Android tablets have nearly caught up to iPad devices as the world’s most popular tablet platform, and some project that they may even overtake iPads later this year. According to new research from app analytics company Localytics, the U.S., and specifically Amazon, should take the most credit for that trend: some 59% of all Android tablet usage came from the U.S., with over half of that attributed to Kinde Fire and Fire HD tablets, working out to a 33% share.
The numbers are based on usage of apps with Localytics analysis and marketing data installed on them. Localytics says that in total there are 500 million+ unique devices running that software.
The U.S. is Amazon’s first and main market for the Kindle Fire, with Amazon only rolling out the tablets to other markets towards the end of 2012, around a year after launching in the U.S. Some 89% of Amazon’s tablets “live in America, with most of the rest in Great Britain,” writes Localytics’ Daniel Ruby. “After those two, no other country has even one percent of worldwide Kindle Fires.”
Localytics notes that if Amazon manages to work out its international distribution, then “their U.S. success suggests they could quickly dominate the Android tablet market worldwide.” Indeed, Amazon has stolen a march on traditional competitors like Barnes & Noble, whose Android-based Nook has only 10% of the market in the U.S., and even less than Amazon outside of there.
But today, Amazon is far from a global player with the Fire. In the rest of the world, the Android tablet game is Samsung’s to lose. Ruby tells me that the Korean device maker’s Galaxy line accounts for 76% of all Android tablet usage. Nexus 7 came in second at 15%, and Kindle Fire’s global share shrunk down to just 9%.
Because the Fire is built on a “forked” version of Android, the Google Play app storefront doesn’t appear on it: and that spells an opportunity for Amazon in its push to offer more cloud-based services to developers — something it is doing more by extending payment services and possibly adding in the ability to incorporate a voice API for voice recognition services.
Figures from ABI Research in November 2012 noted that in the last quarter, iPad devices accounted for 55% of sales, while Android tablets accounted for 44%.

Google and LG ’ s Nexus 4 has been such a desirable item this past vacation period, that it ’ s been in and out of stock since its release in mid-November. Due to the fact that Google doesn ’ t openly comment on device sales, it ’ s been hard to understand exactly how much OEM partner LG produced for the gadget ’ s initial launch.
However, a little sleuthing by some Android lovers and Nexus 4 owners recommends that LG produced about 400,000 gadgets going into the end of last year.
How did they do it? They ’ ve taken the IMEI numbers of their phones and backtracked the manufacturing many their gadgets making use of an LG mobile link that ’ s usually utilized for discovering brand-new firmware. An IMEI number, or International Mobile Station Devices Identification number, is normally printed on the battery compartment of the inside of the phone. It can be utilized to prevent stolen phones from accessing a network.
If you take this link and place your IMEI number at the very end, this LG website will spit back out the IMEI followed by a long string of characters that looks something like this: “ LGE960 ACAGBK 212KPHG188745 20121206 GLOBAL/GLOBAL N N ”
If you break this string apart, you get:
LGE960 = phone design
CA = Nation where the gadget was offered. (Others consist of ‘ United States ’ for the UNITED STATE, ‘ HK ’ for Hong Kong, ‘ AU ’ for Australia and so on.)
G = Storage space (G = 16GB, 8 = 8GB)
BK = Color
12 = Production Month (November)
K = Manufacturing Country (Korea)
188745 = The line or manufacturing number, showing that phone was the 188,745 th device made.
2012121206 = The manufacturing date in YYYYMMDD format
A number of Nexus 4 owners have been sharing and putting together the manufacturing numbers day by day (see below). It suggests that LG made about 70,000 gadgets in October, 90,000 in November and 210,000 in December. Google decreased to comment on these numbers.
Still, they ’ re interesting for a couple reasons. It appears that Google and LG have been conservative with the Nexus 4 launch. LG has formerly stated that the Nexus 4 “ had proven extremely popular, and as such retailers have actually been met big demand. ” Google ’ s U.K. and Ireland handling director Dan Cobley similarly has actually stated there have actually been communication issues on both ends with managing supply for the Nexus 4.
Keeping supplies tight have actually made the Nexus 4 debut a world apart from the launch of the original HTC-manufactured Nexus One back in 2010.

