Google’s Q3 2013 financial results were stellar, beating industry analyst expectations and causing their stock price to surge this morning, one thing remains troubling. Motorola, Google’s recent hardware and patent acquisition, continues to suffer losses. Though the handset maker is poised for a revival, it’s just not happening.
their earnings call, which wrapped up moments ago, Google noted their revenue was up 12% over Q3 2012.
Samsung has shown a strong financial third quarter in its latest financial posting. This was largely due to more affordable smartphone models being sold in emerging markets.
HTC. Although not as bad as its predicted 8% loss, the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer has just reported a financial loss of 6.3% for the third quarter that ended Monday. This, together with other figures and activities, or lack thereof, could spell big trouble for the company.
T-Mobile released their Q2 2013 earnings report and it looks like revenue is up for the UNcarrier. In fact, T-Mobile has said that revenues for the second quarter have grown by 8.6 percent year-over-year. This accounts for a total revenue increase of 27.5 percent. Though, T-Mobile has also credited this towards "the inclusion of MetroPCS results" for May and June 2013.
Qualcomm Snapdragon processor under that HD display. Samsung and their Galaxy S3 and S4, the HTC One, LG's Nexus 4 and many other devices are all powered by Qualcomm, which is one of many reasons they've (yet again) had record sales and revenue for the Q3 earnings report this year.
AT&T is sharing all the details regarding their Q2 of 2013. While their U-Verse and household options have been doing well, their large revenue numbers are in part due to strong smartphones sales. Most notably, Android smartphone sales.
Google today, they've been making plenty of cash. While we'll talk more on that later, we wanted to mention some Android numbers because as usual Larry was on the earnings call shouting them out. I'm just excited to know that soon enough Android will reach that magical 1 billion point. That's impressive!
