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.

Now, Android is leading with 56.1% market share followed by iOS with 22.9% global market share.
