Millennial Media released its Mobile Mix report for January, looking at trends for connected devices, mobile manufacturers, operating systems, and apps. "Last month we saw significant OS and Manufacturer growth on our network," a representative for the firm tells WebProNews. "iOS outpaced all other operating systems experiencing a 47% increase month-over-month. HTC claimed the number two spot on our Top Manufacturers ranking and is quickly closing the gap with Apple for the top manufacturer spot."

Millennial Media also found that HTC grew 36% in January to claim the number two position in the Top 15 Manufacturers Ranking. "This growth is tied to the significant number of HTC devices in the Top 30 Mobile Device Ranking," the firm says.
