According to market research firm Gartner, worldwide mobile phone sales declined 6% to 286 million units in the second quarter.   However smartphone sales were a bright spot posting a 27% gain.  Smartphone penetration was 14%, up from 10% a year ago.  The chart below shows the change in smartphone share by manufacturer over the last year.  Although Nokia still dominates with 45% share, Apple was the big winner last year with an increase in share from 3% to 13%.

Gartner also states that Palm is in 10th place in the smartphone market and sold 205,000 Palm Pre units in Q2.  Please note that this data from Gartner is based on the number of units devices sold, a much different methodology than is used to calculate share of mobile web usage each month in our Mobile Metrics Report.
