Three ways to make a profit:
1. Lots of sheep!
2. Make a bazillion slightly different devices.
Good to see Nokia doing weel.Looks like going with windows was the right choice.Is so good and you can get loads of free apps and has loads of removable storage and very customisable.NOT!
jb, 04 May 2012im a nokia fan boy, but quite disapointed in nokia that they went with windows....
Elop is ki... moreSorry, Meego is Dead. Android is Shit.
Just try Lumia 900 for a week i bet you will embrace...
jb, 04 May 2012im a nokia fan boy, but quite disapointed in nokia that they went with windows.... Elop is ki... moreI agree - I feel sorry for you Nokia guys. The best days of the industry where when Nokia, Ericsson and Motorola were the only names in town. I blame excessive American influence in the market for killing it (Apple, Google, Microsoft I'm talking to you).
Andrea, 04 May 2012Apple killed the mobile phone market.
We have less healthy competitors than 5 years ago, a le... moreWell said - the mobile phone market is dull at the minute. It used to be that phone manufacturers would release a variety of interesting products and form factors - now it is just the same boring slabs were most will not dare to deviate from looking like an iPhone.
Even HTC are abandoning QWERTY. Apple must be opposed at all costs and no matter how good they are perceived ( they are crap IMO ) as Apple's monopolistic fashion brand is destroying the industry.
Thank God for Sony.
thats a big evidence that apple is selling nothing for hefty prices, nothing worth its value unlike others .
Just goes to show that people are stupid and the best products don't always sell. All you need is a reality distortion field, a pretentious attitude and a pathetic media willing to give you endless free advertising and hey presto: exploitative profits!
john, 04 May 2012waiting for nokia fanboys to say how things are changing with windows mobile 7.. or 8 or 9 or.....im a nokia fan boy, but quite disapointed in nokia that they went with windows....
Elop is killing nokia, i recon they should just go meego and symbian and maybe android too...
But they might still go android,
would be interesting to see.....
Anonymous, 04 May 2012No they just dont generate any profit since thenBase on this Article LG is making profits
Back too the topic this is bad if this continue, only 4 major brand will remain on the market , Apple, Samsung, HTC and LG
From my view, despite samsung sales are more than apple the apple is still the leader as they make more profit per phone they sell than samsung.. moreover i remember reading an article which says how apple is saving tax which is also an important part which has helped apple to be on top in terms of profit. I remember a point which says their product is manufactured and assembled in China and because of that they are saving an amount of tax to US.. but i doubt the same for samsung as it is done in the same country or neighbouring country.. so this can be the reason...
One thing missing on the graph the color of LG in the last quarter, where is LG? They only reported LG 2009 profits so LG is not a Mobile Company anymore?
SaltWater, 04 May 2012People be realistic!! You can't believe in everything your read!! I don't doubt Samsung and Ap... moreYour point could be valid.
However, leave aside the percentages, i have no doubt in believing that Apple makes more "profit" for the number of units they have sold.
Its known, stocks do rise and fall based on tips and rumours. i do not know the exact share price but according to your numbers 10% drop is acceptable considering that Apple did not introduce any great device this year. ( i am neglecting the new iPad, its neither upto apple's nor users expectations)
nokia ceo, 04 May 2012nokia will dominate with nextgen handsets,apple ,sammy will join in hellKepp dreaming buddy,keep on dreaming.even android makers Sony and motorolla couldnt get back to the top 5 postitions what makes you so sure that nokia will be able to claim back its spot.
Anonymous, 04 May 2012Proof that Apple products are more overpriced, than other brands.
73% profit when samsung is ... moreProof of samsung selling more cheap phones than theit flagship, of course if samsung sells over 50 million more phones than samsung it means they are selling cheap phone.
For example, Apple sold this year more iphone's than samsung their flagship ever. Of course Apple make lot more money if they sell only hi-end phones.
Ron, 04 May 2012actually it is true, touchwiz is by apple with inputs from sammyROn, Just being curious, can you please elaborate your point?
did apple acutally developed Touch wiz with inputs/guidelines from samsung? Did i get your point correctly.
If yes, please post any relevant link, i'd like to learn more about this
