Nokia holds on to top spot in global smartphone market Nokia retained the top spot in the global smartphone market, according to iSuppli, even gaining share in the Q2.
Android's growing popularity was evident by gains seen by a few handset makers, especially HTC and Samsung.

Nokia took the top spot with a 39.7 percent share, showing 11.6 percent growth from the first quarter. RIM, the makers of the BlackBerry line, remained in second at 18.5 percent, seeing a slight decline in share despite shipping more devices.

Apple took a dive while remaining in third place at 13.9 percent. The iPhone maker dropped from 15.7 percent last quarter on slowing shipments.

Seeing massive growth thanks to Android sales, HTC shipments grew 63 percent and market share jumped to 8 percent. Samsung saw 55.6 percent growth in shipments, moving up to 4.5 percent market share.

Motorola continued its climb, moving to 4.5 percent on 12.5 percent growth.

Says Tina Teng, iSuppli's senior wireless communications analyst: "From the spectacular growth of HTC and Samsung, to the steady advances of Motorola, Android is the secret sauce for smart phone growth for many companies in 2010."
