It would be interesting to see how much of "other" is Apple
it would be really intresting to see how many total phones are sold, not just the new ones. Ebay for example I bet sells thousands of phones a month!
Well, Apple has moved about 2 million iPhones, so that would be what? 0.9%
Not really that interesting at all!
NOKIA IS AWFUL. THEY ARE JUST STRAIGHT UP LUCKY TO BE HAVING SUCH SUCCESS. ESPECIALLY WHEN THE ONLY DECENT HIGH END PHONES THEY RELEASE ARE ONLY FOR AT&T. EVERY SINGLE NOKIA PHONE ON VERIZON OR SPRINT IS FREE AND DISGUSTINGLY TERRIBLE. I GUESS MY POINT IS THAT THEY DONT DESERVE TO BE WHERE THEY ARE. LG DESERVES WAY MORE THAN NOKIA AND I'M SUPRISED THEY ARE AT THE BOTTOM...

i guessing u do not do research before u start talking cause if u did, u may not sound so uneducated. Nokia is number 1 due to how much they sale and having a reputation of having good quality..Go talk to verizon and sprint and ask them why they dont sale the best nokia phones..and enough with the LG should be on top..they have one good phone lately....go read a book...
#6 IVE HAD NOKIA PHONES ON MANY DIFFERENT NETWORKS, THE ONLY ONES WORTH ANYTHING ARE THE HIGH END PHONES WITH AT&T. I WORK FOR VZW, WE DONT CARRY A SINGLE PHONE THAT DOESNT COME BACK IN A MANNER OF MONTHS WITH A HUGE PROBLEM. THE STORE I WORK AT DOESNT EVEN SELL NOKIA ANYMORE BECAUSE OF THIS REASON, SO ITS MORE FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAN RESEARCH WHICH IS RESEARCH IN ITSELF YES? PROBABLY MORE IMPORTANT RESEARCH TO BE HONEST.
I have to agree with T-HUFF...Nokia is garbage. You can do all the research you want and you still won't find Nokia sold in the states. That's why they prey on large stupid markets like India, Asia. Althogh very profitable there garbage. They remind me of McDonalds, fat, greasy, and cheap.
this research might be biased, i don't know... what i DO know is, i am asian and from what i can tell you, nokia is loosing footing in sales here in Philippines - mind you second to china, the Philippines is the second largest texting nation in asia. what surprises me though is sony ericsson phones are selling like hot cakes here but they only rank 4th!? where did they base this research? who were the respondents?
WHO KNOWS WHERE THESE BRAINIACS DO THEIR RESEARCH, I THINK IS ALL BS PERSONALLY, I WOULD AGREE THOUGH FROM THE LOOKS OF THIGNS HERE...SONY, LG, SAMSUNG ALL DEFINITELY SELL THE MSOT IN MY EYES.
I am an MBA student and doing a research on breakup of GPRS and Bluetooth Users (Region wise,gender wise,operator wise etc). If u have any relevant information about the same plz share it.my email id is firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi, do you have the exact data on how many Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericson, Samsung that has bluetooth and sold here in the Philippines?
Funny comments there by T-HUFF and some others. It's already been said, Nokia dominates pretty much every market except North America...North America has been difficult because the market is very different, with all the sales going through operators unlike Europe for example. NA also has a different selection of phones, and that is partly also because of what the operators choose as their phones.
You wanna know why Nokia dominates developing markets? It does the basics best; no other manufacturer can produce good basic phones at such a cheap price. Oh, and developing markets are not necessarily 'stupid'...very America centered thinking there. What Nokia hasn't traditionally excelled in are mid-range phones...but looking at their upcoming and recent models, that seems to be about to change. Mind you, I don't have that much to say against any other manufacturer. Sony Ericsson does the best mid-range phones IMO. LG and Samsung are not my cup of tea, they've generally suffered from weak batteries and form. Motorola...I hate the design. Though I have to say I haven't been happy with some of the past Nokia designs either.
But really, to understand why Nokia is so clearly number 1 you have to understand cell phone markets worldwide, not just the US of A.
