Android a les parts de marché, iOS a les profits


Android est loin devant Apple en terme de part de marché. 88% pour Android ! Cependant, les smartphones Android semblent être moins aptes à la navigation sur internet (ou alors le public qui les achète y va moins), car autant les parts de marchés en terme de vente de smartphones neufs sont clairement à l’avantage d’Android, alors que celle de la navigation sont beaucoup moins claires… Comme si les utilisateurs de smartphones iOS allaient beaucoup plus sur internet que ceux d’Android.

De plus, apparemment les profits dans le monde Android sont extrêmement faibles. En témoigne un article dans investors.com :

Apple’s smartphone market share by unit shipments is declining, but it continues to dominate where it counts: profits.

BMO Capital Markets analyst Tim Long estimates that Apple accounted for 103.6% of smartphone industry operating profits in the third quarter. Its share is over 100% because other vendors lost money in the business, resulting in Apple having more smartphone profit than the industry netted overall. In the year-earlier period, Apple grabbed 90% of smartphone profits, Long said in a research report Thursday.

Apple was No. 1 by a mile in smartphone operating profit in Q3. Among major vendors, Samsung was No. 2 in smartphone profits with a tiny 0.9% share, he said. Money-losers in the smartphone business last quarter included LG and HTC, Long said.
