How mobile technology has been grown up during last four years would be identified by the participation of mobile devices in the Olympics. Undoubtedly, the penetration of smartphone and Tablet has incredibly been augmented since Atlanta 1996 Olympics.

Back in 1994 Olympics, Motorola StarTAC was considered as the lightest phone ever, but the scenario little changed in Sydney 2000 Olympics, here text messaging was main center of attraction. During Sydney Olympics, 400,000 texts were sent each day in the U.S. In Athens 2004 Olympics, Motorola’s RAZR popularized the “clamshell” design and it became best selling clamshell Phone of the world. In Beijing 2004 Olympics, use of Wi-Fi access updates were at the zenith, but now, in London 2008 Olympics, Siri (Apple’s personal voice assistant application) provides Olympic enthusiasts to brush up on the sports knowledge from anywhere and anytime.

Until Beijing 2008 Olympic, 139.3 million Smartphones were sold by different vendors. Facebook and Twitter had just 100 million and 6 million users respectively till date. That time, Android had just 0.5% worldwide market share and iOS had 8.2%. But in London 2012 Olympics, there are 657 million Smartphone users, more than 900 million Facebook users and over 500 million Twitter users. Now, Android is leading with 56.1% market share followed by iOS with 22.9% global market share.
