A very positive outcome of how the Finnish company now looks towards US market is very evident in its Q3 of 2013. Latest reports show that Nokia has been able to capture a record 4% market share for the first time in one of the most major markets of smartphones.
Fighting along with Apple and Samsung, who has almost grabbed up 33% of the market share each, Nokia’s record is not something ignorable when there are other giants in the field like HTC, Huwaie, Motorola, ZTE etc.

For now though the top spot is for the virtual duopoly holders: Apple & Samsung, but according to a Market Monitor service; Apple had an advantage due to its September launching of the 5s and 5c. The booming sales of the iPhones have thus easily carried Apple to the first spot making Samsung second. The third position however goes to LG though their Q2 sell of 2013 has slipped from 10% to 9%.
Right now Nokia smartphones are being carried by a number of carriers in the US. AT&T currently has 5 Lumia models and is ready to bring on the Lumia 1520 too. Besides, Verizon Wireless is carrying 2 models, 3 models with T-Mobile, and MetroPCS and Aio Wireless carry 1 model each of Nokia.
