A recent marketshare study from Strategy Analytics shows Nokia now leads in 3G handset sales. The company produced 17% of the 3G handsets sold. This is only half of Nokia's share of all markets, which is about 33%. However, the 3G market is still young - it is small and highly splintered. The most remarkable part about Nokia's lead, though it is still small, is that it came from just one handset. Nokia's first 3G handset, the 7600, was a total flop. Until about 2 months ago, Nokia's only other 3G handset was the 6630 smartphone, a relatively small Series 60 smartphone. Nokia now offers the 6680, a successor to the 6630 as well as the N90 imaging phone.
