This is the first of two articles looking at how we measure - and mis-measure - who is "winning" in the mobile sector. Article one focuses on market share and was inspired by an article written by Bill Shamblin, entitled: "Chasing Smartphone Market Share Is A Chump's Game."
The Samsung Galaxy S4 just arrived in Verizon stores today. I dropped by. One thing I noticed? No lines at the stores. Of course there weren't many S4's there either (I bought it from a smaller store in Pacifica, California). I got the last one, a white one.
