Numbers of new model iPhone sales larger than expected

This year, Apple decided not to give us opening period sales due to supply constraints. Cupertino chose to delay any figures until its earnings call on October 25th. However, new Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) reports are able to give a good insight into iPhone sales of this quarter. …

Lessening cash flows for continued HTC woes

I still love HTC. I really do. Sure, they’ve made some missteps over the years in terms of product, and they may have put out one too many phones that are pretty much exactly the same bar shape and look, but Nokia did the same thing when they …

HTC post some rather disappointing revenue figures

Following the launch of the HTC 10, all eyes are on the HTC revenue figures. The company has just announced their unaudited revenue for May 2016 and, well, things don’t look too hot. The company have announced an NT$6.75 bn revenue for May 2016. For  January to May …

HTC announces first quarter loss

I’ve got a HTC 10 in my hands right now and, I must say, it’s a strong bit of kit. Whether this phone knows just how much is riding on it is another question though, as the HTC figures (released today) put a lot of emphasis on this …

The death of Windows Phone. Market share sinks further.

Say what you like about my Windows Phone tirade, it’s all sadly true. Call it what you want – Windows 10 mobile, Windows Phone, I’m angry at how easily Microsoft let their lead slip. I’m annoyed at how slowly they realised. I’m frustrated at how they treated the …

Windows Phone losing market share

The promised upgrade of all Lumia handsets to Windows 10 mobile hasn’t quite happened and Microsoft isn’t making a big song and dance about newly released handsets either. Things aren’t looking too great for the Microsoft mobile OS. However, Windows 10 mobile is available and, when these Kantar …

Gartner reports another slide for Windows Phone

Figures released by Gartner make for yet more uncomfortable reading if you are involved in Windows Phone. The share of the smartphone market has now dropped to just 1.7%. The figures are for Q3 and compare to a 3% share from the same period a year ago. According …

Windows Phone jumps a percentage point in latest figure

Canalys have released their latest figures and, according to their stats, 998 million smartphones were shipped in 2013. Year-on-year that’s a 44% increase and pretty much matches the numbers that came from IDC but here it’s the breakdown that’s interesting. Microsoft saw their Windows Phone platform gain one …

Nokia sales dive at the busiest time of year

In just a few days Nokia will be having a big launch event at Mobile World Congress for, we assume, their new Lumia. We’ll be there live to bring you all the latest, so don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to get your fix. But before that, …

Nokia release disappointing results

I’m not a Nokia fan boy but I really like the new Lumia device’s and windows phone operating system. I thought, along with loads of other people, that this combination (plus being bought by Microsoft) would signal the beginning of a turnaround for the ailing company. Today Nokia …

HTC quarterly figures are out. Still a little uncomfortable

Back in September HTC decided to off-load their remaining shares in Beats. The action, which effectively ended their partnership with the company, brought in some much-needed cash and has meant that HTC narrowly avoided a second quarterly loss. HTC reported their 2013 Q4 figures and made a net …

HTC continue to slide as Samsung posts record profits

It really shouldn’t be happening. HTC make great handsets. The HTC One is, quite simply, brilliant. The HTC One mini is great too, but the Samsung steam-roller has blasted the opposition away with sexy phones and an advertising budget that would make a lottery winner feel poor. This …

Has Windows Phone turned a corner?

Yesterday a lot of people picked up on the fact that Windows Phone was hitting a 9.2% sales share across five major European markets. Those five markets? Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Wehay! Surely it’s time to party, yes? It must be. Here in Great Britain …

HTC warns of possible operating loss

Operating loss.. what’s that then? Well, if you’re not into your economics this might not mean a great deal. Put simply it’s the point at which a company’s operating expenses exceed its income. This is what could well happen at HTC very soon. They’ve today warned that Q3 …

Windows Phone loses ground again

ComScore figures for January 2013 are now available and it seems that Apple are gaining ground. Meanwhile Android (named as “Google” above), has always increased share in these numbers, but dropped to a 52.3% share from a 53.6% share of American smartphone subscribers. Although Android are still in …
