In December Apple launched iTunes Store in Russia and just last week Apple organized a week-long seminar for Russian regional ministers of education in London in a new effort to drum up business in Russia. That's understandable considering that a new study published by mobile retailer Euroset shows that Apple's iPhone in Q4 2012 only held a 6% market share in Russia, a distant third to Nokia and Samsung who combined held a 63% market share. The study showed that price alone was the reason for Apple's poor showing as there's not much of a middle class in Russia. Yet with Apple aggressively entering the Indian market with 28 cent iTunes, Gartner IT analyst believes that Apple is making a move in India. In general, Apple may be kick starting a more concentrated move into larger and tougher markets like India and Russia in 2013. However, in order for Apple to make a measurable dent in these markets to seriously challenge the likes of Nokia and Samsung, Apple will need to offer a more economical iPhone to lead the charge which the rumor mill believes is going to happen later this year. The report came by way of Business TASS, Russia's news agency stationed in Moscow.
