Apple & RIM Gobble Up Disproportionate Cellphone Profits
Monday, July 20th, 2009 at 4:24 PM - by Bryan Chaffin
While Apple's iPhone and Research In Motion's Blackberry sold three percent of the world's cellphones in 2008, they gobbled up some 35% of the market's profits.
This according to Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Modoff (via The Wall Street Journal), who said the picture gets even rosier for the two companies in 2009, when he expects Apple and RIM to claim some 5% of cell phones sold in the global market. With that number, Mr. Modoff said the two firms will enjoy some 58% of the total profits.
Of the 35% the two companies claim, Apple's share is 20%, while RIM raked in 15% -- but, RIM sells more BlackBerrys than Apple sells iPhones, with a broader product line.
Neither company is even the largest smartphone manufacturer -- Nokia claims that honor, as well as the title of the world's #1 handset manufacturer -- yet clearly Apple and RIM are dominating the highest of the high-end of the market.
