As per IDC 39.9% of Android shipments were due to Samsung while other OEMs secured single digit shares.

Windows Phone also rose significantly by 156% y-on-y although it’s still sub 5% market share, something Microsoft will look to change with its acquisition of Nokia. Nokia powered 93.2% of all WinPho shipments during the quarter.

The average selling price of smartphones fell 12.5% to $317. The arrival of phablets is the other major news. The ASP of phablets is $443, down 22.8% from 2012 when it was $573.
