Although actual final sales to consumers of smartphones are difficult to judge from companies other than Apple, shipments in the September quarter totalled more than 320 million units, of which just 14.5 percent were iPhones.

Samsung had achieved a rare feat, however, and saw the Galaxy S II take the second-place spot away from the regular iPhone 4 on AT&T.

Analyst sees 77m iPhones in 2011, Android at 50% by 2012

07/08, 10:15am

Canaccord ups iPhone targets but sees Android high

Apple is seeing stepped up iPhone sales that will increase its total share, but not necessarily enough to stop Android from getting half of the market, Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Wakley said in two research notes. Checks last month showed the iPhone was still the top phone at AT&T and Verizon despite pressure from Android. He boosted his estimates from 75.5 million iPhones in 2011 to 77.3 million based on both the popularity and increased expectations Apple would ship the iPhone 5 in September.

Canaccord says iPhone strong but RIM, Motorola low

An investment note from Canaccord Genuity lead analyst T. Michael Walkley on Monday suggested that some of the halo devices for Android and BlackBerry were struggling to get sales even as Apple was succeeding. The iPhone and iPad were still selling very well at AT&T and Verizon in April and, in many cases, were outselling flagship Android devices. The iPhone 4 was the best-selling smartphone at both carriers, and the $49 iPhone 3GS was outselling both the HTC Inspire 4G and Motorola Atrix, according to checks at several stores.

Intel drops chip prices by 50pc to recover sales

The chip producer was reported in checks as having cut prices by half on Atom, Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 chips and by 15 percent for some chipsets. The move was predicted to fuel short-term demand, though it would come mostly from computer builders stocking up.
