BlackBerry and Nokia barely register and, in fact, form a loss. First, I'd like to note why Dediu believes carriers are willing to cede so much of their profit to Apple and, presumably, Samsung. It's mostly about lock-in, a sort of bear hug that encourages customers to stay put in the long run. He writes:
