While RIM may be deemed the company that launched the true smartphone revolution with its BlackBerry devices and coined the very concept, Apple will always be termed as the company which popularized the notion of smartphones. And its not surprising to note now that iOS and Android smartphones dominate the total shipments of the smartphones made during the last quarter of 2012.


This has been revealed in a report by IDC. In the report, IDC has attempted to cut down the smartphone shipments into individual platforms, giving a very clear view of the relative success of each of these platforms.

Android: Android has become the leading platform in the smartphone world, with most sales and users. Since multiple vendors are rolling out Android devices, this is not surprising. However, Samsung stands at the top of the list of Android smartphone vendors. During the first quarter, Android smartphone accounted for more than half the total shipments, with Samsung accounting for 45.4% of the total Android shipments.

iOS: Apple has been doing great on the iOS front, with its iPhone line of smartphones doing exceptionally well. The growth is strong and together, iOS and Android platform bagged 82% of the total smartphone shipments made during the first quarter.

Symbian: Nokia’s Symbian platform is on a decline is on a decline, quite understandably so since Nokia is now betting on Windows Phone devices and is trying to make a transition. However, Nokia can’t pull the plug on the platform yet since Symbian still has a massive following and many users still prefer the platform.

BlackBerry: While BlackBerry pretty much pioneered the recent smartphone age, it has failed in face of more competitive devices from Apple and Samsung. The sales of BlackBerry devices have been on a downward spiral and the only hope for RIM remains in the form of BB 10, which is yet to launch.

Linux: Linux has a small presence in the smartphone market and it is pretty much expected to remain so. However, it has support from some industry giants such as Samsung which continues shipping our Linux-based smartphones.

Windows Phone: Nokia and Microsoft have put all their efforts into making Windows Phone platform a success. And it seems that Windows Phone devices are gaining traction, slowly but surely. While we don’t expect Windows Phone to become a very popular platform any time soon, it may stand a fairly good chance in the long run.
