Canalys have released some interesting research into sales of smartphones during the fourth quarter of 2007.

Nokia remains at the top with 52.9% of the market, followed by Blackberry with 11.4% and then a new entry in the top 3 edging out Motorola is the iPhone with 6.5% of the worldwide market.

2007 was a good year for the Smartphone with 115 million shipped which equates to a 60% increase. The largest region by sales is Asia Pacific, where Nokia dominates with 50%, whereas in the USA where Nokia is traditionally weaker the iPhone had an impressive 28% market share.

The iPhone had a strong showing across Europe considering it was only released in the 4th quarter, but the Nokia remains dominant with a growing popularity for the Blackberry across Europe
