Depends on whether NZ follows the US I guess. Latest Comscore figures for the US here. The US mobile providers tend to be slow in releasing latest Android models though, for example the SGS2 hasn't been out all that long there, so difficult to compare exactly.

Edit: Added link

OK from http://blog.jericho.co.nz/new-zealand-smartphone-penetration/

Of the over 4.5 m phones in market, it?s estimated:
800,000 are smartphones

250,000 are iPhone/iPad
150,000 are Android

Leaving 400,000 or so as Blackberry, Windows and Symbian (Nokia N series etc). Clearly this will continue to switch as phones are upgraded and new models launch clouding things further - such as Nokia's new Windows phone.

http://www.nbr.co.nz/article/big-increase-mobile-internet-stats-nz-ck-102449

the figures in the above link from NBR based on Stats NZ show there were 1.9 million people using mobile phones to access internet, maybe the definition of 'Smartphone'is the difference but be interested in how they would "estimate "the breakdown of the users as one would think Apple would be very guarded over that.

Samsung (custom)  KITKAT 4.4.2 

Galaxy Gear 2  Smart watch (great gadget )

Hard to compare past numbers, and hard to know how many past sales are in use now. Apple had the head start by 18 months (Jan 2007 vs Oct 2008) over the first Android phone, the HTC Dream, so had momentum. Plus whatever delay there was for NZ releases.


Now that both are well recognised and that both are household names, sales this year would be a better guide, and also to see how WP7 moves into what I expect will be the "big 3" next year.

I'd expect Android to be well ahead in 2012 sales in NZ.

Due clearly to the wide range of phones available, and at all price points. Thats the only reason! :-)

I feel that the days of iOS vs Android need to be reclassified as iOS vs Android vs Windows Phone. They are the big 3 now. And as WP is new, past history is not relevant, monthly sales share/volume is what will be the intersting watch, Ideally if that could be at price point ranges to give a true view of demand for like devices.

Android will still dominate in overall volume due to the full range of budget to top end devices, as the other two are more high mid to high range.
