Motorola’s overall mobile phone market share declined 3 percentage points, from 12 percent in Q2 2010 to 9 percent in Q2 2011. The company’s share of the smartphone market also declined from 15 percent to 12 percent. Motorola’s year-over-year unit share of Android OS sales halved from 44 percent in Q2 of last year to 22 percent in Q2 of 2011, as Samsung and LG both experienced substantial gains.
The piece uses an Andy Rubin quote to claim Motorola has great opportunity in Prepaid Smartphone Market. As do Samsung and LG, I assume – both of whom have had huge YoY growth in the space.
