(A) compared to Nokia, which gets less than 10 percent from hardware sales.
can't compare profit to nokia.

(B) whereas hardware sales account for less than 10 percent of Nokia’s profits
seems fine.hold on

(C) while in Nokia it is less than 10 percent
"it" has nothing to refer back to

(D) whereas less than 10 percent of profits come from hardware sales in Nokia
sentence changes the meaning in kind of vague way. 10% of profits of Samsung or of Nokia???

(E) compared with the profits from hardware sales in Nokia, in which it is less than 10 per
same as C. furthermore ,can't compare percentage of profits to profits itself
