If you’ve been keeping up with the news, it’s no surprise where Apple stands with the iPhone. It has been losing some market share to Android, Google’s rapidly growing operating system, but the iPhone is still special. The infographic above just shows where it stands in the U.S., and globally. Poor little Steve Jobs is just getting rained on by Nokia, the global leader, and Samsung and LG. But that’s now all!
Surprise! Apple dominates all of them, RIM’s BlackBerry included, in terms of value share. That’s right – despite it’s relatively smaller presence in the world, Apple owns Nokia, Samsung, LG and BlackBerry combined in terms of revenue for smartphones. Impressive, eh?
When it comes to market share, it seems that the numbers don’t mean a whole lot in terms of profitability.
