Weekly Goat Report - Platform Wars (12/5/14)

Apple lost yet another iOS-Android mobile device battle this week, losing a narrow 0.02 percent of the market share among pMD's charge capture users. This marks the fifth week in a row that Apple has lost a slice of the pie to Android, losing 0.39 percent over that time period. A rumor has surfaced that Apple is planning to release a smaller 4" iPhone next year, breaking the bigger-is-better trend. The source of this rumor is sketchy at best, but if it pans out we'll be eagerly waiting to see how it will affect the mobile device market for health care providers!
