From ABI Research:
Global shipments of mobile handsets grew 19% year-over-year during Q1 2010.
In total, 303 million mobile handsets shipped worldwide during Q1 2010. This puts annual global mobile handset shipments on pace to reach about 1.3 billion in 2010. Strongest handset shipment growth was seen in the Middle East and Africa (20% year-over-year) followed by the Americas, particularly the US (11%). Europe, on the other hand, is languishing with single-digit growth. It is also notable that 3G handset shipments eclipsed 2G handset shipments globally.
Nokia held one-third (34%) of global mobile handset market share during Q1 2010. New smartphones such as the N8 are helping Nokia to shore up its handset portfolio, according to ABI Research analysis, as its loss of traction in the smartphone sector hit sales hard. Revamped efforts in Nokia’s Symbian product line are intended to help it regain momentum.
