I'd be happy to increase Nokia's sales figures by buying a Nokia 920 Windows phone, but since they've signed ATT as their exclusive carrier in the U.S. they've ruled me out as a customer.

Nokia has a phone on every carrier, not an AT&T exclusive only the 920 device itself is

822 on Verizon is only "a single step down" and actually better than it in some ways

the 820 and 810 on sprint and t-mobile are pretty bad compared to the rest of the lineup however, still great compared to most android phones though and much better deal than ROM or Apple haha

So I'm just kind of curious now where RIM stands in all of this?

Samsung - 29
Nokia - 24
Apple - 10
ZTE - 6
HTC - 4

RIM - 27(?) :-/

LQ is 4%

HTC is unlisted which is why I aksed about it below but it must be 3% or less to not get mention and I *know* they must have greater share than RIM so I'd not be surprised if RIM was 2% or even less than 1% haha

I find it funny how "good" the iPhone is supposed to be and how the media raves about its sales yet apple only has 10% share in the phone market.

Have an original Galaxy S, so does my wife. Just bought a Samsung ATIV SmartPC 700T Pro tablet/laptop and love that beyond expectations. My next purchase will most likely be an upgrade to the Galaxy S4 sometime next year.

Happy it's working this way. And REALLY happy it's not Apple at the top, or anywhere close. :)

What's even more surprising is that Nokia still holds a 24% market share.

You don't get outside the US much I see. Most devices are either Blackberry or Nokia everyhwere except the US.

I meant based upon how poorly the company is doing. I know that everyone in the rest of the world has a Nokia phone.

Well, it's only doing poorly compared to what it has done in the past; Nokia still sells a lot of phones. Our business world doesn't judge itself by quantity though, it judges itself by growth, so if it's not getting bigger, it's "doing poorly".

I am in the Caribbean, and I do see a lot of BBs, LG, Samsung, and Nokia -less and less as time goes by though.
