June 1, 2004

Reuters/CNN reports that according to a Q1 2004 survey, Nokia has overtaken PalmOne as the world’s top seller of “mobile computers”. In other words, smartphones are outselling PDAs and Nokia’s Series 60 smartphone platform is proving to be the most popular choice with consumers.

Interesting stats from the article:

  • The total mobile computer market grew by 41% to 5.93 million units
  • Nokia sold 1.67 million smartphones, up from 900,000 a year earlier
  • Nokia increased its market share to 28.2%, up from 21.5% in Q1 2003
  • PalmOne’s share dropped to 16.8% from 26%
  • Hewlett-Packard (3rd worldwide based upon iPaq) saw its market share slip to 9.7% from 10.6%

Count one significant battle victory for Series 60 in the still raging smartphone wars.
