Xperia market shareAnalysts from comScore have released the latest smartphone market share trends for the top five European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom). The data which spans the three months to July 2011 shows that the Xperia smartphones are comfortably in third position when it comes to Android market share, behind HTC and Samsung.

The results differ from market-to-market with Sony Ericsson holding the largest Android market share in Spain (18.8%) and lowest share in Italy (8.3%). Taking the five largest European countries together (EU5) gives SE a market share of 15%, behind HTC at 35% and Samsung at 32%. During this three month period, SE only had its two flagship devices in the market (the Xperia arc and Xperia PLAY). With the breadth of newer Android Xperia models now being released, Sony Ericsson will be hoping for a larger increase in share at the next survey.

    SE have to put more effort go gain market shares~~~!
    Far behind from Samsung and HTC~~~!
    Keep updating software is helping SE a bit recently. And hardware need to catch up faster as SE is losing high end dual core device market. Dual core market is getting smaller day by day; user upgrade to SGII and HTC sensation, SE have to put more effort. 

  • SE has to continue as they do NOW and nothing else…
    they have a very good stragedy… if they would come with dualcore phones too early, the whole firmware update concept they are working with at the moment wouldn’t be possible anymore…

    they will bring dualcore phones if the chips are small enough and if they need less enough power to bring them in their mini-series also to continue their unified software strategy… if they start with ONE dualcore phone, they have to bring ALL further phones with Dualcore….

    and very important: they wait until android itselve supports dualcore…. at the moment that isn’t the case… just in synthetic benchmarks the dual core phones are much faster but in normal usage there is no BIG difference between well optimized xperia singlecore phones and dualcore phones like sensation or galaxy S 2

    just faster loading times but this is because of faster flash memory and not because of 2 CPU cores ;)
