Sony creeps into top three smartphone makers

Has RIM, Nokia and HTC to thank for it

Sony is now the world’s third largest smartphone maker, after Samsung and Apple. One might conclude that Sony is making a killing with its Xperia phones, but sadly this is not the case.

Sony’s market share fell from 5 percent in 2011 to 4.8 percent this year. However, HTC, RIM and Nokia tumbled even faster, allowing Sony to overtake them. Nokia’s share dropped from 13.6 percent to 3.4 percent, HTC from 10.3 percent to 4.6 percent, while RIM halved its share, slipping from 9.6 to 4.2 percent.
