Samsung and Apple have swallowed up all the profits in the smartphone business. According to data from Canaccord Genuity, last quarter those two companies had 108% of the industry’s profits.

Using Canaccord’s data we’ve made this chart. Note that it is annual data from 2007-2011, then quarterly data for the last two quarters. The ascent of Apple and Samsung, while everyone else crashes is astounding.
