This is for shipments of phones, Apple are an American company so these figures would take away all there US sales. Shocked by nokia though, keep it up!

LG doesn't deserve to be in 3rd place after their announcement "we won't support ICS", I'd give that to Sony instead for their styled phones.

About iphone?.. I'm actually laughing for being behind even the unknown brand ZTE (unknown to most, not to me).

only 3% market share degradation.. that should be huge success for Nokia.

who didn't yet heard about zte, will hear!!! like huawei or even benq! who heard about huawei or benq before? like professional audio brands, telcommunications professional brands,especially chinese are unknown yet for masses. anyway, zte and huawey are two chinese brands as good as htc wich decided to enter on smartphone and tablets market. all of us will work for chinese very soon. learn chinese very quick, i am very serious, drop english,french or italian classes!!! in romania many learn chinese already because chinese investors are coiming in force here and soon in all europe,especially in constructions,cars and electronics. general manager of mercedes said at the last auto show at beijing:"germans wrote the first part of history of automotive, but the second chapter will be written for sure by chinese". beware europeans!!!
