I am no fan of Apple products as many here know...but I have had a question about Apples iPhone....

How much market share does the iPhone command?
The device, compared to other devices sold those years...not by OS.

What I have noticed, is media, tech blogs etc, that when they state the iPhones market share percentage, they do so in the context of OS share......at the moment roughly 25% of the market?

But a much more interesting, an impressive figure to know, would be how much market share an actual device has...not OS....

I would love to know how many iPhones sold, Iphone 3G and iPhone 3GS, compared to other brand models for the last couple years......I think the results would be even more startling, showing the iPhones dominance.

Anyone know these stats, or where to find them?

I know for a fact (from multiple site's like engadget and gizmodo) that apple has sold over 50million iphone's worldwide. Read a article recently on engagdet which showed that apple has 25% marketshare in US under smartphone's.




Do whatever you want to do man.

This figure changes completely when moving away from the US, where Nokia has a much stronger presence. Elsewhere Nokia sells smartphones by truckloads.

Also, most reports tell us the % of either mobile data requests to web servers, or % of advertising served to mobile web browsers. In this case the iPhone commands a higher number than others because of the better experience, so people tend to use it more for mobile browsing - and consequently for serving advertsing.

Reality is, Nokia still sells Symbian devices like crazy. I am not saying Symbian is a good smartphone OS, or if people buying these devices even know they are smartphones, then it's another question.

Yup.....but various devices......

Does Nokia sell any particular 1 device really well...as well as an iPhone?

Obviously it is far more profitable for a company to design just once, use the 1 same mould and build in bulk......as opposed to design multiple times for multiple devices, have to redisgn and build the manufactering mould for the assembly line, and only use it to build a small amount of devices

Nokia sells plenty Symbian mobiles...but none of them appear even close to the popularity of the iPhone.

The N95  has apparently sold more than any one particular model of iPhone

As the mighty Bean says, Nokia still have it

In the US maybe they sell: more blackberrys and iPhones but worldwide, Nokia still have the market.  I still see more 5800s, N95s, N96s, N97s in the workplace today vs iPhones

http://techcrunch.com/2010/05/19/iphone-android-25-percent/

techcrunch reported that iPhones only make up 15.6% of the sales for the first quarter this year, vs Android on 9.6%.  The only crazy thing is that 9.6% is apparently up 8% from the start of the year, so it's rocketing through
