Samsung Omnia still tops Krussel’s smartphone list, iPhone nowhere to be seen

Krussel has been keeping track of their top devices buying cases for ages now.  They record sales originating in 50 countries on 6 continents and they pride themselves on having a pretty good finger on the pulse of the market.

According to their monthly list of best selling devices the Samsung Omnia has maintained its top dog position which it has held since November 2008, after pushing the October 2008 best seller, the iPhone, to the number 4 spot.  Since then the iPhone has fallen completely of the list, and the Samsung Omnia has ruled the roost, being number 1 in November, January ,February and now March

Of course previously we have seen accusations that the data does not necessarily reflect real popularity, but we have recently seen data that suggest the Samsung Omnia is possibly the most popular Windows Mobile device around, topping smartphone tables all around Europe.

It will be interesting to see whether the Omnia maintains this position once it transitions to a Symbian-powered version in the near future.

The list for March 2009 is as follows:
