But the situation changed in Q4 last year, Apple’s iOS dominated in mobile OS, up by 17% from 26% in Q3. In contrast, Android OS declined by 13% from 60% in Q3 2011, whereas, Microsoft and RIM were struggled to regain its market share in Q4 last year. A recent study states that during Oct/Nov 2011, the demand of Apple’s Smartphone was extremely high, and iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and iPhone 3GS were at first, second, and third position respectively.

Samsung was successful in Q4 last year due to its Galaxy line of Smartphone; however, it’s true that the company is largest supplier of Apple’s component.

Apple and Samsung together sold more than 70 million Smartphone in Q4 last year. Other players like Motorola mobility, HTC, and LG electronics struggled to attract the users. Nokia introduced its Lumia model last year, and the company has reportedly sold 1 million units in Q4.

Global consumer insight director at the research firm—Sunnebo—said, “Apple has continued its strong sales run in the US, UK, and Australia over the Christmas period. The Nokia Lumia 800 still needs to be joined by a number of other competitive Windows Phone handsets before we are likely to see the OS (operating System) providing any real challenge to likes of Apple, Android, and Blackberry.”

The competitors of Samsung and Apple had to suffer in the last financial quarter of 2011. HTC had faced first quarterly profit decline in the last couples of years. Motorola Mobility was comprehensively collapsed in the Q4 last year, whereas, LG has scheduled to release its result on February 1 this year—reported two consecutive quarterly losses.

For Motorola and HTC, it’s really an appropriate time to frame their strategy to assert rivals like Apple. However, Motorola has recently announced that the company is going to focus on the selective models of their Smartphone and put the time to increase the dollars. Despite of availability of Android Operating System to multiple hardware makers, Apple’s iOS has defeated Android, which is only available on its own products. Recently, Morgan Stanley has estimated that Apple could sell as many as 40 million iPhones in China by 2013. Definitely, it will obnoxious for Apple’s rivals, but enthusiastic for Apple.
