Apple and Samsung made 55% of smartphone shipments in Q1 2012
It was only a month ago when we told you that Apple and Samsung share 99% of all profits in the market for mobile phones. Today we have a new report for you, which breaks down the smartphone segment in a similar fashion and, unsurprisingly, the numbers are again favorable for the two rivaling giants.

All in all, it looks like the second half of this year will be more than interesting. Hit the source link for more curious numbers and feel free to tell us about your predictions in the comments section.
