Samsung’s (005930) Galaxy S III is a big hit, but it’s still playing second fiddle to the iPhone. The latest numbers from mobile advertising network Chitika show that the iPhone 5 is already generating more traffic across its network than the Galaxy S III, despite the fact that the new iPhone only came out three weeks ago while Samsung’s flagship device has been on the market for months. In fact, Chitika has found that the iPhone 5 claims a 56% share of all traffic produced by the two devices while the Galaxy S III claims a 44% share. The firm says that the iPhone 5’s big sales numbers “along with new 4G browsing speeds which encourage data usage, are the most likely explanation for this tremendous growth” in data consumption.
