Taking on iPhone could be too much for LG, Nokia

Dethroning Apple’s iPhone could prove to be too big a bite for some of the old leaders of the cellphone industry, including LG Electronics, who are only now scrambling to catch up with their phones and services.

Nokia, Samsung and LG control 70 per cent of the total handset market but their failure to stop Apple’s roaring march in the smart phone market has hit their profits and is now raising questions about whether it is a fight they will want to continue.

Apple, which entered the handset industry only three years ago, makes one iPhone for every 13 phones Nokia sells, but it generates larger total profit from these fewer phones.
