Nokia and Motorola have 90% of the Chinese smartphone market

According to a study published by CCID Consulting, China’s smartphone market is currently dominated by Nokia and Motorola, the two companies’ products accounting for 89.15% of the total market share.    

More exactly, in the third quarter of 2008, Nokia had a market share of 69.2%, while Motorola’s devices represent 19.9% of the smartphones sold. 

Other manufacturers that worth mentioning are Dopod (owned by HTC), Samsung, Coolpad (a local brand) and Sony Ericsson.

As you can see, LG is the only big name that doesn’t have an important market share in China. 


Obviously, Symbian is the leader when it comes to Operating Systems, while Linux and Windows Mobile follow on the second and the third place. 

Overall, there were 7.474 million handsets sold in Q3 2008 in China – the world’s largest mobile market.
