Global handset shipments jumped 35% Y/Y to 417M units in Q3, driven by strong sales of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone and Android-based (GOOG) smartphones, research firm Gartner says. Nokia (NOK) kept its market leading position but its share fell by nearly a third; Research In Motion (RIMM) also lost share. Smartphone sales nearly doubled from a year ago.
