Canalys report found that over 27 million Symbian phones were shipped in Q2
In an era where the market is crowded with a myriad of smartphone platforms, Symbian is still quite in the forefront despite the rash of fierce competition thrown from all directions. Based on a recent report conducted by industry analyst Canalys, there were some impressive figures mentioned about the strong shipment of Symbian powered devices and that it's continuing to push forward as the world's most popular smartphone operating system. The Symbian Foundation made it known to the world that approximately over 25 million Symbian devices were shipped in the Q2 period – marking the first time ever that something like that has been accomplished. When you break down the numbers, it meant that about 300,000 units were shipped per day, 207 per minute, or the blur-like three units per second – now that's continuous! Lee M. Williams, Executive Director of Symbian said, “These figures make for very positive news for the Symbian community. The smartphone market place has become more crowded than ever. So the fact we continue to outsell our competitors by such large margins, combined with all the feature commitments and developments published on our roadmaps, make us highly confident in our outlook and we will continue to embrace the challenges ahead.”
