In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner discusses some numbers coming out of market research firm IDC, highlighting smartphone shipments across Q4 of 2012. In the video, Andrew breaks down where the market share stands today, whether it's Apple or Samsung phones that are growing faster, where some of the other players in this enormously lucrative market stand, and why emerging markets are going to be one of the most important drivers going forward.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, after the company's 35% backslide since September, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
