AT&T fights back at U.S. challenge of T-Mobile deal
The margin per mobile device for Samsung is very minute compared to Apple for example. How many extra devices do they have to sell to cover R&D and new product development. You might be impressed with Samsung and be very anti Apple but who has the balance sheet and loyalty. Certainly not Samsung. If they take a hit on patents, they will be in serious trouble as they cannot churn their financial facilities just by selling TV's. It is a very dangerous strategy for them.
Duel, 09 Sep 2011iPhone won customer satisfaction again! sixth? time a row! What i have seen apple has won all ... moreRemember the other survey where large number of iphone4 owners actually thought their phone was a 4G device?
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2011shippments are basically doing according to the demands in handsets Yeah! Demand from retailers not buyers or users. Buyers know wat they want and not even statistics can change that. Besides this is smart phones only not all combined
May i point out at this time that smart phone shipment is not smart phone sales. Samsung may just hav a large bulk of their phones laying idel in ware houses or dust in front of show stands due to outragious price. Nokia may not ship that many phones but will sale more. Nokia is king of smartphone sale due to their affodable price and build quality
Duel, 09 Sep 2011iPhone won customer satisfaction again! sixth? time a row! What i have seen apple has won all ... moreThat's just because apple customers don't expect much from their devices. They're ignorant of the latest technology. Everybody knows that apple customers are "Hi, I don't know a shit about technology but I wanna show off that I have a lot of money so I can be considered as cool." stupid, apart from 'em ofc!
I think you inadvertently stated that Nokia is still at top when smartphones and feature phones get combined. By looking at the table, Nokia was at top in 2010 with 37% share. Currently (in 2011) Samsung is at top with 33% share.
Duel, 09 Sep 2011iPhone won customer satisfaction again! sixth? time a row! What i have seen apple has won all ... moreHater... you know there is a big difference between making a survey that include less than 7000 smartphone users in US and BIG FACTS which is globally measured in millions of phones
The vision is in Apple. There is no doubt... it brought the tech revolution we are living in.
Now HTC,Samsung and Nokia (what a great disappointment this one) please wait for the iPhone 5.... and then start copying and reverse engineering... stay in line pls :). Then you have 1 more year to copy it... and produce 100+ phones until the iPhone 6 comes out.
Apple from 2007 - 2011 -> 5 models (FIVE!!!) (One PER year!!!)
And the rest???? 20?50?70? in 1 year???? lol
Now the chart does make sense, choke on it NOKIA... don't forget to send thank you card to Symbian loollll
iPhone won customer satisfaction again! sixth? time a row! What i have seen apple has won all of those.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2011apple fanboys actually think they're number one, lmao
iphone 5 isn't even gonna be released... moreJust remember market at Europe is quite different to the USA, and the major consumers are indeed in Americas.
However this not take any merit to Samsung :D Cheers!!!
`However, the Finnish company is still the top mobile phone vendor in Western Europe, when smartphones and feature phones get combined, with 37% market share`
Yes, BUT that is in 2010! Please correct!
