RIM came third in the top as it shipped 7.7 million BlackBerry smartphones, earning 4.3% market share.

The report revealed that Nokia has fallen out of the top five after selling just 2.9 million Lumia smartphones in Q3, with a total of 6.3 million smartphones.

Nokia’s drop “was precipitated by the rise of Samsung (KRX: 005930) and Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) globally and high-growth vendors like Huawei in China, where Nokia was the dominant player as recently as the third quarter of 2011.”

Kevin Restivo of IDC said: “Nokia’s share losses have meant gains for competitors. The company’s transition away from Symbian-powered smartphones to ones shipped with Windows Phone has left ample opportunity for rivals to steal share away from Nokia over the past 18 months. However, the smartphone market is still relatively nascent, which means there’s room for multiple vendors and operating systems to flourish, including Nokia.”
