iPhone Secured 20% Profit Share of Mobile Phone Industry?

The Wall Street Journal (via MacRumors) published a report stating that while Apple’s iPhone, and RIM’s BlackBerry make up only 3% of mobile phone sales last year, yet snatched a whopping 35% out of total market profits. If we talk about iPhone only, it secured just 1% of total mobile phone sales but brought Apple 20% out of total Mobile Phone Market Profits.

Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Modoff says:

The disparity will become even starker this year when the two will take 5% of the market in unit terms but 58% of total operating profits.

Palm Pre is seen as something of a wild card , depending on distribution reach and developers support. From the graph we can easily tell that Mobile Phone industry Giant: Nokia can compete due to economies of scale.
