HTC Gains Top Spot in Domestic Smartphone Share
HTC has vaulted to the top spot in Canalys' market share rankings for the U.S. smartphone market, besting second place Samsung and pushing Apple to third for the third quarter.
Research in Motion, meanwhile, saw its market share drop into the single digits, falling from 24 percent a year earlier to just 9 percent.
‘This is an awesome achievement for HTC, which has built a premium brand in a highly competitive market in just a few short years," Canalys vice president and principal analyst Chris Jones said as part of the announcement. "It now has a strong range of 4G Android products, with devices ranged by each of the major carriers, and offers some of the most compelling and differentiated products found on the platform today.’
