A smartphone market research reveals that Symbian has again increased its share. During the first quarter of the year a total of 10.7 million smart phones were shipped - almost twice as much as last year's 5.9 million devices.

Symbian's market share is now at 61.4 percent compared to 40.5 percent a year ago. Microsoft faced a 44 percent growth but decreased from 23.1 percent to 18.3 percent of the whole market and PalmSource lost both market share and volume, ending at 10.5 percent.
