Gartner has revealed its final figures for the mobile phone market in 2009, and things weren’t pretty. Nokia was the top brand with 36.4% of the market, Samsung was second with 19.5%, LG was third with 10.1%, Motorola was fourth with 4.8%, and Sony Ericsson was fifth with 4.5% of the market.

The smartphone market was where the action was in 2009 and Apple kicked major butt. Symbian was by far the leading smartphone Os with 46.9% of the market, a marked decline from the 52.4% of the market held in 2008. RIM was third with 19.9% of the OS market.

The iPhone OS was third with 14.4% of the market, fourth was Windows Mobile with 8.7% of the market. Linux had 4.7% of the market and Android has 3.9% of the market. Palm's webOS had only 0.7% of the smartphone market.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
