11:56 EDTGOOG, AAPLIDC: Google's Android OS had 78.1% share in Q4, Apple's iOS had 17.6%
IDC said: "The smartphone market passed an important milestone in 2013 when worldwide shipments surpassed the 1 billion mark for the first time, driven by continued momentum from Android and iOS. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, Android and iOS accounted for 95.7% of all smartphone shipments in the fourth quarter of 2013 (4Q13), and for 93.8% of all smartphone shipments for the year. This marked a 4.5-point increase from the 91.2% share that the two platforms shared in 4Q12, and a 6.1-point increase from the 87.7% share they had in 2012."..."Android finished the year where it began: as the clear leader in the smartphone operating system race. Samsung led all Android vendors with a commanding 39.5% share of shipments for the year. Worth watching is a crowded list of vendors jockeying for position in 2014, including Huawei, LG, Lenovo, Coolpad, and Sony. Should Lenovo's bid to acquire Motorola Mobility be realized, the new company will leap ahead of Huawei, which was the number 2 Android vendor in 2013." Reference Link

08:24 EDTGOOGSchneiderman, Gascon applaud Google for 'kill switch' incorporation
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon issued the following statement on the release of Google’s new version of Android software, which will incorporate theft deterrent technology for the first time. Both Schneiderman and Gascon said, “We applaud Google for including a ‘kill switch’ solution in its new version of Android. The majority of smartphone owners now have access to an theft-deterrent solution. Through the work of the Secure Our Smartphones Initiative in concert with the smartphone industry, we are well on our way to safeguarding our loved ones from opportunistic thieves. But in order for these theft deterrents to effectively end the epidemic, they must be enabled by default so violent criminals lack the incentive to steal any smartphone. We will continue to encourage every actor in the smartphone industry, including Google, to take the necessary, additional step of ensuring this technology is opt-out on all devices.” Reference Link

07:48 EDTAAPLSony must decide quickly what to do with smartphone strategy, Nikkei says
Sony's (SNE) "One Sony" strategy is built around providing contents to consumers and smartphones are one of three pillars it sees for growth, but the strategy is "on the brink of collapse" as the company falls behind Apple (AAPL) and Chinese rivals, according to the Nikkei Asian Review. Sony officials are debating whether smartphone operations in Asia should be downsized and whether cutting 1,000 jobs, or 15% of its mobile communications workforce, would be warranted, according to the report.
