Coming to the mobile market we canțt exactly say there is a battle between the OS’s as it’s everyone’s choice which way to go. Where the line really seems to get thin it’s when it comes to the choice of size. Most users would want to replace their home PC with something lighter, portable and more easy to use.

Due to its its ad network covering 134 million mobile users in the U.S. and 206 million mobile users worldwide, we can be sure that the scenario they have put together might be a fairly accurate one and though surprising we can’t say it was not to be expected. The latest figures show that by the end of 2012, tablets accounted for 18% of all traffic on its network, compared to 78% for smartphones and 4% for feature phones.

When it comes to the OS of choice, based in the ad network’s claims Android seems to be the number one operating system, followed by iOS and the rest. As for the manufacturers Samsung was already accounting for 56% of all Android traffic on its network at the end of last year, and that figure will go past 60% this year. From the Jumptap report:

“Advertisers focusing on the Android market should assume that more than 50% of their ads will appear on Samsung smartphones, unless they specifically target other devices,”

    “Most users would want to replace their home PC with something lighter, portable and more easy to use.”

    I guess this is accurate if “most” users only want to play some less demanding games or just check email and surf the net. My Nexus 7 doesn’t replace my desktop but it is convenient for doing the above while I sit in the recliner . It’s more of a device that supplements my desktop by giving me convenient internet access pretty much anywhere with a WiFi connection.

    Ultrabooks with SSD’s boot quick and are light but for me still pose the same disadvantages of a regular laptop…too small a screen. Hard to go from a 24″ Dell Ultra Sharp to 13″no matter how good the screen is.
