Patrick Seitz, Investors Business Daily:
Among six major vendors surveyed, four were profitable in
smartphone sales in Q4, Canaccord analyst Michael Walkley said
in the report. They were Apple, BlackBerry, Samsung and
Samsung accounted for 9 percent of smartphone industry profits in Q4,
while Sony took 1 percent and BlackBerry less than 1 percent.
Interesting that Samsung did as well as they did given the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. And how bad is it for all the other phone makers in the world that they finished in the red, but even BlackBerry eked out a small profit?
(It’s because everyone else lost money that the numbers for profit share add up to more than 100.)
