1.24 million Android smartphones are already in the MTS Ukraine network

The mobile operator MTS Ukraine counted the number of smartphones in its network and made

Disappointing interesting conclusions:The number of Android smartphones in its network exceeded one million and reached 1,240,000 units. The figure turned out to be quite large, although it does not reach the number of Symbian smartphones – There are now one and a half million of them in the operator’s network. The difference, however, is that Android shows growth dynamics of a serious 73% per quarter, and Symbian began the path of natural death in a situation of absence of “birth rate growth” with its -3% per quarter.

By simple arithmetic calculations you canestimate the sales volumes of smartphones on Android, iOS and Windows Phone in Ukraine for the fourth quarter of 2012: in the MTS Ukraine network, 520,000, 100,000 and 45,000 were added, respectively. What if we extrapolate the picture to the two remaining operators? 8220;big three” (I personally think a fair coefficient of 2.5) gives sales volumes of 1.3 million units per quarter for Android smartphones, 250,000 for the completely gray market iPhone of all generations and 110,000 Windows Phone smartphones, consisting of slightly more than all models Nokia Lumia line.
