Just how polarized is the mobile industry? This chart says it all

Mobile Phone Industry Revenue

The mobile industry has painted a familiar picture of the past 12 quarters: the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Benedict Evans of Enders Analysis on Thursday published what may be the best chart we have seen to date in terms of illustrating just how polarized the mobile phone industry is right now, where the top eight phone branded vendors are concerned. On one side we have Samsung and Apple, which have combined over the past three years to mop up an increasingly massive portion of mobile industry revenues. On the other side we have Nokia, HTC, LG, BlackBerry, Motorola and Sony — which all seem to be going nowhere fast. Evans’s eye-opening chart follows below.
