Boston -- According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartphone shipments grew an impressive 78 percent annually to reach a record 77 million units in the third quarter of 2010. Apple was the star performer, as it overtook RIM and closed the gap on Nokia.

Tom Kang, Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “Global smartphone shipments grew an impressive 78 percent annually to reach a record 77 million units in Q3 2010. Apple was the star performer during the quarter, as it captured a record 18 percent marketshare, overtook RIM and closed the gap on Nokia.”

Neil Mawston, Director at Strategy Analytics, added, “Global smartphone shipments grew 78 percent from a year earlier, the industry’s fastest rate since the mid-2000s. However, the surging volumes are placing heavy demands on component suppliers and moderate shortages of select components are emerging ahead of the Q4 holiday season.”

Other findings from the research include:

* Nokia shipped record smartphone volumes of more than 26 million units, but this was not sufficient to prevent its global marketshare dipping to a low of 34 percent;

* RIM continues to be hampered by a limited presence in the high-growth touchscreen segment and consequently its global smartphone marketshare has edged down from 20 percent to 16 percent during the past 12 months.
