									Android befall iOS in popularity
in Singapore, HK
When it comes to Smartphones, It is clearly a battle between
Android and iOS. But signs are emerging that Apple might be
losing 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
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
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.
