Verizon grabs 12% of U.S. iPhone market in just one month

Mobile analytics company Chitika has been keeping a running tally of just how many iPhones are running on both AT&T and Verizon. Using the data flowing across its ad network, the company has calculated that almost 1 out of every 8 iPhones in the U.S. — 12.4% — are now running on Verizon Wireless’ network. Just one month ago, Verizon only had a 3% share of U.S. iPhones. Apple’s smartphone has been available on Verizon for just over thirty five — it will be interesting to see if Verizon’s iMomentum can be sustained over the next thirty days.  More →

82% of future tablet buyers will buy Apple’s iPad, survey suggests

According to an independent survey conducted by market research firm ChangeWave, Apple’s iPad still has no real competition in the eyes of consumers. ChangeWave released the results of its survey on Thursday, revealing that 82% of respondents planned to purchase the iPad instead of a competitive offering such as the Motorola XOOM, BlackBerry PlayBook or Samsung Galaxy Tab. The firm surveyed 3,091 consumers in the month of February — before the iPad 2 was announced and, for the most part, before the XOOM was available for consumers to try — and 27% said they planned to purchase a tablet in the future. Of those 835 people, a whopping 82% said they would be buying the Apple iPad. The Motorola XOOM found itself in the sights of 4% of the group and the BlackBerry PlayBook and Samsung Galaxy Tab each took 3% shares of ChangeWave’s sample. The remaining 8% intended to purchase a tablet other than the four devices named in the survey. More →

Google gobbles; search giant accounts for 6.4% of all Internet traffic

Here’s a shocking statistic. California based search giant Google accounts for 6.4% of all Internet traffic. That’s right, every time you google something, compose an email in Gmail, or watch a YouTube video you’re helping the Mountain View company generate 6.4% of the Internet’s traffic; a number that is up more than 1% since January. The information comes courtesy of online security company Arbor Networks who also note that “only one global ISP handles more traffic than Google.” Arbor speculates that Google’s share could be even greater — somewhere between 8 and 12 percent — if you included traffic handled by Google’s “Global Cache deployments.” That is a lot of traffic.