Local police in the urban area of Mildura, Australia, have been forced to alert motorists of the inaccuracies consisted of within Apple’s Maps app for iOS 6. Maps listings Mildura in the middle of Murray Sunset National forest, about 70km far from where it should be, and the authorities have had to rescue drivers that ended up in the incorrect place– some stranded without food or water for 24 hours. Others were obliged to walk “long distances with unsafe terrain” in order to get phone reception; since temperatures could reach up to 46 & deg; Celsius (115 & deg; Fahrenheit), the police have actually called it a “possibly deadly concern.”
The shortcomings of Apple Maps are well-documented, and it’s definitely not the very first time mapping options have triggered …

Apple ’ s iOS 6 doesn ’ t appear to be doing the business any favors when it concerns user satisfaction, according to a brand-new survey performed by mobile client analysis firm On Device. The survey of simply under 16,000 iPhone owners in the UNITED STATE found that compared with iOS 5, those with iOS 6 were somewhat less completely satisfied with their units. The drop is little, but still popular since On Unit states this is the very first time it ’ s seeing a drop in total satisfaction.
“ We have actually always seen a boost in gadget fulfillment as individual update their mobile os from one variation to yet another, ” On Gadget CEO Alistair Hill described in an emailed statement, adding that that ’ s also typically been the instance amongst Android OS versions. The company takes note that specifically contrasted to the jump between iOS 4 and iOS 5, which shows durable enhancements, the drop from iOS 5 to iOS 6 seems especially uncommon.
Customers have actually not responded well to the replacement of Google Maps with Apple ’ s own mobile maps providing, which appears to be the major source of a great deal of irritation. That ’ s likely the issue that ’ s resulted in much of the discontentment seen in the On Gadget study, since aside from some problems with exactly how the App Store now displays search results, I ’ ve seen few other problems.
It ’ s also worth mentioning that regardless of a slight decrease in contentment vs. iOS 5, usually satisfaction is still very high general, and Apple still seems to have a great lead on Android devices, according to a current study by J.D. Power. In additional words, while iOS 6 could have some discouraging functions, evaluating by these results it looks unlikely to have a material result on iOS device sales going forward.
Apple ’ s iPhone has actually had its crime-fighting abilities detailed previously, however a brand-new story today out of Atlanta (through the Atlanta Journal-Constitution) has its Locate My iPhone feature assisting to catch two suspects in an armed theft case. After 5 women were held up at gunpoint near the Biltmore Hotel last evening in the Georgia state capital, police tracked one of their stolen iPhones to an apartment and nabbed the suspects.
A tipster tells us that police made use of Find My iPhone, the service that Apple provides to iCloud users who also own iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, and iPad hardware, to track the unit. Discover My iPhone has helped in arrests a number of times in the past, including in an armed robbery case stated by the L.A. Times last November.
The suspects in the situation were both on probation when they were arrested, and police state the investigation is recurring and others could still be included. Discover My iPhone actually has even more helpful attributes in shop in iOS 6, consisting of a technique for tracking a gadget ’ s improvement and marking its course on a map, so you don ’ t simply see where it is, but also where it has been because it left your possession, which can theoretically help authorities create a timeline of events in cases like this one.
Hampture underwater colony established for science, leads the way for future hamster space exploration
Animals have had a rough time of it, when it comes to scientific exploration. Look no further than Laika, the first animal to orbit Earth, soon to become a the first animal to die in orbit, not too long after achieving that earlier distinction. The dwarf hamsters that occupy Hampture seem to be considerably happier in their own scientific explorations than the Soviet mutt, at the moment. Bob Averill brought the project to our attention last week on our visit to Portland, Oregon. According to the official blog, the project is an attempt to “learn firsthand what is involved in designing and constructing a complete underwater habitat capable of sustaining complex organisms.” It also may well be a gateway to sending the hamsternauts into space via Skystation Mk1. Averill is also looking to turn Hampture into a salable product, though Kickstarter, for one, has apparently balked at the idea. In the meantime, you can check out a streaming feed of the habitat after the break and read up on the making of the project in the source links below.
Online security issues are usually no less severe than losing your Diablo III loot, however here’s a much more corporeal example: a house in Australia has been broken into in direct response to a photograph of “a large sum of cash” being posted to a 17-year-old girl’s Facebook account. The teenager was assisting her grandmother in counting her savings and snapped a photo of the money all piled up, which she shared to her Facebook account around 4PM local time on Thursday. At about 11:30PM the same day, a pair of masked men forced their way into her mother’s home — likely the address the girl had listed on her Facebook profile — demanding the money they saw on her social page. After rifling through the home sufficiently to be…
