This chart shows Apple's exceptional position in the global mobile phone industry.
It is no secret that Apple’s iPhone business is exceptionally profitable. New numbers, released by an analyst of investment bank Canaccord Genuity, show just how exceptional Apple’s position in the mobile phone market really is.
In the second quarter of 2012, Apple claimed an estimated 71% of the industry’s total profits. A number that is even more astonishing considering that the iPhone only accounted for 6% of global mobile phone shipments in the same period.
