Mobile news present… Michael Walkley, Canaccord Genuity analyst announced that Apple and Samsung gained more than 95 percent of mobile profit last quarter.

According to the analyst that Apple gained approximately 80 percent of mobile profits last fourth quarter from 56 percent of the previous third quarter that achieved 8.1 percent on mobile phone global market.

On the other hand, Samsung fluctuated from 26 percent to 15 percent of profit in the industry. Yet, Google’s Android platform increased from 35 percent to 39 percent.

Apple sold 37 million iPhones for the recent quarter hoping to earn $13 billion while Samsung stayed mute regarding its smartphone’s sold outs. One analyst spoiled out that Samsung had already earned more than $35 million.

In 2011, Apple and Samsung dominated the mobile industry to manage their own sales to compete and to win the market place from the consumers.

HTC acquired 3 percent from the global market last quarter while Nokia and RIM gained 2 percent profit from its mobile sales. Motorola and LG were defeated while Sony Ericsson declined 2 percent loss.

Other companies such as Nokia, RIM, LG, Motorola and Sony Ericsson have been straggling to survive in the mobile industry while Apple and Samsung dominated the market for survival and to gain the trust and interest from the consumers.

After the proclamation of Nokia and Microsoft association and after the abandonment of Nokia to Symbian OS, Nokia admitted that 2012 will be difficult to turn the wheel and yet they believe it is their turning point in the market place.

RIM confirmed to have shakeouts to release catchy smartphones. CEO Thorsten Heins hopes that the company with the new smartphones upcoming will regain back their loss from the previous years.

After Google bought some share from Motorola, the company still hoping that Google will lift the company and gain profit more than the previous quarters.

“With RIM, Nokia, HTC, and Sony Ericsson all in the midst of product transitions and Motorola Mobility merging with Google, we believe Apple and Samsung will maintain dominant share positions during [the first half of 2012].” said analyst Michael Walkley
