iPhone 5S tops in sales, but Android flagships are coming

Sluggish Android device sales have led the iPhone 5S to sell better than expected, according to some analysts. The flagship iOS device is tops in US sales, and leads the way in various other countries it’s available in as well. Taking advantage of a lull in Android flagship energy, Apple’s reign may not last long.

Gartner: device shipments to hit nearly 2 billion in 2014

Gartner has released a new study today, and they’re forecasting big mobile phone and tablet shipments for 2014. They believe that at the end of 2014, OEMs around the globe will have shipped 1.895 billion devices, a 4.6% increase over 2013. According to them, lower-end and mid-range devices are the reason for the bump, as well as expanding emerging markets. Oddly enough, these are similar gains as to those they noted in 2013.

Aside from needing that distinction, there is also the difference between analyst reports and numbers direct from the manufacturer.

Moto X sales tipped to have been weak

Motorola will be announcing the Moto G shortly. The handset is expected to be a lower-cost alternative to the Moto X.

But with all this Moto X news, a new report coming from the Wall Street Journal brings talk of poor sales.

Qualcomm Q3 2013 earnings show record numbers, again

If you're the proud owner of almost any flagship smartphone from the past year, it's likely running a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor under that HD display.
