I don't think the connectivity devices are accounted in this calculation. AP is a specific term in mobile world.

BCM may have grabbed 5th spot from ALL of the design wins they have gotten with their BCM4329 and BCM4330 802.11 a/b/g/n Bluetooth 3.0 and FM SoC's. These two devices may be considered processors for sure and they own this socket in almost every connected device sold throughout the world. TI has just started to eat away at that market share with their WiLink 7.

My understanding is that ST-Ericsson, Renesas and MediaTek are not shipping a ton of chips into smartphones yet. Which is part of the challenge.

Where are ST-Ericsson, Renesas and MediaTek ? These guy ship a ton of single core integrated products ? Are apple numbers included in Samsung's numbers ? Apple alone is 20-30% of AP market ? Are these number included here ? Where are Nokia (ST-Ericsson / TI) numbers included ?

According to Strategy Analytics PR of today, Dec. 6, 2011, 2:19 p.m. EST, titled "Strategy Analytics: Smartphone Applications Processor Revenues Jump 59 Percent in Q3 2011; Broadcom Grabs Fifth Spot from NVIDIA" the ranking is "described" (no table) by the following - According to Strategy Analytics, Qualcomm led the smartphone applications processor market in terms of both unit shipments and revenue during Q3 2011. Judging by numbers of units sold, Samsung, Texas Instruments, Marvell and Broadcom made up the rest of the top-five vendors. NVIDIA lost its number five position to Broadcom.
