Apple has become the No.1 mobile phone vendor in US for the first time ever
According to research firm Strategy Analytics, Apple overtook Samsung to become the No.1 phone vendor in the United States in Q4 2012. The report, released this evening, shows that Apple sold 17.7 million iPhones in the quarter against 16.8 million for Samsung and 4.7 million from No. 3 LG. 9To5Mac reports.
That�s not smartphones. That�s phones. Samsung has been the No. 1 vendor for phones in the U.S. for 5 years. Apple�s sold more than one out of every three phones in the quarter in the U.S., a feat made even more remarkable when taken with the fact that Samsung and LG sell a great deal of feature phones and very inexpensive low-end smartphones.
