Cell Phone Profits - (all cellphones, not just the smart phones, which are, of course, gaining a bigger and bigger share):
Apple took home 72% of the profits with only 21.7% of unit sales (up from 15.4% in Q3).
Samsung's 29% of the profits came from 28.9% of unit sales (down from 32.3% in Q3).
Last quarter, Apple (AAPL) and Samsung so dominated the worldwide market for mobile phones (smart and dumb) that the rest of the manufacturers -- including Nokia (NOK), Motorola (GOOG), BlackBerry (BBRY), Sony (SNE), LG and HTC -- either broke even or lost money.
