Research and Markets: Android device base by Vendor, Handset Model, Region and Country Database Service 2013

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9mzp88/android_device) has announced the addition of the "Android device base by Vendor, Handset Model, Region and Country Database Service" subscription to their offering.

This service includes quarterly delivery of a database listing the total quantity of active android devices by handset model, region and country, as well as analyst enquires related to the database. With global shipments increasing by 280 % in 2011, android smartphones have attained a global smartphone market share of 32 % in a relatively short span of time from just 13 % in 2010. Google recently announced in its Q3 2011 conference call that the total number of android activations had surpassed 190 million, up from 135 million in Q2 2011. In particular, with the entry of Chinese and Indian vendors into the market, the race to lower android smartphone prices is gaining momentum, which in consequence has lead to the early emergence of mid-tier android devices. Furthermore Google's recently announced acquisition of Motorola with its 17,000 approved and 7500 pending patents, will considerably assist in the protection of android and it's ecosystem from patent infringement lawsuits. The move is further likely boost android sales, and consequently the market share.

The database covers the worldwide market divided in 7 regions (Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, Latin and Central America) over 215 android devices from Acer, Altek, Commtiva, Coolpad, Dell, Dopod, GarminAsus, Gigabyte, HTC, Huawei, i-Mobile, INQ Mobile, KT Tech, KTFT, K-Touch, Lenovo, LG, Micromax, Motorola, NEC, Pantech & Curitel, Samsung, Sharp, SK telesys, Sony Ericsson, Spice Mobiles, Toshiba, Videocon Mobile and ZTE. The target audience for this report includes handset manufacturers, application developers and mobile network operators. The following 13 major countries are individually covered as well: U.S.A, U.K, Canada, Germany, Brazil, Russia, India, China, Indonesia, Mexico, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. Further statistics from additional countries can be supplied on demand. The database reveals that that HTC's Wildfire series and Samsung's Galaxy series of smartphones are leading the market share, with the U.S and China leading the market from a regional perspective.
