Apple iPhone takes over the world

Apple iPhone takes over the world

In just two and a half years Apples iPhone has taken just under a fifth of total smartphone sales on the market with a massive 50 percent growth in the year over year sales during Q3 2009.

Research firm Gartner have shown that the iPhone has taken a 17.1% share of the worldwide smartphone market in the three month period ending September. It doesn’t stop there however as the claims are that Apple will end up with an even bigger bite of the Apple (no pun intended) in Q4 due in part to expansion into China and other carriers coming onboard globally.

Apple are now the third largest smartphone company behind Nokia and Research In Motion (RIM) and they shipped over 7 million iPhones in the September quarter, up from 4.72 million in the same time frame in 2008. This related to a whopping 49.2 percent increase in sales.

While this is impressive Nokia have 39.3 percent of the market shipping 16.16 million smartphones which was up from 15.47 from Q3 of 2008 however this relates to a smaller percentage of the overall market as they fell from 42.3 percent in 2008. Gartner says that the 2009 share for Nokia is their worst recorded in company history.

RIM who are responsible for the ever popular Blackberry handsets got 20.8 percent of the total market which grew from 15.9 percent over the 2008 period. Last year they sold 5.8 million smartphones in the same time period which relates to an increase of 46.8 percent.

Nokia will be hard at work figuring out how to reclaw back their lost percentages.
