Apple Definitely Not #1

Cellphone Vendor Share: Samsung and Nokia Lead the Way


According to Strategy Analytics, “285 million cellphones were shipped worldwide in Q3 2007, up 12% year-over-year. Demand was strong in emerging markets, particularly Asia and Africa. Nokia sold a record 112 million handsets; its 39% share is more than the next three brands combined. Samsung hung on to 2nd position, as 3G shipments surged. Motorola continued to stabilize, due partly to a ramp-up in Razr 2 volumes. Sony Ericsson lost slight momentum, while LG maintained its recent upward track. As predicted by Strategy Analytics, Apple quadrupled sales, reaching a 0.4% global share. Industry-wide, Strategy Analytics forecasts 330 million units globally for Q4 2007.”
