The Q3 Mobile Numbers: It's All About Apple and Android

Gartner’s latest figures on worldwide mobile phone sales came out today, showing no change in the market’s major story lines, and that’s good news for Apple and Google’s Android. Total mobile phone sales for Q3 were up 35 percent year-over-year, and smartphone sales were up 96 percent. Among device makers, leaders Nokia, Samsung and LG saw continued share erosion, while Apple climbed past RIM into fourth place. Among smartphone operating systems, Android captured 25.5 percent of the market, up from a mere 3.5 percent a year earlier.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
