This is 3x the share that Apple have right now, and the gap has grown twice as big over the summer, said Gartner. The Chinese launch not happening until early-2012, this has resulted in a slumped bunch of numbers. Apple's sales would've been huge had they launched the iPhone 4S earlier.

 

Apple has overall been enthusiastic about the Chinese market, but are reluctant to support China Mobile's TD-SCDMA 3G network has given Samsung, as well as locals like Huawei, Lenovo and ZTE free rein to thrive on the world's largest cellular carrier. Apple has so far been on second-place China Unicom, and have only recently added China Telecon, sitting at third place.
