The History of the Smartphone Market From 2005-2012 [Chart]



Check out these charts that visualize the rise and fall of key players in the smartphone market since 2005. The data is from comScore's 2013 Mobile Future in Focus whitepaper.

While Android and iOS might appear poised to lock up the smartphone market for good, it is worth looking at the history of the smartphone market to understand just how quickly fortunes can change. In 2005, the market was dominated by Palm, Symbian and BlackBerry. However, by the following year all three had ceded control to Microsoft as the new market share leader. 2008-2010 saw BlackBerry stage a comeback to assume the #1 position before eventually giving way to the upstart Android platform in 2011. The only key player in the current smartphone market never to have owned the market share lead, interestingly enough, is iOS.

Cydia Сounts 18 Million Jailbroken Devices in Six Weeks



Saurik reports that about 18 million devices were counted by Cydia in the last six weeks, between untethered jailbreak release and iOS 6.1.3 which blocks this jailbreak. According to Forbes:

In the six weeks since evasi0n was released, however, close to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices. He says he’s counted 18.2 million unique devices running iOS 6 visiting Cydia, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches. Those numbers vastly exceed previous jailbreaks such as Jailbreakme 3, a popular hacking tool for iOS released in the summer of 2011 that was used on around 2 million devices, according to a count at the time by creator Nicholas Allegra.

The iOS 6.1.3 Lock Screen Can Still Be Bypassed



Apple recently released iOS 6.1.3 which fixed a lock screen vulnerability; however, it turns out there is yet another one to be fixed.

As demonstrated in the video below, it's possible to get access to the Contacts app and then other areas of the phone including photos by using Voice Dial then ejecting the SIM card.

Sorry, iOS 6.1.3 has a new security flaw, but can be avoided easily. You should disable the "Voice Dial" option if you want to be safe.

Take a look...
