Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): The iPhone has seen a boost, making it India’s second largest smartphone by pushing phones to Mom-and-Pop shops. Despite Apple’s struggle to catch up to other smartphone makers like Samsung, analysts claim that Apple has finally begun to take India seriously, CNN reported. “In Q4, Apple has turned out to be the number two player in India. And this means that they have done a significant shift in their positioning,” stated Venu Reddy, research director at IDC, the technology market research firm. “Suddenly, everyone was throwing their BlackBerrys, Samsungs, Nokias and everyone was kind of changing to an iPhone,” claimed customer Akanshya Balram. Samsung continues to be the top smartphone brand in India, as it has 38.8 percent of market share in terms of revenue, followed by Apple with 15.6 percent, Sony (NYSE:SNE) at 9.4 percent, and Nokia (NYSE:NOK) at 7.3 percent.
