  1. What is really interesting is Huawei+ZTE climbing from 4.1% to 6.8% whilst HTC seems to have thrown away any market share initially gained through being the lead vendor of Android phones.
    RIM & Nokia’s woes are well documented so nothing surprising there.
    As ChrisG mentions perhaps revenue might be more illuminating.

  2. This table shows units sold. Do they have another showing sales value? I’m sure Apple would show much more than 8% on this one as their unit price is much higher.

  3. Oh where has my Motorola (Brick) gone, I miss it so with it’s send button (over to you Scotty) and it’s 20 min’s talk time. As the adverts showed you needed a hard hat with one and if I remember it also costed £1,600?
