Leading mobile phone makers lose market share

The world's leading mobile phone makers are losing market share to non-brand manufacturers, according to research. Analysts at Gartner say smaller, Asian companies accounted for a third of worldwide handset sales in July, August and September. Nokia is still the biggest seller of mobiles, followed by Samsung and LG. Meanwhile, Google's Android operating system has sharply increased its share and is now the second most popular mobile operating system after Symbian.
