In Western Europe, Samsung dethrones Nokia in feature phones sales

Some time in the past, the word “mobile phone” was almost synonymous with “Nokia”. But things are changing fast for the Finnish Company. Mobile-review.com just reported that Samsung has surpassed Nokia in Mobile phone sales of FEATURE phones in Western Europe.

Samsung sold 12.2 million phones to Nokia’s 9.1 million in the 1st quarter. This is quite alarming because, this record by Samsung was done in Western Europe which is literally the backyard of Nokia. Samsung phones’ parent company is in far away South Korea. This figure, according to mobile review, is 18% decline for Nokia from the previous year. Sony Ericsson sold 3.7 million phones in the Q1, but this is for both Feature and Smartphones.

Now, mind you, this figure is only for feature phones. Nokia still reigns supreme in Smart phone sales in West Europe. But then, Apple and others are catching up gradually. It is good to appreciate that Europe’s leading Economy is in Western Europe. Find below the leading Smartphone sales in Western Europe for your perusal. Only four manufacturers are quoted.

Nokia………………………….4.9 Million
Apple iPhone………………3.0 million
RIM Blackberry…………..2.4 million
Samsung …………………..0.3 million
