Symbian continues to gain market share

Symbian yesterday said that global shipments of handsets using Symbian's OS grew 180 percent in the first quarter of this year. The company said a total of 6.75 million handsets shipped last quarter using its software, up from 2.4 million in the first quarter of 2004. Forty-eight Symbian-based phones are now available from vendors such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Siemens, Panasonic, BenQ, Fujitsu, and Motorola. Symbian continues to gain market share in the smart phone OS market thanks in large part to the company's partnership with Nokia.
