mobile vendors  marketshare


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

The 2nd lot Xiaomi handsets gets sold out in india in 5 seconds on Flipkart

Xiamo Handsets sold out in inida
has flipkart let down xiomi let her down badly

The 2nd lot Xiaomi  handsets gets sold out in india in 5 seconds on Flipkart

Xiaomi is pleasantly surprised by the raging demand for its Mi3 smartphone but can the Chinese handset maker meet it? Repeat Xiaomi (pronounced shiao-me) five times. The time you will take to accomplish this minor feat is approximately the time it took the Chinese maker of smartphones to sell out their second lot of Mi3 smartphones in India: about five seconds. Xi aomi has had two flash sales so far, on Flipkart, where Xiaomi phones are sold exclusively. 

On July 22, F l i p k a r t 's w e b s i t e crashed, unable to take the barrage of traffic as the phones went on sale for the first time in India. A week later, Flip kart hosted the second flash sale but it was over in a matter of seconds as the phones sold out. Also to set the record straight Its not only India who is seeing such a demand for Xiaomi. handsets . Earlier sold about 7 million phones in 2012 and 18 million phones in 2013

Now the question is " why has Fipkart been authorized as an exclusive sales "Retai outlet..or its just that Flipkary has managed to store and hoard the phones..and why does the consumer have to depend on our dealer However ne rest assured, this demand supply( distribution) gap which has been not only happening in India . Similar thing happened in malaya, Singapore and China.In Malay sia, the Mi3 handsets disappeared in 17 minutes when they were launched in May.
