Strategy Analytics has released their latest report that shows global handsets shipments reached 390 million in Q3 2011, Nokia led the group with 106.6 million – representing 27.3%. It must also be said that Nokia’s market share has slipped 6% since last year. As for Samsung, they have increased their market share by 1.3% since Q3 2010 to have 22.6% market share and shipped 88 million handsets. In Q3 Apple managed to ship 17.1 iPhones and captured 4.4% market share – surely this will rise in Q4 with the iPhone 4S sales. ZTE made the cut and have a market share of 4.7% by shipping 18.5 million devices. Sadly, RIM is nowhere to be seen here, even with their new BlackBerry 7 devices.
Here’s the top 5: Nokia, Samsung, LG, ZTE and Apple (slipped to 5th place).
