A recent report in the Metro compiled by uSwitch based on data about which Smartphones people are buying and searching for, claims that the Apple iPhone 4 is no longer the favourite Smartphone in the UK
The UK’s new number one is the HTC Desire, which uses the Android operating system.
The Top Ten Most Popular UK Phones (according to uSwitch)
1. HTC Desire
2. HTC Desire HD
3. HTC Wildfire
4. Blackberry Curve 8520
5. Samsung Galaxy S
6. Apple iPhone 4 (16Gb)
7. Motorola DEFY
8. Sony Ericsson S500i
9. Samsung G800
10. Samsung i600
The fall in popularity of the iPhone 4 has been linked to the HTC’s varying price points, making it more accessible to a wider range of people.
A report in Mashable from comScore points out that Google’s Android rose from 23.5% market share in America from October 2010 to 31.2% in January 2011, enough to secure first place from RIM’s BlackBerry. Making the Android platform the most widely used in the UK and America.
