Apple beats Nokia as top smartphone maker in Australia

The world domination of the iPhone continues as Apple has overtaken Nokia to be the number one smartphone vendor in Australia. According to analysts reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, Apple accounts for 36.5 percent of the smartphone market versus Nokia’s 30.5 percent share.

Nokia became the top dog of Australian smartphones in 2002 when it beat out Palm. Nokia is still the top overall mobile phone maker with 37.6 percent of the total market, but Apple has supplanted Nokia in smartphones three years after the iPhone’s Australian release.

The future will remain competitive in the smartphone market since Android’s market share is currently growing faster than Apple’s. For now, though, Apple is leading the trend in Australia, and the next year will be interesting for smartphone analysts in Australia.
