Good news for Android - it has 52% marketshare and Samsung is the official new smartphone king - toppling Nokia for the first time ever. Sales of Android OS smarties, which includes HTC, LG and Samsung, doubled over the Q3 period, catapulting it to the top of the smartphone charts, followed by Nokia's Symbian at 16.9% and Apple following in third place with 15% marketshare.
Finally admitting a problem with iPhone 4S battery exists, a cure is coming within weeks, Apple insist. The company admitted a "small number" of iPhone 4 owners have complained of low battery life on their new smartphone, which has been blamed on bug within battery.
What a difference a week makes. One week ago, iPhone 4S has just been launched to an underwhelmed public. Just seven days on Steve Jobs is no longer with us but new iPhone has been embraced lovingly by consumers.
