PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "In smartphones, it's not all about Apple and Samsung anymore. For several years, these two companies have dominated the mobile phone-making business, successively one-upping each other with ever sleeker, more technologically sophisticated iPhones and Galaxy handsets that left would-be rivals grasping. But now the competition is stirring, and consumers are giving another look to brands they once ignored." Not only is Samsung now more profitable in mobile than Apple (next goalpost please), smaller Android manufacturers, such as LG, ZTE, and Lenovo, are making huge inroads, and are raking in growing profits - in fact, these three now belong to the top 5 mobile device makers. The common parlance that only Samsung is making a profit off Android is simply no longer true.

Why leave "other" at 42%? It would be nice to see where Motorola, HTC, Nokia and others stand. I'm guessing ZTE and Lenovo sales must be mainly from China since they're practically non-existent in the US.

That's only a matter of time too imo. Lenovo is an excellent, smart, and capable OEM. They're practically the only good Windows OEM left, and they're coming in very strong into the mobile market.

They're a sleeper imo
