The recent iSuppli report titled ”Mobile Handset Industry Foresees End of the Recession” puts Apple at position number 6 for worldwide handset shipment for quarter one in 2010. Apple is behind Nokia, Samsung, LG, SonyEricsson and RIM.
Apple’s standing is no surprise as the data shows shipment for all types of handsets while Apple has all along focus on the smartphone segment with its iPhone 3G and 3GS.
Overall worldwide shipment rose 13.8 percent over the same period last year, with notably SonyEricsson and Motorola showing drop instead. Motorola’s performance was a surprise to analysts as many has predicted its Android powered Droid could be doing better.
