Top 5 Mobile Phone Brands in Q1’10

Simply put:

  • Nokia: 36.6%, 107.8M
  • Samsung: 21.8%, 64.3M
  • LGE: 9.2%, 27.1M
  • RIM: 3.6%, 10.6M
  • Sony Ericsson: 3.6%, 10.5M

RIM and Sony Ericsson tied for 4th when using the single-digit market share metric, but RIM is in fact ahead since it sold 100,000 more. Bear in mind this includes all mobile phones. If you break out smartphones, the fastest growing segment, the story is a bit different. FYI, the largest mobile phone supplier in the US is… Apple. Source: IDC
