Worldwide mobile phone sales totaled 286.1 million units in 2Q 2009, a 6.1% decrease from 2Q 2008, according to Gartner, Inc. Smartphone sales surpassed 40 million units, a 27% increase from the same period last year, representing the fastest-growing segment of the mobile-devices market.

Nokia maintained its leadership position, but its portfolio remained heavily skewed toward low-end devices, Gartner said. Samsung and LG both had a very strong 2Q 2009, with sales of 55 million units and 30.5 million units, respectively. Motorola's sales of 15.9 million units were better than expected, but it has lost most of its share of the Western European market, said Gartner, where it sold fewer than 1 million units in 2Q 2009.

Sony Ericsson's market share dropped 2.8 percentage points year-on-year in 2Q 2009 but its volume dropped 41%, which Gartner attributes Sony Ericsson's poor performance to its uncompetitive range of handsets.

For smartphones, Apple had a 509% growth in shipments in 2Q 2009, which helped it maintain the No. 1 position in the smartphone market, where it has stayed since 3Q 2008.
