IDC has released its latest “Canada’s Quarterly Mobile Device Tracker” report, and Samsung again (for the 4th consecutive quarter) has shipped the most handsets (793,500 in Q4), led in marketshare, ranked highest in customer loyalty and somehow is the most popular mobile brand in 2008.
Paul Brannen, General Manager, Wireless Terminals, Samsung Electronics Canada said “Without a doubt the Canadian wireless device market is a very active and competitive space and Samsung takes great pride in being recognized as the national market share leader for 2008. We anticipate 2009 to be another strong year for Samsung handsets as we have a variety of innovative smartphones, touch phones and messaging devices set to launch throughout the year.”
All I have to say to Samung:
Let’s keep up with the rest of the world, bring your Android device out… show us how true your Canadian innovation really is!
(I hear it’s targeted for late Q3, early Q4 release)
