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 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.
