Android befall iOS in popularity in Singapore: Internet Technology by Abney and Associates

When it comes to Smartphones, It is clearly a battle between Android and iOS.  But signs are emerging that Apple might be loosing grip in the two Asian markets.

Conforming to Reuters report, most of the well-off smartphone users in Singapore and Hong Kong are turning to Android handsets, mostly Samsung, rather than iOS of Apple.  The trouble that iPhone is their desire to be different that causing them as weakness and in turn an advantage to competing device.

Reuters states that Apple’s share of mobile devices in Singapore–iPad and iPhone–fell from a peak of 72 percent in January 2012 to 50 percent this month. As for Android devices, they now account for 43 percent of the market, up from 20 percent in the same month last year.

Hong Kong shows no different aftereffect, iOS devices declined from 45 percent to 30 percent in a year, while Android accounts for about two-thirds of smartphones used.

These findings are not surprising at all, maybe not foreseen but definitely not shocking.  We are used to long lines for the new iPhone but we are seeing longer lines for the Samsung Galaxy S III and Note II LTE in Singapore.

With the support of our familiarity, we can safely claim that the interest in the apparent S4 will surely come as another hit in the market for the coming months.
