The Gartner Second Quarter Report

August 23, 2007 in Wireless Industry News

Gartner is a market-research firm that comes out with nice statistics for mobile phone sales each quarter. And last quarter (Q2), the following happened…

  • Nokia sold almost 100 million mobile phones (99.96) and gained 3 points of market share, to 36.9%
  • Motorola sold 39.48 million phones, but lost 7 points of market share: now sitting at 14.6%
  • Motorola regained the #2 phone manufacturer title due to sales
  • Samsung is back in third place, with 36.19 million phones sold. Market share is at 13.4%, a shade below Motorola
  • Sony Ericsson gained almost 3 percentage points of market share to 9%
  • LG increased market share to 6.8%
  • The Asia Pacific market took the lead in percentage sales growth, with 40.7% more handsets sold from last year
  • Sadly, in North America phone sales only grew by 7%

According to MarketWatch, Motorola regained its second place status from price cuts in Western Europe, among other regions. Uh oh – isn’t this what caused the downfall of the RAZR?

MarketWatch: Handset sales up 17% in 2nd quarter, says Gartner
