Samsung vs Apple in China

Noteworthy piece in the UK’s Telegraph about a Gartner report on Samsung’s market share that is triple Apple’s in China and is still increasing. The iPhone currently accounts for 7.5 per cent of the Chinese market, compared to 24.3 per cent for Samsung.

The iPhone is not yet compatible with the largest mobile network, China Mobile, in the world’s fastest expanding market.

Apple ‘can’t catch Samsung in China’

Google on location

If you use Google on a mobile device you might find that the search suggestion list makes provision for your location.

The search suggestion list is the terms that appear below the text entry field on Google.

For example:

If you are in London and are looking for a sushi restaurant, first on the search suggestion list will be something like “sushi restaurants in london”.

Across the channel in Paris the same query will have as a first suggestion “sushi restaurants in paris”.

This new mobile functionality will currently only work on iPhones and Android-powered devices.
