Apple iPhone Discarded: Once Again!

In a latest research done by IDC’s Mobile Phone Tracker - Apple, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson all lost market share in Q1 2008 year-over-year. Apple’s global handset shipments fell sharply, from 2.3 million units in Q4 2007 to 1.7 million in Q1 2008. Apple’s global market share declined for the first time, from 0.7% in Q4 2007 to 0.6% in Q1 2008.

Apple has been hit hard by stock-outs in North America and lackluster demand for its overpriced iPhone in Western Europe, according to Strategy Analytics.

Now Apple must be hoping to see some favorable developments with the launch of 3G enabled iPhone later in the June.
