Nielsen numbers match up pretty well with other statistical reports. The market is growing enough that Apple also increased its share, up to 28.3%. 44% of US mobile users now own a smartphone of one kind or another.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N that Samsung released in Germany specifically to avoid Apple's lawsuits didn't manage to escape. Samsung has been under some heavy attack in Germany, Australia and other parts of the world for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 because Apple claims it infringes on their patents and design. Today Apple seeks another injunction on the new Tab 10.1N and a court date has been set.
first glance at the new Archos G9 series a few months back featuring a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor and Android Honeycomb. Today they've released the same devices only with the addition of "Turbo" to the name with a faster 1.2 GHz TI OMAP dual-core processor.
iFixit fashion today they've been nice enough to share the details on the innards of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus flagship Android smartphone. Like they always do, today they've tore it down and they give us a look at every little piece inside this new device. Plenty of pictures are available after the break. I'm just sad I don't have one yet while they are shredding it to pieces already.
woot.com has the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi 16GB model on sale for a mere $319.99 ($180) off retail price. It doesn't have a quad-core like I mentioned and it does happen to be a refurbished unit but that shouldn't hold anyone back looking for a great deal that missed those Black Friday sales.
review units of the Galaxy Nexus couldn't access Adobe Flash on the Android Market. It turns out that this had nothing to do with Adobe's unceremonious drop of mobile Flash, but rather the fact that the current application simply needed an update to support either the Galaxy Nexus or Ice Cream Sandwich. According to Adobe's official Flash blog, both Flash and AIR will be updated sometime next month in order to support the Galaxy Nexus.
DigiTimes is quoting OEM suppliers, confirming that all the major Android tablet manufacturers will have their own quad-core Tegra machines in the future. Specifics are hard to come by, but we already know that both Lenovo and HTC are hard at work on their new models. Samsung is prepping its own new tablets, likely updating its extensive range with next-generation Exynos chips. According to DigiTimes, Acer and Lenovo's offerings will fall between $459 and $599, hitting pretty close to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime's $499-599 range. Look for Acer to undercut its competitors by a considerable margin, as they like to play the bargain angle. Lenovo's latest tablets, the 5, 7 and 10-inch s2005, s2007 and s2010, respectively, and Acer's A200 is making the rounds, but none of these devices are expected to bow with Tegra 3 chips. Lenovo's K2 tablet, however, has already been benchmarked with its Nvidia hardware, and may even come with a jaw-dropping 1920 x 1200 10-inch display panel.The Acer A700/A701 may have the same beastly resolution when it comes in, also using a Tegra 3. The power of the new architecture is hard to deny - just check out the latest demo from Nvidia. The Android tablet world is going to heat up in the next few months, and we can't wait to see what kind of new hardware is on display at CES in January.
