Overall smartphone sales also grew and they now make up about 26 percent of all mobile phone sales. Nokia’s Symbian emerged as the big loser in the quarter, losing 20 percent year-over-year to end the quarter with a meager 16.9 percent share.

RIM also shed 4.4 points to 11 percent of the overall smartphone market. Interestingly, RIM dropped to 10 percent in the US market, which was traditionally its home turf.
