Did Intels phone with Lenovo just jump to number 2 in China.. Moving up, how long did that take, a few months?
In Q2 Apple fell to fourth place in this massive market, with the IDC Group reporting market share plunging from 20 percent to 10 percent. Gartner, Inc. (IT) reported a smaller drop from 17 to 12 percent. Regardless of which numbers are correct, the consensus is Apple struggled in China; at least for a quarter.
Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930), Apple's bitter perennial rival also fell slightly from 21 percent to 19 percent, but clung to the top sales spot. Meanwhile, a local firm, Lenovo Group, Ltd. (HKG:0992) -- makers of the Intel Corp. (INTC) x86 Android "LePhone" -- rose to second, seizing 11 percent of the market. Lenovo is currently in second place in PC sales as well, globally. ZTE Corp. (SHE:000063) also did well, moving past Apple and into third place.
Lenovo as a phone vendor supplies a number of phones. One is Intel based. It is not stated what percentage of the 11% is contributed by the Intel device. I would doubt that the Intel phone is a large part.
