told you last month. After a huge response from readers hoping for the game we have some bad news. Sadly after numerous rumors claimed February 9th was the official launch date we can now confirm that this hugely successful game is still coming soon, but not tomorrow.
Apple beating out Android in the latter half of 2011? The ones that half the internet jumped on as proof that Android was "falling behind"? Yeah, not so much. Despite a massive rise in iPhone sales in the fourth quarter, Android is still way out in front of the mobile landscape with 47.3 % market share, according to ComScore. Their number crunchers say that's a 2.5 point increase since Q3 2011. Apple continues to rise at a slower pace, capturing 29.6% of the total smartphone market in the US.
Crittercism says no. Based on data collected in November and December of last year, iOS apps crashed at a significantly higher rate than Android apps - more than three times as much for top selling apps. Don't panic, Apple faithful, just keep repeating this soothing chant to yourself: "It just works."
according to Nielsen. While 62% of first-time smartphone buyers chose Android in October, by December only 47% did.
Pocket Lint, Nokia's director of Portfolio, Product Marketing & Sales Niels Munksgaard claimed that Android phones don't sit well with young people on account of its complexity. He went on to say that they don't want the iPhone, because everyone already has one. I'll give you ten points if you can find the error in that statement.
Research firm NPD says that Android runs on 53% of the smartphones being used in the US. No other OS comes close, with iOS in a distant second at 29%. If mobile operating systems were horses, Android would lead by about two and a half lengths.
Sega's blue hedgehog is post-Dreamcast, you can stop reading now - this story isn't for you. If, however, you've been patiently awaiting the Android arrival of one of the most celebrated 2D platformers of all time, prepare to be disappointed. Though the Sega CD classic Sonic CD will see a release on the iPhone tomorrow, December 14th, it won't be hitting Android until early next year. We'd blame Dr. Robotnik, but you'd think that he'd be on board with Android all the way. Android fans should be used to waiting by now (cough cough, Verizon).
