Smartphone sales: latest figures reveal Nokia the market leader by far

Posted on Updated on

The latest figures on smartphone sales release by analysts, Canalys, show that Nokia still holds the leading position with 16.4m units shipped in Q3, giving them a share of 39.7% of the market.

RIM’s Blackberry shipped 8.5m in the same period taking a 20.6% share and Apple’s iphone shipped 7.4m taking third place at 17.8%. HTC were forth with 2.2m phones.

It means that smartphone sales rose 4% on last year with total sales reaching 41.4 million.

Once again, there’s no doubting the popularity of the iphone, but it is important to remember that it is only third best selling manufacturer. However, as a single device it is significant, as both Nokia and RIM’s sales cover numerous handsets.

    Interesting that Nokia have now started to use Android on most of their handsets. Is it possible that Android will become, and remain, the leading OS for smartphones for the foreseeable future or will the Apple iPhone continue to increase in importance in the UK and Europe.
