Google grabbed the most global media attention of any company in 2013
Other names in the mobile industry include Microsoft, which was named 84,174 times. Sony finished the year with 46,468 mentions while Nokia had 29,935, RIM (now BlackBerry) tallied 29,638 and China Mobile managed 5,302.
Google's best month for publicity was May when it had 13,336 mentions in the global media, most likely due to Google I/O, which took place in that time period. Apple's press coverage peaked in September with 15,270 mentions in the global media, no doubt due to the widespread launch of the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c.

Keep in mind that Sony is a major multinational tech giant with a lot of nonmobile products
