During January-March 2012 Nokia was the leader when it came to top mobile brands in India for handsets with a market share of 23 percent. Samsung was in the second position with a 14.1 percent possession of the market and Micromax, an Indian brand, was in the third position with a market share of 5.8 percent. But now the scenario has changed. Samsung has acquired the largest lead when it comes to cellphone sales closely followed by the Indian brand Micromax.

Data provided by CyberMedia Research India states that the sale of mobile phones has surpassed 50 million during January-March 2012, which is 9.1 percent more than the corresponding period from 2011. Smartphones comprise 5.3 percent of phones sold in this time and they also account for almost 25 percent of the aggregate revenue earned from selling mobile handsets in India.

Multi-sim handsets have been preferred by Indians, as is evident from the latest trends, and have accounted for almost 66.67 percent of the aggregate sales. 3G handsets have accounted for less than 10 percent of the aggregate sales as per CyberMedia in this period.

Google Maps has long been the gold standard of free GPS apps , and its latest incarnation is no different. It beats the pants off Apple Maps , and performs better than MapQuest and Waze . It's full of features: you can get walking, driving, bicycling, and public transit directions, and its maps are more accurate than most. Add to that offline access to maps and a new night mode for iOS, and you have a star. Google Maps remains our Editors' Choice for GPS apps.

Interface and Points of Interest
The iPhone version of Google Maps is very similar to the Android  and desktop versions, and you can access most settings directly from the app, rather than going into the phone's general settings, as you must with Apple Maps. You can choose between several map views: traffic, public transit, biking, satellite, terrain, or Google Earth. Other settings include notifications, distance units, voice search, and languages, multitudes of which are available. I also like that you can adjust the voice guidance volume separately: softer, normal, or louder. You can also play voice prompts over Bluetooth if you want to use your car's speaker.

A number of shortcuts are available. You can save your home and work address, as well as your favorite destinations. If logged in on your desktop or other device, you can see recent searches on all platforms. If you enable notifications, you can use the Send to Phone feature to share directions from your computer, which is handy.
