The main Nokia seller has been the 5800 Xpress Music in terms of Touch Phones and followed by the 5530 and stuff. And for Samsung the clear domination is clearly the Corby and the Star which you can see everywhere in the metro trains, malls, offices and colleges. SE and Motorola are the one who are left behind in the sub-midrange touch screen devices owing to the fact that they were not able to duplicate the success of the p1i and the E6's success.
Samsung and SE are in the "Others" section, their sales have been so small that they don't deserve to be named, that may change this year. Second half of this year will be an interesting time in the phone business. Nokia hopes on the N8 and Symbian ^3 and who knows what other monster they've got in the pipeline, Apple's got it's 4G, Samsung with Wave and Bada OS and more phones to come, SE will shoot out both Android, Symbian and Windows based smartphones hoping to regain the lost market share. Motorola is back in the game with Android phones and soon Windows as well. LG and HTC are on the rise and they surely would like a piece of the smartphone market too.
As I said, an interesting time awaits.

Someone give me answers. Is canalys american? Where the heck is samsung and sony ericsson?
There is so much competition out there, and so much diversity that is hard to point out witch phones are the best. By this point i think it is ovious that smarphones will be 75% of all phones out there, because of the os's flexibility. Keep in mind the 6120 is a smarphone as is n8.
Anonymous, 09 May 2010how can you sell and not make money are crazy? or jealous? which one?If you sell 100 things for $1 each you make $100 gross, if you sell 10 things for $20 each you make $200 gross.
Maybe it's just a coincidence that Nokia's average handset sales price has been falling for three years ever since the iPhone was introduced, but that's whats been happening.
Anonymous, 09 May 2010Symbian's ability to install native applications puts it in the smartphone class, Sony Ericsso... morecome to symbian nokia is a king no moto, no se or else makes nice phone like nokia and in this post nokia is included means they sell and make money so what about se?

Anonymous, 09 May 2010Well it doesn't actually matter what the general definition of a smartphone is, it depends on ... moreSymbian's ability to install native applications puts it in the smartphone class, Sony Ericsson has sold a number of Symbian phone's(Ainu, Satio) apart from the WinMo X1 it's a bit early for the Android based X10 to show up.
Where Nokia is running into trouble is in releasing all these cheap Symbian "smartphone's" with various features cut down or removed which has resulted in falling profits.
Even though they are selling a lot of "smartphone's? they are not making much money on them.
some people will not comment ... but be strong give your comment it is a forum and a open one
60 pct of smartphones (55 millions units shipments) are touchscreen phones (about 33 millions units) and 50 pct of them (17.5 millions) are from the Almighty Brand.
So the Almighty Brand is not really gonna die, and 5230 is absolutely a smartphone if Canalys also put iphone into their list. Where's SE? Of course they're not there, SE has a unique marketing strategy that can not be detected by Canalys.
someone from se was talking against motorola i just tell him we got the most popular android in the market the milestone beside moto have released more than 7 android phone while se have only one and moto promis 20 android for 2010 include droid 2 and shadow for sur moto is back and rock now the game is between android and iphone s os but android is becoming the best and htc and moto have a lot of android s phone in the market so naturally they make more money still the most impressive is moto where is se? where is x10? now people will believe that milestone get awarded best selling 2009 and new record out of stock in 2.5 hours hello moto
well done moto we are waiting for your new smartphone
Where is Sony-Ericsson? So strange here... . I can't believe your statistic.
rich man, 09 May 2010where SE ??? there no SE in the news T_TSorry but SE only had like 1 smartphone last Q1 of 2009. So maybe they didn't include them or something. But SE did manage to have 292% Year-on-Year growth on smartphones.
Anonymous, 09 May 2010Well it doesn't actually matter what the general definition of a smartphone is, it depends on ... moreIf the 5230 isn't a smartphone, then the entire Nokia catalogue sans N900 shouldn't be counted. Nor should all Android phones, all iPhones, all Palm phones.
Well it doesn't actually matter what the general definition of a smartphone is, it depends on what Canalys define as a smartphone. After a quick glance over the source, they include phones like Nokia 5230 in their analysis, which I wouldn't consider a smart phone. Well maybe bordeline smartphone but I dunno. Sony ericsson did have 292% growth from q1 09 to q1 10, which sounds significant, but you must consider that they only had one smartphone out back then which was the X1, or possibly other models.
