Bigger are getting bigger, and small are sharing crumples, Apple and Samsung are getting even larger share of the smartphone US market.
Two top manufacturers are holding over 68% of the US smartphone market, as we can see in the recent study from NPD Group. Apple with it’s new iPhone 5S and 5C line recorded the largest rise and got 42% in the Q4, growth in more then 7%. Ant the Korean company market share rose to the 26% of the market share in the Q4.
If they won, someone have to lose, and one of the biggest losers in last year was, BlackBerry company, which lost two thirds of it’s US market share. Losing row is not finished with BlackBerry, Motorola and HTC were two other losers, with LG the only other top handset manufacturer to see some year-over-year gains.
