Nokia takes top market share
13 August 2009 — 5:00 PM
The latest figures suggest consumers recycling mobile phones may be more likely to shop for a replacement from Nokia.
According to the Gartner survey, the Finnish group was able to retain a 36.8 per cent market share during the second quarter of 2009, while its closest rival Samsung took 19.3 per cent.
LG came in third position with 10.7 per cent and the South Korean firm was followed by Motorola, which was found to have managed a 5.6 per cent portion of the sector.
Sony Ericsson took 4.7 per cent of the market, while the remaining percentage was shared between the other providers.
Carolina Milanesi, research director at Gartner, commented that if Nokia wanted to retain its lead, it would need to consider looking at producing a better high-end product, as many of its successes in the quarter had been on cheaper phones.
Some of the Finnish manufacturer's latest models include the N97 and E71, as well as the 5800 and 5530 XpressMusic models.
