Really, impressive

I never saw so vertiginous and dramatic changes on any industry sector before. In just a couple of years kings and kingdoms were erected and then eroded.

It makes the usual economic metrics they apply to evaluate a company on Wall Street and abroad anachronic. All the methods are just wild speculation on this sector but, I guess, it serves well the purpose of those that seek to make easy money at expense of others.

It takes looking back at the handset market before the iPhone to see that this market has had many leaders, and will continue to do so well into the future.

Things aren't static and Samsung would be wise not to take their current position for granted.
