Apple eating away at Nokia's European dominance

Nokia remains the dominant smartphone provider in Europe but competitors are whittling away at its European marketshare, the latest July stats from comScore reveal.

Its MobiLens survey for July 2010 shows that 51.2% of smartphone-owning respondents in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy have Nokias. Symbian marketshare has declined, down 14.4% since July 2009. Meanwhile Apple’s iOS and Android grew by 5.3% and 5.6% respectively.

In the US, Apple holds 23.8 percent smartphone OS usage, just behind BlackBerry with 39.3 percent. Similar in the UK, where iOS holds 29.6 percent; that climbs to 31.6 percent in France. In both territories, Symbian OS smartphones dominate with just over a third of the market.
