    Nokia Regains Biggest Manufacturer Title in Finland, Improvement in Sales seen in UK and Italy
    Nokia lost the crown of being the biggest smartphone manufacturer in its homeland long time ago. However, it seems everything changed with the introduction of Lumia devices. International Data Corporation (IDC) released some figures for Q2 2013 which shows that Nokia managed to regain the title of the biggest smartphone manufacturer in Finland with 36 percent market share. It’s not just Finland; Nokia is performing well in UK and Italy as well.

    Let’s just start with Finland first, the company gained the top spot by shipping 210,000 smartphones followed by Samsung who managed to ship only 200,000 units with 34 percent market share. The biggest loser in the Finnish market is Apple whose market share fell to 7 percent with 41,000 devices. If you don’t know, the Cupertino giant shipped 82,000 in the first quarter with a 14 percent market share.

    In case of UK, Nokia managed to double its smartphone sales to 396,000 devices. Unfortunately, this still did not help the company a spot in the top 5 brands in the country.

    In Italy, the company saw a 17 percent growth and managed to capture the second place with Samsung Electronics on the top spot.

    In total, IDC reports that Nokia smartphone sales in Western Europe rose to 1.8 million devices in the second quarter from 1.6 million in the first quarter., which is almost 11 percent less than the previous year.

    It seems as Nokia may have its good days ahead and may capture the lost market share, as the company is rumored to launch a phablet featuring quad-core processor and Windows Phone 8 GDR3 update next month.
