Vuclip Releases Global Mobile Devices Rankings for Q4 2012

Vuclip Releases Global Mobile Devices Rankings for Q4 2012 
Samsung's Galaxy S III Makes the Greatest Gains; iPhone Continues to
Hold Leadership Spot 
MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 --  Global interest is
bubbling up for the Samsung Galaxy S III, even as BlackBerry retains
a strong hold on much of the global mobile handset market. This is
according to Vuclip's Global Devices Ranking Q4 2012 published in its
January 2013 Global Video Insights report.  
At the top of the Q4 2012 Global Mobile Devices Rankings, there were
no notable changes, with the iPhone remaining dominant. Further down
the list, the quarter saw the continued growth of Android under
Samsung, led by the Samsung Galaxy S III, which leapt 18 places in
just three months. Feature phones continued to slide, while Samsung's
low-end Android handsets, the Galaxy Y and Galaxy Ace, moved up the
list with modest strength. There was one bright spot in Nokia's line.
The Nokia E72 rose five spots against expectations. This was not a
rally for Symbian as a whole, however, as the newer Nokia 5233 shed
ten spots. This may indicate that the utilitarian hardware features
of the older E72 have a lasting appeal that the conventional
touchscreen 5233 lacks. 
Here are the top 10 devices, ranked by video views, globally:
