Samsung expects to double its smartphone market share to 10 percent by Q4
Now that the Samsung Galaxy S is expected to show itself in some form on a worldwide scale, the Korean based manufacturer is eying itself in moving up the smartphone market share ladder. Currently they sit at a 5 percent market share and ranked in 5th place overall – nowhere close to market leader Nokia who happens to be at a healthy 40 percent. However, they're specifically looking to attack some of its closer competitors – like HTC who happens to be ranked 4th at 7 percent.
Samsung Senior VP of Mobile Communications Division, Lee Donjoo said, “Samsung intends to raise its market share for smartphones to more than 10 percent in the fourth quarter from its current level of less than 5 percent.” The Samsung Galaxy S is increasingly becoming the device that might potentially make that figure a reality as the smartphone is recognized highly in an already crowded mix of offerings this summer. Time will paint the true telling if it can indeed become that premier smartphone that can take the company to new heights.
