Like it or not, according to Mobinaute, Apple is leading the market for touchscreen devices with about 33%. Combining the sales of the iPhone
and the iPhone 3G
makes for more than 13 million units sold. Still, it looks like Samsung has established itself over a pretty large junk of the touchscreen market too. After it has sold about 10 million touchscreen devices during 2008, it has now been confirmed that the South Korean manufacturer has delivered nearly a total of 25% of the world’s handsets utilizing a touch screen. It seems like Samsung’s most popular phone is the F480
(similar to the Behold
for T-Mobile USA), which has been sold in about 5 million units. The rest of the market is held by the other big manufacturers, the most remarkable of which are LG, HTC and Palm.
