Nokia's smartphone market share fell in the first quarter as Samsung and Android continued to dominate, the latest statistics from Gartner have shown.
Gartner's figures showed that Nokia's share of the mobile phone market dropped 4.9 percent over the three month period, despite the firm managing to shift 5.1 million Lumia devices during the quarter. This saw Nokia losing its spot as the eighth most popular mobile phone maker, falling into the number 10 spot.
Gartner credited this steep decline to a drop off in feature phone sales, but added that Nokia will continue to struggle in the smartphone market thanks to the dominance of its Korean rival Samsung. The firm's popularity is unlikely to increase any time soon, despite its launch of the Lumia 925 today.
