Vuclip Releases Global Mobile Devices Rankings for Q4 2012

MILPITAS, CA, Jan 22, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Global interest is bubbling up for the Samsung Galaxy S III, even as BlackBerry retains a strong hold on much of the global mobile handset market. This is according to Vuclip's Global Devices Ranking Q4 2012 published in its January 2013 Global Video Insights report.


At the top of the Q4 2012 Global Mobile Devices Rankings, there were no notable changes, with the iPhone remaining dominant. Further down the list, the quarter saw the continued growth of Android under Samsung, led by the Samsung Galaxy S III, which leapt 18 places in just three months. Feature phones continued to slide, while Samsung's low-end Android handsets, the Galaxy Y and Galaxy Ace, moved up the list with modest strength. There was one bright spot in Nokia's line.

The Nokia E72 rose five spots against expectations. This was not a rally for Symbian as a whole, however, as the newer Nokia 5233 shed ten spots. This may indicate that the utilitarian hardware features of the older E72 have a lasting appeal that the conventional touchscreen 5233 lacks.

Here are the top 10 devices, ranked by video views, globally: ------------------------------------------------------------- Q4 Rank Vendor Model Q3 Rank ------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Apple iPhone 1 ------------------------------------------------------------- 2 RIM BlackBerry 8520 2 ------------------------------------------------------------- 3 RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 3 ------------------------------------------------------------- 4 RIM BlackBerry 9300 4 ------------------------------------------------------------- 5 RIM BlackBerry 9900 6 ------------------------------------------------------------- 6 RIM BlackBerry 9700 5 ------------------------------------------------------------- 7 Samsung GT-I9100 8 ------------------------------------------------------------- 8 Nokia C3-00 7 ------------------------------------------------------------- 9 Samsung Galaxy S III 27 ------------------------------------------------------------- 10 Nokia E5 10 ------------------------------------------------------------- "We are seeing the shift we predicted with the advent of larger screen, low cost smartphones," said Nickhil Jakatdar, CEO, Vuclip.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
