Talk about disgrace: Lenovo ships more smartphones than Nokia in Q3

Talk about disgrace: Lenovo ships more smartphones than Nokia in Q3
If a recent report by industry analyst Canalys is to be believed (and why shouldn't we believe it?), things don't look very well for Nokia. Actually, it's worse than we thought. According to the report, Nokia has continued its way to the bottom of the smartphone maker chart in Q3, and has shipped less units than many companies, including Lenovo, which is almost nonexistent in non-Asian markets.

Canalys notes that the top spot is taken by Samsung (surprise!) with its gigantic 32% market share, followed by Apple with 15.5%. Interestingly, Sony has climbed all the way to the third place thanks to decent sales of 8.8 million units, equaling a market share of 5.1%. HTC is fourth (4.8%) and RIM is fifth (4.2%), but where exactly is Nokia in this chart? Well, on our way down towards the bottom, we have to pass by companies like LG, ZTE, Huawei and Lenovo, in order to reach poor Nokia, which, if you remember, has been steadily falling straight from the top for quite some time now, with absolutely no signs of change. Of course, everyone is excited to see what will happen with Nokia's WP8-powered Lumia 920 and 820 smartphones during the Holiday season, but we somehow can't see them eclipse the horde of Android devices and the iPhone 5.

Nokia is let down by MS repeatedly. But dont they receive handout from MS? So they can't complain.

only meego and android can save Nokia

Nokia obviously can't go with Android b-c the contract with MS, and MeeGo is outdated and w/o a viable ecosystem. Sad but the only hope for Nokia is WP8. It's maybe too late for Nokia.

I have this odd feeling that Nokia will falter under Eflop and the exclusivity game shows it.

Talk about disgrace... Does Lenovo have the quality assurance of Nokia? Come on people, Nokia's collaboration with Microsoft just started...have patience. Lenovo stuffs are prone to malfunctions and breakdowns. Even the laptops...most of my friends owning the laptop, Lenovo laptop, complains about it.

Not that you or your friends are wrong, but everyone I've talked to about Lenovo says they make the sturdiest, most reliable laptops out there.

At that price it competes with Asha range of smart featurephones. Technically now S40 too is a smartphone ,as first iphone was also considered as a smartphone and Asha does a lot more. And Asha line is a great success,but not considered as smartphone. Nokia has no real marketed cheap smartphone. Some symbian phones here and there,but even nokia does not market them,instead Ashas are given more importance.

Sony is third and before HTC and RIM ? Yay good news !!

That is a pleasant surprise. I would've thought LG would be there instead. If Sony can get its act together it can be just as formidable as Samsung. They've had their troubles recently, but they have their hands in everything.

with Kazuo Hirai as CEO i believe sony can come back and be on top once again. He was able to turn the ps3 around, so i believe he can turn the whole company around. if i had the money i would go buy the Xperia TL right now but my contract has not ended yet

Oh come on PA enough bashing. Nokia has just started their journey on WP so have patience. apple didn't got great market shares in just some months right? Nokia will rise with WP8 , thats my gut feeling!!

This is the last chance they get. If Nokia don't climb some positions in the next 8 months, they are screwed! But I really think that the new Lumia Phones will, in the worst case, stabilize the Nokia condition. The Lumias will give to Nokia the possibility to get back to the game...

i believe that windows phone is hot in the Americas and Europe but not in Asia. i think what Nokia needs to come back is to get the Asian market as well or else it would not be able to catch up to the rest in the near future
