On strong iPhone sales in the last quarter, Apple pushed its way into the top five handset manufacturer list, taking the number four spot from BlackBerry maker RIM. Apple sold 14.1 million phones, garnering a 4.1% share of the mobile phone market. RIM, which sold 12.4 million handsets, held onto fifth place on the list, while Sony Ericsson fell out of the top five standings for the first time since IDC started tracking mobile phone vendors in 2004. The top phone maker, Nokia, held its position, selling 110.4 million units, almost as many as the next three manufacturers combined. Samsung held onto the number two spot with 41.4 million handsets, and LG ranked number three with 28.4 million handsets sold.
