Samsung's Smartphones Stumble in Asia and Europe
Research firm Gartner said "demand for Samsung’s smartphones [in the third quarter] weakened, mostly in Western Europe and Asia. Samsung’s smartphone sales declined 28.6 percent in China, the biggest market for Samsung." Gartner also said it expects Apple to experience its biggest ever fourth-quarter sales, "with both of its large-screen phones seeing demand exceed supply since their launch."
