Garter's recently published  report on the Mobile  Statistics  provides some interesting insights,The top three phone manufacturers were Nokia, in the lead although the troubled Finnish company slid from 36.4% to 28.9%. Samsung was second on 17.6% (down 2%), followed by LG, who experienced a more worrying drop from 10.1% to 7.1%.

According to Gartner, Google held a share of 3.9% in 2009. In 2010, it passed Microsoft (8.7% in 2009), iOS (14.4%), and Blackberry (19.9%). In 2010, Android accounted for 22.7% of the global smartphone market, behind Symbian, which dropped from 46.9% in 2009 to 37.6% in 2010. Blackberry dropped to 16.6%, iOS climbed to 15.7% and Microsoft declined to 4.2%.

"In the smartphone operating system (OS) market, Android grew 888.8% in 2010 and moved to the No. 2 position," Gartner said. "Android sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 continued to be driven by broad availability of many high-end products from HTC (Desire range, Incredible and EVO), Samsung (Galaxy S) and Motorola (Droid X, Droid 2)." Android platform sales reached 67.2 million units in 2010, up from 6.8 million in 2009. Total smartphone sales came in at 296.6 million units, up from 172.4 million in 2009.

The entire cell phone market hit a new high of 1.6 billion units in 2010  while  Smartphone sales to end users were up 72.1 percent from 2009 and accounted for 19 percent of total mobile communications device sales in 2010. Nokia's market share dropped dramatically from 36.4% in 2009 to 28.9% in 2010, but the company was still able to increase its cell phone sales slightly to 461.3 million devices. Samsung was second with 281.1 million phones, followed by LG with 114.2 million , and RIM with 47.4 million.

Sales of the iPhone 3GS and the huge numbers the iPhone 4 managed helped Apple to increase its global mobile market share from 2.1% to 2.9%.

That moved it ahead of Sony Ericsson and Motorola, who slumped from 4.5% to 2.6%, and 4.8% to 2.4% respectively"Apple sold 46.6 million units in 2010, 87.2% growth from 2009," Gartner said. "This growth is largely due to expansion into new countries and the ending of exclusivity deals, which has made the iPhone available through 185 communication service providers (CSPs) around the world. The end of exclusivity deals also encouraged CSP competition on tariffs and data plans, making the total cost of iPhone ownership more in line with other high-end smartphones."

Nokia became world No.1 mobile phone maker in 1998, a position it still holds. Last year, it sold 432 million devices — more than its three closest rivals combined.But market share has plunged — from a high of 41 per cent in 2008 to 31 per cent in the last quarter of 2010. And it is no longer the innovative trailblazer.Meanwhile in contrast the first quarter of 2010, was Apple’s strongest quarter yet, which placed the company in the No. 7 position with a 112.2 per cent increase in mobile devices sales. “Growth came partly from new communication service providers in established markets, such as the UK, and stronger sales in new markets such as China and South Korea,”
