If you have followed the latest quarterly result, the correlation between smartphone and good financial result is obvious:
- Sony-Ericsson and Motorola have posted some good figures, as they are strongly focussed on Smartphones powered either by Android or Symbian. > Sony-Ericsson earnings > Motorola Q1 earnings
- Samsung margins shrink despite rising shipments. Samsung isn’t so strong in smartphones and is currently managing a strategic shift from feature phones towards smartphones with the Galaxy S and the Wave. > samsung results
- LG Mobile division has posted a 20% revenue decrease, as it has a very week positions in smartphones. > LG Group results
Smartphone seems definitely the magic trick to get good financial results. We can expect a strong push from Samsung and LG into the smartphone space in the coming quarters. It is a question of survival.
