iPhone the Number 1 Smartphone for 3 years, more to come?

iPhone, the most popular smartphone

Most popular smartphone for the past 3 years? If this question is asked, I’m sure most will answer iPhone. Yes, iPhone have been the most popular smartphone since 2009, and still remains as the most popular. Since a few years ago, iPhone slowly grew from a small market share, to now almost all my friends are using one.

Millennial Media, did a report and ranked all smartphone by impression. Only iPhone and Blackberry Curve stayed in the chart for 12 months. So I’m pretty sure in 2-3 years down the road, iPhone will still be in this chart.

Apple’s Advantages

But how did Apple achieved this? From my point of view, Apple have a very strong advantage of having control of both Hardware and Software of the iPhone. Not only software works well, it works very well with the phone. Android, one of iPhone’s strongest competitor now, is not having this benefit. Thus sparks off Google’s recent purchase of Motorola Mobility. Now Google’s Android will have some control over their hardware and all of their software. This will put Android in a stronger position.

So will we see both iPhone and Android Phone on the chart in the next 3 years? Let’s Stay tuned.
