Handango releases mobile download stats and best sellers for March 2005
Posted on 15-Apr-2005 09:23 | Tags Filed under: News



Handango is releasing the March 2005 edition of the Handango Yardstick, a monthly report on the state of the mobile download industry.

For the first time, the Handango Yardstick reports the top devices adding software by revenue in addition to units sold. This new addition ranks the Sony Ericsson P900/P910 as the number one phone adding software by revenue, dethroning the palmOne Treo 600/650. Another highlight was the addition of the Nokia 9500 and Nokia 6600/6620 to the list of top five phones adding software by revenue. With regards to handhelds, the palmOne Tungsten T Series remained in the number one spot for both revenue and units sold while the Dell Axim X3 Series and palmOne Tungsten E landed at the number two and three slots, respectively.

After hitting a record low in December 2004, the average selling price (ASP) of mobile software applications climbed for the third month in a row, reaching a record high of US$20.59 in March, up from US$20.47 in February. The ASP of applications in the games and entertainment categories also showed significant price increases. The games category jumped from US$13.07 in February to a record high of $14.36 in March, while the entertainment category rose from US$18.54 to US$19.40.

The list of top ten search terms also had a newcomer this month. Due to the product launch and upgrade of Microsoft Voice Command for the U.S, U.K., France and Germany, the customer search term "voice/voice command" ranked number eight on the list, pushing "MSN/messenger" from the top ten.
