IPhone betas RIM & Motorolla,

Despite the gloomy economic picture and the problems being experienced IPhone has mangae to go beyind the dreams. RIM and Motorolla must be unhappy with the surrent happenings that are taking IPhone with storm surpassed Research in Motion and Motorola to take the number two spot for worldwide smart phone shipments. Motorola, currently holding onto fourth place in smart phones thanks largely to its Linux-based models, recently announced it would move away from using the Symbian OS and focus more on Android.

The introduction of the iPhone 3G in July and Apple’s expansion into many more countries helped propel the vendor to second place globally, taking it above RIM in the quarter and resulting in higher shipments than for all the Microsoft-based smart phones combined

The iPhone now shares 17.3% smart phone market which makes 6,899,010 Iphone units shipped in Q3 2008. Howeevr this is still considerably low and still way below Nokia which still has a 38.9% (15,485,690 units) that Nokia enjoys, but in year over year comparisons Apple grew from 3.6% while Nokia declined from 51.4%.

  • Nokia retains market lead, but share reduced as Apple and RIM make large gains
  • Total worldwide smart phone shipments hit new peak of 39.9 million in Q3 2008
  • US market more than doubles, but decline in Japan contributes to 18% year-on-year fall in Asia Pacific
  • EMEA growth at 21% helped by 43% rise in Central and Eastern Europe, but Western Europe also strong

  • Microsoft share of smart phone market increases despite being overtaken by Apple
