALE numbers (cause high-end is minor portion of overall market).

Can not lead in USAGE numbers (cause high-end is minor portion of overall installed base).

That also may indicate that smartphone market is settling down. Apple is always niche (high-end, and high-margin, high-influence niche but still niche) player.

PC's? Music players? Now smartphones. And tablets...

(And that is why Apple need to find new market to enter from time to time.)
