One in four smartphones sold in Jolly Ol' England over the last 4 weeks was the Apple iPhone 4S
Samsung Galaxy S II while three versions of the BlackBerry Curve cracked the top ten. The latest RIM flagship model, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 had increased sales, but could not make it into the top ten. No Nokia model made it into the top ten despite a $30 million advertising campaign and the launch of the Finnish manufacturer's new Windows Phone 7.5 powered Nokia Lumia devices. According to the report, the Nokia Lumia sold no better during the 4 week period, than the company's line of featurephones. Still, it is early in the game for Nokia's Windows Phone models and they could end up getting some traction in the UK yet.
As has been the general trend everywhere, smartphone use has picked up sharply in the country. The number of smartphones in use has doubled between February 2010 and August 2011, reaching 45% of all UK cell phone users. As for the Apple iPhone, it is said to have a leading 43% marketshare in the country last month, outselling all Android models in November.
