Nokia vs apple . . Who win? what do you think? More than 30 models of cell phones vs only 4? what do u think dude?
Nokia phones are affordable. Thats the key factor. Maximum people don't need unnecessery high end features
Wats 7266.5 ..is it the total no of phones sold by sony ericsson. I thought sony ericsson arc would have better sales number to show.

It would comfort my mind if they did at least an open-ended interviews or questionnaires showing that they did a field experiment to validate this graph.

An experienced user in mobile would know that specifications are not everything because the real world results greatly differs from those synthetic benchmarks. It's quite subjective really, but the only way for the average buyers to know is to test each one. The iPhone is very expensive, but the UI experience is a pleasure to use, the Androids usually boasts the latest tech, Nokia phones boasting a much more superb build quality from the rest and BlackBerry phones has it's own specialized quality too. In the end, it's up to the end users' tastes.
How precisely does an end user purchase 0.3 or 0.8 of a phone? Why the fraction and what does this mean? I would speculate this to be units purchased as a proportion of units shipped versus returns or some other variable. Therefore the market share percentage is a gross estimate rather than a net figure. Please at least explain the significance of this if you will publish two conflicting market reports, rather than allow readers to reach their own (ill informed) conclusions.
This report made me confused each analyst have their own reports which differs from one to another don't know which one to believe but i think the wise customer chooses the phone based on its specifications and how it will help him daily not on how it market share thats why i don't care about these fan wars i simply buy for the phone which deserves my hard-earned money
Hello sony ericsson! could please consider making a low end droids with good specification -hopefully a reasonable price- something like samsung galaxy ace,fit,mini for example?! or are we going to see the ericsson's scenario?!!
Bada OS has more market share than the Windows Mobile/Phone OSes because its better than it and is also better than symbian in terms of usability.its like androids smaller brother.
What makes up the other 74,000 phones shipped from Nokia that makes up the number to num 1 spot? Meego and Win7?
Title "Nokia still top smartphone maker" is misleading. Report clearly says: In terms of overall market share.
It means that Nokia is the leader in the dumbprone market, but NOT in the smartphone market.
Apart from the Symbian Nokia has the best of everything to offer including after sales service. Samsung, blackberry and Sonyericsson sucks when it comes to after sales service atleast in India. Also Nokia is very promising in terms of hardware while Samsung and LG are not even in their top end models. Apple is just have everything to offer in their own world of "i" but the price also feels to be out of the world. So it always seems to be a gadget of some other world.
If there's one thing I like about Nokia, it always seems to induces responses of hatred as if it's a knee-jerk reaction. Anyway, cheers to Nokia. Hopefully their WP7 phones still retains the flamboyant and unique designs that Nokia did with their previous Symbian phones.
