Nokia’s losses amounted to a negative 2% of industry profits, and Motorola and Sony Ericsson both accounted for -1%.

Apple’s share of industry profits was even larger in the Q4 of 2012, as they introduced their new flagship handset, the iPhone 5 during the quarter. Apple grabbed a 72% chunk of the profits for the quarter, with Samsung sliding down a bit to 29%.
