The Global market for mobile phones market grew 14.6% in the third quarter of this year, the fourth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, according to a recent report from the International Data Corporation (IDC).

IDC says vendors shipped 340.5 million during the July to September timeframe compared to 297.1 million units in the third quarter of 2009.

The following is a list of the top mobile phone sellers in the third quarter of 2010 by units according to IDC. The number in parentheses is the company's marketshare.

  • Nokia - 110.4 million (32.4%)
  • Samsung - 71.4 million (21.0%)
  • LG Electronics - 28.4 million (8.3%)
  • Apple - 14.1 million (4.1%)
  • RIM - 12.4 million (3.6%)
  • All others - 103.8 million (30.5%)

It'd be nice to know what percentage of the phones run Android.

For all the noise we hear about Apple it seems the iPhone is nowhere near as popular as Nokia's or "other's" offerings.
Do you really expect the Apple's iphone at $700 to outsell Nokia/LG's/Samsung whose majority of phones sold retail for between $20 and $600?

The vast majority of the world can't afford to pay $700 for a phone!

JamesK, totally misleading. Those numbers are U.S. only - NOT Worldwide. Suggesting that U.S. numbers can be extrapolated to Global numbers is ridiculous

I do not think you can extrapolate those numbers BUT the US is still a large market and that is a massive market share for any one market!

"According Canalys, some 43.6% of smartphones sold in the US in the third quarter of 2010 were Android devices.

Apple sold only 26.2% of the total US smartphones for the three month period. In terms of units, 9.1 million Android units were sold along with 5.5 million Apple smartphones."

I guess JamesK's link could have been in a separate thread as it is US based only.
