Rsearch firm IDC says Apple slid from fourth to sixth in the third quarter of this year, while brands like Lenovo, Coolpad, ZTE and Huawei — all based in Asia — stayed strong. This is likely due to availability and price, which has caused a shift toward more Android-based adoption in that region. The iPhone 5 will come to China on December 14, which may help Apple, but won’t perform any miracles to help Apple climb back up.
