Q3 global phone marketshare figures out

Published by at

As expected, the global phone market has continued to contract, year on year, in the current economic climate, according to BusinessWire and Strategy Analytics, though Q3 did show a shorter term rise. There's no breakdown in smartphone numbers as yet, though these are due any day now. Highlight stats from this data are that Nokia's overall market share is down a smidgen, while Samsung's is on the rise. It's still worth noting that Nokia out sold the next three manufacturers in the table though, combined. 

(Apple, in case you were wondering, are lumped under 'Others' and shipped 7.5 million phones in the quarter for a market share of 2.5%.)
