Apple second-largest smartphone maker by revenue in India

February 18, 2013

AppleIts cool quotient may be fraying at home, but Apple’s iPhone has become the second largest smartphone brand in terms of revenue and the fifth largest by volume in India, muscling its way up the league tables helped by an advertising blitzkrieg and some aggressive pricing.

Yet-to-be-released data from industry trackers and mobile phone retailers is expected to show that Apple has dislodged BlackBerry and wrested revenue market share from No. 1 Samsung in the last quarter of 2012, no mean feat, analysts say, for a company that has long viewed India as a non-priority market.
