We all know Samsung is popular and selling thousands of devices while I’m typing up this post. So this new report coming out of Opera Mediaworks shouldn’t be a huge surprise to anyone. Samsung is still dominating the Android market, as expected. Samsung made up 58.45% of the market share for Android devices while HTC sat at second place with 10.88%. Motorola coming in third at 8.7% which is surprising since they hadn’t launched anything since last year. Rounding out the top 5 we have LG at 7.2% and Sony at 2.24%.

Now if you compare the data to Apple, Samsung gets only 17.41% of the market share. Apple has 43.75%, Nokia at 10.43% which is rather surprising given they are only creating Windows Phone devices. Following by Nokia, we have RIM at 3.49%, HTC at 3.09% and Motorola at the bottom at 2.75%.
Looking at the tablet world, which is primarily dominated by ASUS, Acer, Samsung and Apple, Samsung has a 6.11% market share with Apple having a whopping 91.2%. Acer sits in third place 1.15%. Quite surprising not to see Amazon, Barnes & Noble or ASUS in the tablet category, although all of their devices are rather old now.
Opera Mediaworks has plenty more mobile data in their report. Including Traffic share by mobile OS, where Android sites at 31.24% and iOS at 43.75%. They also show publisher revenue which puts sports as the #1 in revenue and music, video and media as #1 for impressions. They also have data for ad impressions, where the US is sitting at #1 followed by the UK and Indonesia. They have plenty of other interesting data as well, which we could spend all day talking about. But you can find all the information here.
How many of you are surprised by these numbers? To be honest, I was surprised by Apple’s numbers in tablets. I knew the iPad was dominating, but I didn’t think it was by that much. Looks like these Android manufacturers need to step up a bit more, right? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
