WORLDWIDE MOBILE HANDSET MAKERS  COMPARISON 

The latest data on Worldwide Mobile Handset manufacturers/OEMs published by Garter recently, does not have too many surprises baring the fact that Microsoft has now taken up the place vacated by Nokia who was once the worlds biggest mobile handset manufacturer 

Here are Some of the Highlights

 1.)Clearly and substantially Samsung does the talking in number. Its way ahead from the rest both in volumes and marketshare .Controlling 21% global mobile handset marketshare ranked the number 1. 

2)Apple comes 2nd with 10.2% marketshare shared by their iPhone versions.Drilling into Apple's geographic data shows that it has been able to increase its Chinese sales by 56% and US sales were up by 88% 

3)Microsoft with 9.9% global marketshare ranks 3rd and also has been the biggest gainer in terms of volumes and marketshare YoY ( .obviously due to the Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia) 

4)The Chinese Manufacturing Giants are fairly well represented in the form of,LG, Huawei TCL Xiaomi and ZTE   

 5)Together the top 3 OEM's Samsung, Apple and Microsoft held 40% of the Global Mobile Market in 2014, a far cry from lets say 2007-08 . when the likes of Nokia/ RIM/ Samsung /Motorola used to control 65% of the market
