What´s the market share of the major cell phone manufacturers?
The economic recession has delivered a severe blow on all cell phone manufacturers and even the most successful of them are registering profit shortfalls. Motorola and Sony Ericsson aren´t doing great at all, although they managed to hold their market positions and are still on the top5 list in terms of market share. This is so, because market share itself cannot be directly interpreted as profit, although it´s exactly the amount of positive income that is of interest to most investors, because it shows where the companies are headed for.

Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Modof has made the necessary research and the graph you can see below shows the relevant company profits as percentage of the total industry value. Nokia still leads the pack with 60% of the industry earnings, huge earnings generated by its massive market share. What´s more interesting is that RIM and Apple, both smartphone focused, managed to make it off with a nice slice of the cake, despite their relatively miniature market presence. We certainly hope to see more similar analytic papers that would prove (or reject) the credibility of Mr. Modof´s research findings. Moreover, we believe we should see the largest Windows Mobile based cell phone manufacturer, HTC, on the graph as well.

The iphone is NOT a smartphone, it is a feature phone. Get that through your thick russian skulls.

Why isn't the iPhone a 'smartphone'? What makes a smartphone a smartphone besides the obvious basics?

You are correct the basics are what makes a smartphone a smartphone, and the basics are what the iphone does not have, just a few 'features' hence it is a feature phone.

The Iphone Is not a business phone, and thats what many consider to be a smart phone. There are many things the iPhone is lacking s60, blackberry, and even windows mobile have been doing for years.

I would like to see HTC on this list as well. I thought Samsung's profit would have been higher. oh well

Not all the time no one can win the match of stock market trade , humans are bounded with emotions and personal affairs that makes them to take wrong decisions at right time even though they are masters of trade. Markets dramatically change they their flow and no one exactly produce or expect 100% from their profits . Choosing the right indicator or analyzing software blended with human aspect gives better results.
