Nokia and HTC are other companies who have found themselves having smaller shares in the beginning of this year, with Nokia down 0.9% and HTC down 0.4%. Sony and Lenovo seem to be among the few companies that have actually registered a growth. Sony, which recently launched its Xperia Z smartphone, has climbed all the way from 3.5% to... 3.8%, while Lenovo currently controls 3.9% of the market, up from 3.3% in 2012.
Although Apple is having a bit of a hard time right now, it's important to note that it doesn't seem to be losing the battle to Samsung, but to all the others who have managed to grow their businesses. What this means is that there's simply a decreased demand for Apple's current products. Will this ignite the innovative spirit at Cupertino? We guess we'll find out later this year.
