Michael Walkley, who is the one behind the brokerage firm's channel checks, says that the June quarter saw slightly increased unit growth globally compared to the March quarter. Strong Asian sales were offset by slower sales in Europe and in the States. In the U.S., the Apple iPhone 4S remained on top although its market share was down at each Stateside carrier offering the device. While global Apple iPhone sales were still strong, thanks to some promotions by carriers, worldwide Samsung and HTC Android models picked up market share from Apple thanks to sales of the Samsung Galaxy S III in Europe and sales of the HTC One series for Sprint and T-Mobile. Speaking of Europe and the Samsung Galaxy S III, the sizzling hot smartphone has a shovel in its hands as sales of the device in the continent are digging a deeper grave in Europe for RIM and Nokia.
