and the winner is…Samsung

Figures released today in UK shows that sales of Samsung handsets have passed Apple to own more of the market in Q3, which runs from July-September.

 

Samsung now own 23.8% of the market to Apple’s 14.6% and in third place in Nokia with 14.4%  of the market. In Q3 Samsung sold 27.8 million units compared to Apple’s 17.1 million units.

 

With all these handsets out Proporta has it covered (literally) with our extensive ranges of cases and accessories for both the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Apple iPhone 4S as well as older models as well.

 

In the office today we have run a quick questionnaire into which mobile phones each us have, the findings look slightly biased however it’s a great range.

 

BlackBerry Curve – one
BlackBerry Torch  – one
BlackBerry Bold 2 – one
iPhone 3GS  – one
iPhone 4 – four
iPhone 4S  – One
HTC Desire HD – one
HTC Google Nexus 1 – one
HTC Desire S – one
HTC Wildfire – one
Samsung Galaxy Ace – one
Samsung Google Nexus S – one
Other – two

Pretty interesting don’t you think?

 

Already in Q4 the battle to be the best selling handset will really hot up, with Christmas round the corner who is going to win….?

 

here’s a sneak peek at Spreaker…

 

Here’s a sneak peek at another new app before it goes into the App Store. Spreaker, which is a very streamlined app that does for audio what Twitter does for text and YouTube does for video — makes it extremely easy to share content across social networks.

With Spreaker, you can broadcast live radio right from your mobile.  Anyone can create content and broadcast it instantly to one’s Facebook page, or listen later as a podcast. In addition to being a cool app, Spreaker also boasts a robust backend website that allows you to do much more interesting and fun things, like adding studio sound effects and background music to your productions.

An adhoc version of the app for iPhone is available for download from TestFlight here and it’ll be in the App Store next week, and on Android immediately thereafter.

Promo video here – have a look.

 

 

This will be the next big thing, watch out facebook and twitter…there’s a new sheriff in town.

Other nominees for the Best Mobile Accessory included Orange’s Sound Charge T-Shirt, the Wacom Bamboo Stylus and the Griffin Beacon, but the winner was (drumroll please), the Proporta USB TurboCharger 5000. Thank you very much Recombu!

This ridiculously handy product allows you to recharge your mobile devices on the move again and again. It features one Mini USB input port and two USB output ports. This allows the option of charging two devices simultaneously. Simply plug any USB/micro USB powered gadget (including your Apple iPad, iPhone 4/3G S/ 3G, Apple iPod, BlackBerry, most digital cameras, GPS units and mobile phones) into the USB TurboCharger’s standard USB port and it’ll keep even the most power hungry devices juiced up and ready to go.

At this time of year the evenings are getting shorter, and the cold weather seems to start biting at your fingertips and toes.  At this time some of us start wrapping up for the cold months ahead.

However for many of us the main thing about October is Halloween. A chance to have a party and play games, or to go trick or treating with the kids, but most importantly dressing up in your most scary costume and at Proporta we are no different.

 

This month Proporta are running an Apple Bobbing Competition where one lucky winner will win the main prize of an Apple 4G iPod touch. But not to worry 30 lucky runners-up will also win a selection of Proporta goodies.
