@abraxalito: Based on Strategy Analytics estimates, NVIDIA ranked number seven in the smartphone apps processor market in Q1 2012. The company currently has only 2 percent revenue share in the smartphone apps processor market. However, NVIDIA continues to do well in the tablet apps processor market and ranked number two in the non-iPad tablet processor market in Q1 2012. Regards, Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, Strategy Analytics.

@eewiz: Top-five smartphone apps processor vendor list based on Strategy Analytics data. 1. Qualcomm 2. Samsung 3. Broadcom 4. TI 5. MediaTek Source: Strategy Analytics Quarterly Smartphone Apps Processor Market Share Tracker We allocate Apple's shipments to Samsung in our model. If we were to separate Apple’s shipments from Samsung, Apple would rank number two and Samsung would rank number three in the smartphone apps processor market. MediaTek's smartphone chips (MT657x) gained strong traction in Q1 2012. Regards, Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, Strategy Analytics.

Where is Nvidia? Too busy complaining at TSMC to get any useful work done it seems.

@eewiz- I've just added to the story a chart provided by Strategy Analytics that shows the top three smartphone processor vendors and their market share. As you can see, it's Qualcomm, Samsung, TI. #4 and #5, not shown, are Broadcom and Apple. You mention Apple. I have an email into Strategy Analytics to find out if they count Apple's iPhone CPUs as Samsung products or Apple products. Either way, iPhone is an incredibly popular and profitable product, but accounts for only about 13 percent of smartphone market share.

So what is order like? 1. Apple 2. Samsung 3. Qualcomm 4. TI 5. Mediatek ( Are we considering all those almost obsolete ARM11 chips as App processors?)
