Gartner Estimates for Worldwide Smartphone Market Share

Apple’s year-over-year share grew from 13 to 17 percent; RIM’s from 16 to 21. HTC grew from 4.5 to 6.5, and Samsung held steady at 3. Nokia dropped from 42 to 39 percent, and the big loser was the “Other” category, which dropped precipitously from 21 to 13 percent.

Now seems like a good time to once again recall the words of Steve Ballmer two years ago:

“There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.”
