Nokia: Sorry Apple we beat you by a mile

Sorry folks, you won’t believe this but it’s true that Nokia’s handset sale is way ahead of any other competitor in the world. Last year alone, Nokia sold a total of 432 million handsets, which is 17 times more than what apple sold last year. Apple sold a total of 25 million handset last year. It’s sad to see Motorola loose the ground, they stand at number 5. In fact the faired poor compared to the year 2008 in which they sold 8% of handset.

According to Communities Dominate blog , Here are the TOP 10 Handset makers.

ALL HANDSET MAKERS TOP 10:

1 - Nokia . . . . . . . 432 Million 38 %
2 - Samsung . . . . 227 Million 20 %
3 - LG . . . . . . . . . . 117 Million 10 %
4 - SonyEricsson . . . 57 Million 5 %
5 - Motorola . . . . . . . 55 Million 5 %
6 - ZTE . . . . . . . . . . 50 Million 4.5%
7 - Kyocera . . . . . . . 45 Million 4 %
8 - RIM . . . . . . . . . 35 Million 3.5%
9 - Sharp . . . . . . . . 29 Million 2.6 %
10 - Apple . . . . . . . . 25 Million 2.2 %
Others . . . . . . . . . . 56 Million 5%
TOTAL . . . . . . . . 1,130 Million (1.13 Billion)

From the above data you can see where Apple stands. It has a total of 2.2% market share compared to 38% share by Nokia. From a revenue standpoint iam not sure if Nokia made more than Apple considering the high price of iPhones. In addition, Steve jobs claimed they made more money than any other handset vendor in the world. Sounds like a stretch.

Nokia leads the pack even in the Smartphone arena, Apple stands at Number 3.

From a Smartphone standpoint:
1 - Nokia . . . . 68 Million 39%
2 - RIM . . . . . 35 Million 20%
3 - Apple . . . . 25 Milllion 15%
4 - HTC . . . . . 8 Million 5%
5 - Others . . . 35 Million 21%
Total . . . . . . 175 Million

So looks like all those people who doubted the capability of Nokia to withstand the newcomers like Apple and Google, you are wrong. Nokia is ready for the game and is doing good compared to all their competitors. In addition,Nokia is all set to open source their flag ship Symbian OS this Thursday

Nobody is bothered about the numbers. Whats important is the revenue generated from selling handset and apple has generated enough revenue selling iPhone. To me this is what matters!
