Which handset makers dominated Q4 shipments?


ABI Research's Michael Morgan analyzes the world's 12 largest branded cell phone makers in the fourth quarter of 2012, providing sales data as well as insight into their strategy and competitive position in the mobile market. Though most research firms only list the market's top five handset makers, ABI lists a full top 12 (and the firm is providing shipment numbers for all of the vendors listed). Further, Morgan agreed to look back over the full-year 2012 to evaluate the momentous changes that affected the cell phone industry, showing exactly which firms managed to rise above the noise during last year--and which did not.
