Motorola DROID accounts for around 25% of all U.S. Android web traffic?

Well, kind of. Our boys at Clicky (awesome site analytics service, by the way) released a report this morning compiled of data from over 150,000 websites which have their tracking code installed. It’s a pretty large sample size, and what they found was that the DROID, less than a week old, already accounts for around 25% of all Android traffic they see in the United States. We’ll let you guys tear this apart in the comments…

Thanks, Sean! More →

T-Mobile loses "Even More" customers in Q3

T-Mobile loses "Even More" customers in Q3

TMobileLogo_1

Here at BGR we love the underdog, so we are a little disappointed to have to tell you about the latest figures coming out of the T-Mobile camp. T-Mobile released their Q3 numbers today and suffered a net loss of 77,000 subscribers, with 140,000 customers packing up their number and shacking up with another carrier. Compare the loss with the 325,000 subscribers it gained in Q2 of this year or the 670,000 it gained in Q3 of last year, and, well ouch; it would appear as though T-Mo’s momentum might be slowing. The profits also shrunk a bit, in Q2 T-Mo posted a $425 million profit while in Q3 that number shrank to $417 million. So, will the new “Even More” plans, Android handsets, and new BlackBerry smartphones be enough to get T-Mobile back on track for Q4? Or will the comparatively meek holiday lineup make for a flat Q4? We’ll find out. More →

AdMob issues June report; 46% of iPhone/iPod touch users are outside the US, Android OS share balloons

AdMob issues June report; 46% of iPhone/iPod touch users are outside the US, Android OS share balloons

Oui oui! In its latest mobile metrics report, AdMob takes a look at the geographic distribution of the iPhone and iPod touch for the first time (publicly, at least). Truth be told, the results are pretty interesting. First, the background: AdMob serves mobile ads and is surely the go-to option for iPhone OS devs and mobile Web devs alike. The group analyzed data from over 16.8 million unique iPhones and iPod touch units browsing over 7,000 mobile sites and using over 2,500 different ad-toting apps over the course of June. Here are some highlights from AdMob’s findings:

  • 54 percent of iPhone and iPod touch users are in the United States.
  • Following the U.S., France, Germany and the UK each had more than five percent of all iPhone and iPod touch devices.
  • iPod touch users represent 38 percent of total iPhone OS devices in North America.
  • Of the 45 million iPhone OS devices Apple has sold, approximately 13 million iPhones and 12 million iPod touch units have been sold in the US. That leaves roughly 20 million devices spread across the rest of the world.

Looking beyond Apple, AdMob tosses=d a tasty little Android tidbit in last month’s report as well. “Requests from the Android OS increased 25 percent month over month. Android has five percent worldwide OS share and is slightly ahead of Windows Mobile for the first time.” Ok don’t get too excited — Android hasn’t yet exceeded Windows mobile’s market share where devices are concerned. Apparently Android users just do a whole lot more browsing and play with a whole lot more apps than WinMo users. Hit the jump for AdMob’s press release.
