Apple Makes 50 Percent of Handset Industry ProfitsJuly 9, 2011 12:02 am
We spotted this today:
“In less than four years, Apple went from not making a dime on handset sales to commanding approximately half of the industry’s profits, and is now poised to set the bar even higher by shipping 100 million iPhones over a 12-month span, financial experts say.
Although smartphones running Google’s Android OS continue to gain share of total smartphone units sold, when it comes to profits, Apple remains the undisputed king, raking in roughy 50% of the entire handset industry’s net earnings during the first quarter of 2011, according to Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley.”
