Those PC guys aren’t just going to wa.. oh.
Is RIMM supposed to be RIM? Come on folks.
I’m sure that Apple is doing quite well, but there seem to be a few things about this chart that are off.
1) Are these numbers for the US, or international? Some of these companies are significantly better off in foreign markets than the US, while the iPhone will probably never crack the Asian or European markets effectively.
2) Are we taking Apple as an aggregate or Apple solely as a cellphone maker?
3) Where is the 32% coming from? From what I can tell, they just added the operating profit of cell phone manufacturers together and divided Apple’s into that. That’s a really crude (and probably incorrect) way of trying to calculate profit share.
Yeah, and where’s HTC? You can’t tell me they don’t fit somewhere on here.
