Global Smartphone Shipments Jump 43 Percent

Fri Jul 23, 2010 - 3:55 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

Strategy Analytics, a global, independent research and consulting firm, has just released its Q2 2010 Global Smartphone Market Share Update report which showed some interesting trends.

>> The smartphone industry is growing in volume with a 43% jump in global shipment to 60 million units in Q2 2010.

>> Because the emphasis is on global, the leaders were Nokia, RIM (BlackBerry) and Apple.

>> Apple definitely took a hit due to antenna-gate:

"We believe Apple may have lost some heartshare in recent weeks because of its perceived mishandling of the antenna problem, and Apple will have to work hard during the second half of the year to stop lost heartshare converting into lost marketshare."

>> "Sales are being driven at an above-average rate by strong operator subsidies, vigorous competition between high-end vendors and a growing tide of lower-cost models using operating software like Symbian and Android," said Alex Spektor, analyst at Strategy Analytics.
