In today's AT&T earnings call, they boasted on 1.6 million new iPhone activations last quarter. Impressive, kind of, until figures from India came in: 15.6 million new mobile phone users in the month of March alone.
Kind of puts everything into perspective, doesn't it? While the US smartphone market is our main stock and trade here at Giz, no one should forget about companies like Nokia that supply a huge percentage of the rest of the world's phones. Even though they took a bit of a bath last quarter, it wasn't nearly as bad as some have hoped, and for that Nokia has nearly 16 million new phone users in India to thank. [Reuters]
