The mobile brands that sell the most
The mobile phone market is still going strong and with fierce competition. The consulting firm Gartner has just released its report on the sale of terminals worldwide during the third quarter of this 2004. In total, 167.1 million phones have been sold, representing an increase of 26 percent over the year. past. Among the brands it continues as a leader Nokia, with more than 30 percent of sales, recovering from the drop at the end of last year thanks to its new terminals. Behind the Finnish company, Samsung beats Motorola which completes the podium, both slightly exceeding 13 percent. More distant are other companies; Siemens continues to decline, while LG begins to emerge, overtaking a surprisingly downcast Sony Ericsson. Do these percentages respond to the real quality of the brands? Perhaps the explanation for the figures obtained by Gartner has to be found in the marketing, in the agreements with the different operators and in the number of terminals that each brand puts on sale. Although, still, I'm still surprised by the low share of Sony Ericcson.
