    The reports from IDC's Asia-Pacific Mobile Phone Tracker will be made available sometime later this week, and it will show Apple gaining a market share of 15.6%. This is something higher compared to the company's share of 3.9% in the previous quarter. With this growth in Apple's market share, the market gap between Samsung and Apple had narrowed. However, it is still behind Samsung's 38.8% market share, but managed to race ahead of Blackberry which has a market share of 6%.

    It is seen that Apple's sales volume had grown up three times and is placed at the fifth spot behind Samsung, Nokia, Sony and Micromax. The company has seen a four-time increase in shipping last quarter. The company is now expecting big numbers this quarter.

    According to analysts, January-March quarter will see the gap narrowing further between Samsung and Apple. The IDC data suggests Samsung is still the market leader, although its market share fell by 12% and there was a decrease in shipment compared to the preceding quarter. Samsung is unfazed by Apple's sudden growth in India and says it is looking further to consolidating its market leadership.
