Apple Inc now ranks sixth in China smartphone market

While this story isn’t totally Android related, we’re always scoping the competition. The world is a funny place, especially when marketing is involved. Take Euro-Disney for example: Who would’ve ever thought Disney would fail anywhere in the world? Similarly, Apple is nearly having the same fate in China. Okay, maybe that was an exaggeration. Regardless, things could be better for Apple in China. Research firm IDC has reported that Apple Inc has fallen to sixth place in China’s smartphone market. Turns out that the Chinese are a loyal group and like sticking to their own brands. Not surprisingly, Samsung nailed down the top spot.

    Um, Apple doesn’t have the number one spot in the world. Samsung does. They don’t even have the number one spot in the US. In fact, I don’t think they have the number one spot in a single country.

      I’m very happy to see that too, because they do NOT deserve even the number 2 or 3 spot.

    Again, Apple isn’t on pace to take number one either. They’ve lost 3 percent of the smartphone market since last year, and 27 percent of the tablet market. You just aren’t very good at this . Read some numbers from Gartner and the IDC. Apple has lost shareholders 166 billion dollars in the past two months. Apple is having problems.

      Again, I’m very happy to see that. They’ve asked for this to happen by the stances and actions they have been taking over the past two years ( Little more than that actually ). They deserve what is happening to them, all they are is a bunch of money grubbing, greedy, hypocrites.
