Apple: 4% Market Share In Handsets But 52% of Industry’s Overall Profits!

November 4, 2011 6:20 pm

We spotted this today:

“With the iPhone, Apple is doing to the smartphone business what it has done to the PC business with the Mac: Generating a disproportionate share of profits relative to revenue.

In its third quarter, Apple captured more than half of the handset industry’s overall operating profits — 52 percent, according to Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley. And it managed it with only a 4.2 percent global handset unit market share.”
