chinesecheung在414樓提及There are 2 product segments: smartphone and other products (I think it should be functional phones mainly).
Total shipment for 2013-FY is 17.5m (smartphone) + 37.6m(other) = 55.2m (pls note it is volume, not $). Avg for 4 months (divided by 3, to compare with 2014-01 to 2014-04) is 5.8m (smart) + 12.5m(other) = 18.4m
From 2014-01 to 2014-04, total shipment is 8.8m + 10.1m(other) = 18.9m. Thus growth over the avg for 4 months (pls see above) is +52% (smart) -20% (other) and 2.7% (total shipment).
**Pls note I use stringent criteria, i.e. avg for months, for comparison instead of yoy.
Pls help to verify my figures. Hope this can help you.
Also may I know what is "stock post"?
ffaazlmy, in case you do not know 2618 is discussing the handset deal with reliance in India, I read it in a news. Pls verify.
I dont have 2618 now. But I still like it. India is the 2nd highest populated country in the world. And most people still use the functional phones. Do not know who are the mobile phone players in that country.
I agree that India is a large market, especially for low to medium price smart phone. It is a now question which company will take possession of market share faster. TCL is not the only one. Mind that some mainland handset company is also targeting this market. I don't have the news. But I think they shall have been swiftly set out to India.
