phone market, but more impressively, smartphones make up "over 75% of industry revenues." More specifically Um says that we really need to take a look at just Apple and Samsung because those giants "now account for over 55% of industry revenues and over 90% of total [profits before tax].”UBS analyst Maynard Um has looked at the numbers and found that smartphones are now accounting for 30% of the cell
This comes on the heels of huge fourth quarters for each company, and it looks like that success is going to continue this year, and given the excitement for the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III, that's not too hard to believe.
