Apple-Samsung mobile industry stranglehold not seen ending anytime soon

Apple Samsung Market Share Analysis

Tired of seeing Apple and Samsung dominate the mobile market place? Well too bad — it looks like they’re going to keep crushing the competition through at least 2014. CNET looks at some recent data from both Gartner and Asymco and concludes that Apple and Samsung are likely to keep their stranglehold on the mobile industry for the foreseeable future. Essentially, Gartner’s projected market share for 2014 shows iOS and Android maintaining their dominance of the smartphone market while Asymco’s data shows that Apple and Samsung will likely remain the only two consistently profitable smartphone vendors. Taken together, CNET says that “it appears that Apple and Samsung will continue their complicated duopoly, carving up the majority of profit and a growing portion of sales.”
