Samsung PINK:SSNLF and Apple NASDAQ:AAPL
Research firm Gartner reports that sales of these devices fell 1.7% to 1.75-B in 2012. The SmartPhone end of the industry continues to do better.
SmartPhone , sales were 207.7-M in Q-4 of last year, or up 38.3%. No company has been able to approach Samsung PINK:SSNLF and Apple NASDAQ:AAPL in terms of global SmartPhone market share. The landscape did not improve for their competitors at the end of 2012. According to Gartner:
In Q-4 of Y 2012, Apple and Samsung together raised their worldwide SmartPhone market share to 52% from 46.4% in Q-3 of Y 2012.
Samsung finished the year in the # 1 spot, in both worldwide SmartPhone sales and overall mobile phone sales.
“There is no manufacturer that can firmly lay claim to the # 3 spot in global SmartPhone sales,” said Gartner “The success of Apple and Samsung is based on the strength of their brands as much as their actual products. Their direct competitors, including those with comparable products, struggle to achieve the same brand appreciation among consumers, who, in a tough economic environment, go for cheaper products over brand.”
