45 Million smartphone users

AdMob has just published a report comparing smartphone platforms from November 2009 and February 2010. As expected, Android has shown the most growth, almost doubling its market share in 3 months (most likely thanks to the Moto DROID). Windows Mobile continues to lose share, and Palm is also showing signs of distress. The Blackberry and iPhone remain largely unchanged.

CompanionLink offers sync solutions for all five of the platforms mentioned. No matter what device you choose, you can rest assured that CompanionLink will help you sync your data from the desktop. More information about CompanionLink’s sync solutions can be found at www.companionlink.com.

From CNET:

“ChangeWave Research on Tuesday released the results of its week-long September survey of 4,255 consumers, which showed that RIM retains its lead in smartphone ownership with 40 percent market share. That’s actually a dip of 1 percentage point since the last survey in June, and the lowest share RIM has registered in two years.”

CompanionLink has custom apps for the iPhone and Palm webOS platforms.  These custom apps add business functionality above and beyond what the native apps on those platforms offer.

CompanionLink’s iPhone app (called iClink) adds a custom Calendar and Tasks module to the iPhone.  The custom Calendar allows business users to link their contacts to their calendar events.  It’s important for business users to not only see when a meeting or call is scheduled, but to also quickly read past notes about the person with whom the event is with.

CompanionLink’s Palm webOS app (called CL USB Sync) allows USB sync between the PC and Palm device.  It also adds a custom Tasks and Memos app that allows categories, priorities, and sort features.  These features cater to users who extensively use Tasks and Memos, and need a robust way to categorize them for quicker access and viewing.
