The Samsung Galaxy S III was announced four months before the iPhone 5 and became available much earlier than Apple’s latest offering (about a trimester earlier) but it looks like the fruit-phone is already generating more data traffic less than three weeks after its release than Samsung’s Android flagship.
Mobile advertising network Chitika has released a report which states that the iPhone 5, despite being available much later, has taken the lead and is in front of the Galaxy S III in terms of data traffic. 56% goes to Apple’s iPhone 5 and 44% to Samsung’s Galaxy S III from all traffic generated by both devices. Chitika’s explains this phenomenon is due to the popularity of the iPhone 5 as well as the “new 4G browsing speeds which encourage data usage”.
The numbers were released after analyzing “millions of mobile ad impressions, spanning a 7-day time frame from October 3rd through October 9th, 2012″
