It’s Nielsen’s turn to post its report on the US smartphone market in the second quarter of this year. The numbers show that Android continues to dominate while iOS is a very solid second. The two platforms combine for a total of 86.2% of all smartphones in the States. In the second quarter of the year, Android powered 51.9% of US smartphones, while 34.3% ran on Apple’s proprietary iOS. RIM‘s faltering BlackBerry OS came a very distant third, taking 8% of the Stateside smartphone market . The gaps are even more pronounced among recent acquirers. Of all the US citizens who bought a smartphone over the past three months, a whopping 58.6% chose Android and another 33.0% went for iOS. The trend is understandable, given that the iOS flagship – iPhone 4Swas already nine-months old at the end of that quarter, while the Android-powered One X had just made it to the market.

Industrialisation imperative for job creation

THE high job creation profile of the manufacturing sector may have informed the ongoing resuscitation of industrial estates in Anambra State, which Governor Peter Obi described as his administration’s priority.

Speaking while inspecting Kriscol factory at the Harbor Industrial Layout, Ogbaru, recently, Obi noted that the manufacturing sector holds the key to a permanent solution to the challenges of unemployment in the country.

He explained that the state had keyed into President Jonathan’s vision of creating employment and had continued to encourage and empower industrialists in the state, adding that the president would commission some of the industries this month.

The governor expressed satisfaction that small and medium scale enterprises had been given access to credit facilities at less than ten per cent interest rate.

The Chairman of the company, Mr. Oranu Chidume said that they were involved in backward integration and called for collective decision and efforts by the people of the state to ensure continuity of good governance to avoid future regrets.

In another development, Obi disclosed that permanent measures had been taken to ensure that areas recovered from illegal structures were not encroached into in future.

Obi, who spoke while inspecting the Bridge Head end of the Onitsha-Enugu-Dual Carriage-Way recently, said that the step was part of measures taken to ensure that entrance into Onitsha, remained clean.
