Michael Kan | Nov. 24, 2011
China has passed the U.S. in the third quarter to become the world's largest smartphone market by shipments, but may find it tough to hold the position in the next two quarters, according to a research firm.

Apple, a company that has seen its iPhone sales soar in China, has an estimated 12 percent share in the country's market, Kang said. "It's share has been doubling every year," he added.

In the third quarter, HTC had a 24 percent market share in the U.S., while Apple had a 20.6 percent share.
