In the smartphone market, Apple’ s Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook admitted that despite iPhone sales in the country enjoying a 38 percent annual rise, its latest handset, iPhone 5 hasn’t arrived yet, while its main rival Samsung Electronics Co introduced Google Inc’s Android-based system Galaxy III months ago.

About 60 percent of its Apple’s revenue comes from outside the United States.

Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5s in the first three days after its launch on Sept 21.

But Samsung, the South Korean company, now has double the number of global smartphone shipments of its US rival, and has earned record high quarterly profits from July to September, according to IT research company International Data Corporation
