    Very surprising, Nokia took a massive dip from 3 to 10.
    Huawei taking Nokia's place at 3rd thanks to affordable Android phones.
    Sony also rising to the occasion.
    HTC losing more and more sales while RIM is holding up surprisingly.
    Motorola is completely out of the top 10.

    Notice how quickly the Chinese are in ascendancy. That means cheaper Windows Phones (and cheaper smartphones in general) are coming soon!
