Worldwide mobile phone sales have been declined by 1.7% from 2011 to 2012. However, there was a record sale of smartphones in the Q4 2012, i.e. the sale of 207.7 million units, which is up 38.3% from the same period in the same quarter last year.

“The last time the worldwide mobile phone market declined was in 2009,” said Anshul Gupta, principal research analyst at Gartner. “Tough economic conditions, shifting consumer preferences and intense market competition weakened the worldwide mobile phone market this year.”

Apple got 72% of all global handset profits in the last quarter while Samsung got 29% of the profits. Check the bite of Apple and don’t worry about the percentages, these are rounded figures. Moreover, these figures are so compact (or more) to the 100% that the profit of other companies such as Nokia, Blackberry, and HTC cannot fit into that percentage.

Considering the report, Fortune’s Philip Elmer-DeWitt noted that 29% of the Samsung’s profits came 28.9% of unit sales. Nearly 43 cents of every dollar spent on cellphone in the world in the last quarter went to Apple, Samsung got 36 cents, Nokia got 7 cents and the rest of the companies got less than 5.

Apple’s iPad (in all forms), although has lost some of the market share, but remained on top in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to IDC.

Apple showed 43.6% of market share for that quarter, shipping 22.9 million tablets. Although, it is a good percentage but still the company found the loss of 6.8% of market share in the case of iOS tablets. Samsung is on second position with the shipment of 7.9 million units of tablets, in all its forms, accounting for 15.1% of market share. Samsung found 263% of year-on-year growth.

Considering other companies; Amazon shipped 6 million tablets and got 11.5% of market share, ASUS got 5.8% of market share, Barnes and Noble got 1.9% of market share in the top five positions while 22.1% of total tablet sales are attributed to the other manufacturers including Microsoft’s Surface tablet.
