PingDom: Android is the leading OS only in South Korea



MobileOS.globe

As you may know, today's StatCounter published its fresh report based on web analytics about mobile users. Unfortunately, StatCounter can monitor only web traffic, but not the way the smartphones are being used. However, the results of such research can offer many different data that can be organized in different ways.

For example, a vendor of network server monitoring tools Pingdom also took the Statcounter's results but analyzed only mobile OS usage, including the stats for iPod touch (iPad wasn't included). It was found that though the sales of Android-based smartphones have overtaken the sales of the iPhone in the US, such a statement does not take into account the fact that iPod touch is the most popular portable media player, and it is also based on iOS, which makes the latter the most popular mobile OS in the country.

statcounter-globalstats

Today's StatCounter published its fresh report based on web analytics about mobile users, where it is said that 34.3% of all American users generate web traffic from RIM's smartphones, while 33% browse the Internet with their iPhones. Two years ago Apple beated RIM in this stats, as iPhone users generate three times more traffic than those who have BlackBerry.

StatCounter reveals that a year ago Apple's iOS had 52.9% share in terms of mobile web usage, so such a drop is pretty huge. To make such conclusion the company analyzed 3 million websites with 15 billion page views per month.

Apple Stores Sold 8.8 iPads/hour on Black Friday



ipad

Piper Jaffray reports that iPads were walking out of the stores at a rate — 8.8 units per hour during the Black Friday. That translates into 25,000 iPads sold nationwide. There are no other Black Friday iPad sales to compare with. The iPad is expanding Apple’s market and that is significant, even though the per-hour number cited looks small by comparison to those when the iPad debuted in April. Macs were leaving the stores at 8.2 units per hour per store, down from 8.3 last year and 13 two years ago.

Adobe’s CEO revealed this week that Abode is currently testing Flash Player optimized for Apple’s new MacBook. It’s not a secret that new laptops are shipping without Flash preinstalled due to battery problem.

Adobe is looking to improve battery life on the MacBook Air with a new custom build of Adobe Flash. The company believes that the key to conserving battery life lies in hardware acceleration. “When we have access to hardware acceleration, we've proven that Flash has equal or better performance on every platform,” – Adobe claims.

iPhone 3G Performance On iOS 4.2



After iOS 4 release in June, it was laggy and generally not a good experience for many iPhone 3G users. Nevertheless, the due to release iOS 4.2 is running pretty well on iPhone 3G. Here is a video of iPhone 3G running the iOS 4.2 GM version, which is usually identical to the final release. The video was shot by TIPB.com.

iPhone 3G Speed Test: iOS 4.0 versus iOS 4.1



We remember that iOS 4.0 was so slow on our 3G. Late last week, Apple announced, among other things, that iOS 4.1 fixed performance on the iPhone 3G. We put their claim to the test. In the video above, the iPhone 3G battles itself in an epic speed test to find out if Apple's claims are true: Is iOS 4.1 faster than 4.0, or is it just a wash?

Future iPads: You Want A Camera With That?



ipad

Steve Jobs might announce something yesterday he wasn’t supposed to. At yesterday’s event, Jobs indicated that iOS 4.2 would include all of the features included in versions 4.0 and 4.1 for the iPhone. When the iPad’s iOS is updated this November to version 4.2 it will be the first significant upgrade for the device since it debuted last spring.

Would that include HDR photography? If so, this would mean that at some point the iPad will be getting a camera. Perhaps Jobs was simply lost in the moment and meant nothing with his comment. But let’s be honest: Would anyone be surprised to hear that the iPad is getting a camera?
