Google’s Android OS captures 84.6% smartphone market share in Q2

Google’s Android operating system continues its dominance in the smartphone market as it has made a record 84.6 percent share of the global smartphone shipments in the second quarter of 2014, according to Strategy Analytics.
According to the research firm, 295.2 million smartphones were shipped during the period, which saw 27 percent annual growth from last year’s 233 million units.
Thanks to the increasing demand of low-priced smartphones in Asia and Africa, 249.6 million Android-based smartphones were shipped in the second quarter, which is up from 186.8 million a year earlier. Apple’s iOS accounted for 35.2 million smartphones shipped during the quarter.
Apple is going through a tough condition as their market share slipped to 11.9 percent from 13.4 percent in the same quarter last year. It is expected that market share will increase when Apple will launch their bigger-screen iPhone later this year and millions of Android users around the world will switch to the new device.
Strategy Analytics also reported that Samsung captured 25.2 percent share of the market worldwide which accounted for 74.5 millions smartphones shipped in the quarter. This South Koran based company saw its market share decline from 32.6 percent a year earlier.

The research firm also predicted that the number of smartphone users will reach to 2.5 billion by the end of 2015 thanks to the strong growth in East Asia.

With this match, the 31-year-old player is going to make his Test debut. He has been called up as the back-up wicketkeeper. It has been stated by the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association that the player will leave for England on August 4.
He has caught the attention of selectors by showing his superb performance in Australia tour with the India ‘A’ team. He scored 219, 101 and 110 in the First Class games against Australia ‘A’.
Naman Ojha had a most successful season in Ranji trophy scoring 835 runs in 7 games. For the national team, he has so far played one ODI and two T20 internationals and scored 1 and 12 respectively.
