Samsung Rises Past Motorola to Take No. 2 Spot
AAPL/ NOK shld just buyout MOT
If the MOT-NOK merger would not fly with regulators, how abt AAPL buying out MOT?
AAPL gets an immediate presence in the wireless market (to capitalize the iPhone brand even more).. an iRAZR (lol)
See this article from March.. its kind of making some sense..
And after the fiasco that was the original ROKR, I don...
and im pretty sure even if apple would buy it (it won't, like Omagus said) they wouldn't create a product with "raz...
Not Surprised at All, Here's Why
1. The Samsung SYNC has out sold every mid range to high end phone (including the razr) on at&t.
2. The c417 since it has been released has absolutely dominated our entry level handset class. Motorola currently doesn't have an answer for it (at least on at&t).
3. The BlackJack has outsold every other smart phone/PDA on at&t with the exception of the Blackberries (only if you add the sales of the pearl/8800/curve/8700).
All in all, Even before these numbers were released, I noticed that 7/10 phones that were leaving my store seemed to be Samsungs. Also, the amount of advertising that at&t did on the BlackJack and SYNC was absolutely sick. And not ment...
I am also an at&t employee, and I agree, the SYNC dominates my non-converged device sales. I sell more SYNCs than V3's, V3xx's, CU500's, N75's, and w810's combined. Not to mention that, despite this, I get more of the Motorolas I sell ...
Am I the only one who's noticed....
The Moto Q that AT&T is picking up may be a sweet phone, but if it's twice as pricey as the Blackjack, it'll still be an uphill battle.
No wonder Moto's slipping.
Where's HTC on the list?
AD discussions continues below...
Purchasing new Gulfstreams was wise......
I assume the GV was for Eddie boy to fly back and forth to San Diego to check on his house being built.
But, in all seriousness this is just another spin of a vicious cycle that began with the failure to move beyond AMPS.
The "me too" RAZR strategy is a joke. MOT was an innovator at one time. But, they think that product proliferation is a winning strategy.
Bound to happen
I know if I were to get a DLP, it would be Samsung, with an LED light engine, because they require less energy.
nokia will always be number one
It wont be long till apple is on the list as one of the top cell phone manufactures....j/k 😉
RIMM has higher market cap than MOT
I'm actually more surprised...
The Cybershot brand is an awesome handset, but it's not yet available through either of the 2 GSM carriers in the U.S.!!!!
Now that's irony.
If Samsung didn't make better, cheaper thin phones, Moto would still be #2 instead of just #2.
