Nearly two of every five cell phones shipped worldwide this spring were Nokias (NOK), a testimony to the strength of the number-one player. Meanwhile, Motorola (MOT) shipments slipped by nearly a third, and smaller competitors took advantage of its weakness.

In the unit and market share table below, note both the quarterly and annual numbers. Sony Ericsson (SNE) showed particularly impressive annual growth, while South Korean players LG and Samsung showed the strongest quarterly market share growth in mobile phones.
