Nokia Still Tops Global Market Share Chart After Q3 2008

With the barrage of smartphones hogging the cellular spotlight, it might come as a surprise that Nokia is still number one globally with its far-from-sexy operating system, Symbian. According to numbers compiled by research firm IDC, Nokia’s global market share after the third quarter was 39.4 percent, while Samsung came in second with 17.3 percent and Sony Ericsson in third with 8.6 percent. Motorola and LG came in behind the top three with 8.5 percent and 7.7 percent, respectively. According to the Boy Genius Report, all of the top five, except for Motorola, saw net gains in the past 12 months. Motorola, unfortunately, slipped a staggering 31.7%. Ouch!
