The Gartner report states that: “Apple has sold 17 million iPhones, having an annual increase of 21 percent, but down nearly 3 million units compared to the second quarter of 2011, due to the announcement of the iPhone 4S in October. Gartner believes that Apple will recover in the fourth quarter, given the amount of pre-orders for the iPhone 4S in the first week after its announcement.

Looking at the smartphone market, iPhone OS share has slipped from 18.2% in the second quarter to 15.0% in the third quarter, while the market leader is Android, and Nokia’s Symbian platform will soon be no longer used. In all this we see the huge step of Android who got 52.5% of the smartphone market during the quarter, from 43.4% the previous quarter.
