Smartphone market update – Q4 2009

[tweetmeme source=”chenelaine” only_single=”false” service=””]

Analysts in the mobile space have been putting out copious updates with Q4 2009 data.  Here is a quick roundup.  Since I newly became an iPhone fan I poked a bit deeper for iPhone statistics.

Here are my key takeaways (source: IDC)

  • Mobile devices are selling again. Hallelujah!
  • Global smart phone share is growing at a robust pace. In Q4 325.3 million mobile devices were shipped, of which 54.5 million are smart phones (17% share worldwide).
  • Top 3 vendors for this quarter remain: Nokia (38.2%), RIM (19.6%), Apple  (16%). Nokia came back up after a poor Q3.
  • Motorola is suddenly relevant again with the launch of the Droid and the CLIQ/DEXT (4.4% share)
