UX & User Research

Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team

Mobile

  • Android version distribution for end of February puts JellyBean at 62% of all active Android devices, Gingerbread at 19%, Ice Cream Sandwich at 15% and KitKat at 2%.
  • Microsoft is rumored to be dropping licensing fees for Windows Phone devices for select OEMs.
  • The Netherlands started to allow network agnostic SIM cards, which would allow users to change the network that their phone is connecting to as they desire. If implemented internationally, this could remove the need for roaming and multiple-SIM phones.
  • Google released Android Wear Developer Preview, a version of its operating system targeted at wearable devices. The SDK will be released later this year. One of the most promoted features is Google Now and the value proposition revolves around being contextually aware and smart, helpful and in need of minimal interaction. Motorola has announced a watch based on the Andtoid Wear that will launch in summer 2014.
  • Chrome introduced hands-free voice search.
  • Google and Facebook control 2/3 of the us mobile ad market, according to eMarketer. Between them, they control 66% of the ad revenues, followed by Twitter, Pandora and Yahoo. Google is on top with 46%, while Facebook has a 21% marketshare.
