Figures released last week show that for the first time, iPhone sales have been higher than Windows Mobile based phone sales. Gartner reports that Apple took a 12.9% stake in the market in Q3, ahead of Microsoft with 11.1%. Both Nokia and Blackberry were ahead with 49.8% and 15.9% respectively.
Canalys report similar trends, although slightly different numbers (Apple with 17.3% market share ahead of Blackberry!)
Note, that these figures are based on current sales for the last quarter, and donâ€™t indicate total % of all devices (since thereâ€™s still lots of devices from previous quarters out there), but the trend is undeniable (despite what Steve Ballmer may have thought 18 months ago (see half way down the article)).
