Like in every developed country, the United Kingdom also sees major increases in the smartphone market. Studies have shown almost 72 per cent of adults now own a smartphone. 83 per cent of adults now use some kind of portable device to go online and nearly all of 16-24 and 25-34 year age group are always online. The desire to be at everywhere at times is insatiable it seems. Most big brands are available in the UK, but, what the people of the UK actually buys is the key thing here. Mobile technology has been around in the UK for a long time, but the revolution happened in 2007 when Apple introduced the iPhone to the world. It was the first proper smartphone the world had ever seen. Also the operating system used on smartphones plays a key role in the purchase decision. The most prominent operating system to date is the android by Goole, but Apples iOS is not that far behind, Also another notable operation system is the Blackberry. However the advent of android operated phones has somewhat diminished the blackberry’s popularity. But to former blackberry users switching over to some other operating system might not be that easy, if he/she has invested in the applications of that particular platform.
