iPhone also has a much higher margin than Samsung's phones on average.

I think next quarter might be different. The latest model of Samsung phones are almost as good.

Looks like Samsung has surpassed Nokia and RIM in the smart phone race and is now catching up with Apple. On the price front Samsung's price is much more affordable compared to Apple's

In high end smartphone Apple has always been topping the chart...more because of great quality of product and "Steve Jobs" effect. Samsung version for high end smartphone is new, to name Galaxy S2 & Galaxy Note". But in near future, Samsung could be tough competitor in high end segment, especially in emerging markets.

I think Samsung and Apple are going to eat more and more market share from Nokia, if Nokia doesn't do something fascinating faster.

Benefit of Android should be taken only by Samsung, other companies will also be getting much share from the smartphone market. Apple price is comparatively higher than the android phones this is the reason why android will be ruling in the developing countries. Who it is very strange that why Nokia is focusing on Android!!!

Having said Samsung will dominate Android smartphone market. Will the future be a war between Samsung+Android and Apple (iOS is already part of Apple phone)? The original goal of Andriod was to open up the opportunities for different phone makers with its open-source OS so as to achieve a more competitive price point. With one brand eventually taking the lead, finally how open the Andriod can be and how much benefit consumers can get?

I wonder why HTC is off the chart since I have seen a very high quality HTC smartphone. With the latest Lumia 710, Lumia 800, and the coming of Lumia 900, Nokia may gain some market shares. Who knows! The question is how Nokia differentiate itself from the rest of the Windows Mobile phone vendor?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
