Doubles the presence of iPhone online
The data on the market share held by Safari Mobile among the available browsers were collected by Net Applications and used by the analyst Andy Hargreaves to process the smartphone sales estimates for the quarter ending at the end of September. First of all, the share of online attendance of the iPhone doubled, from the previous 0.16 percent, recorded up to 11 July, to the current 0.31 percent. The result is closely linked to the launch of the 3G model and the extension of the geographical presence of the Apple smartphone. Hargreaves notes that the share of web surfers on the iPhone 4 times higher than that of Windows Mobile and equal to about 40 percent of the share held by Windows systems.
The highlights of Hargreaves' analysis were published by AppleInsider. If all the growth trends recorded up to this point continue, the analyst finally predicts that iPhone sales could be significantly higher than those initially calculated. In practice compared to the 3.5 million iPhones of the previous estimate, Hargreaves now claims that iPhone could sell an additional 1.5 million units.
