Finland is the home to Nokia, and given that Nokia has a pretty loyal userbase, one might have expected the company to do pretty well in its own turf, but apparently that does not appear to be the case. According to a new report by IDC, it seems that Nokia might be taking a backseat to none other than South Korean giant, Samsung, in Finland itself. The report has revealed that Samsung was responsible for the highest number of phone sales in Q1 2013, claiming 36% market share. This is versus Nokia’s own market share of 33% which we guess while it makes them second, they aren’t too far behind.
Interestingly though it seems that the folks in Finland might not appreciate Apple as much as the rest of the world as Apple’s market share was reported to be at 14% with remaining OEMs taking up the remaining market share. We’re sure Nokia is pretty chuffed over the fact that they are ahead of Apple, at least as far as Finland is concerned, and we’re sure those are numbers they’d like to be seeing for other markets as well.
