Apple iPhone 4S leads UK Christmas smartphone sales

Apple iPhone 4S

Apple's iPhone is leading UK Christmas smartphone sales, while Nokia's Lumia failed to even make the top 10.

Five versions of the iPhone made the top 15 list of best-selling phones through UK mobile networks in the four weeks to 9 December, according to reports in the Financial Times citing data from research firm GfK.

The iPhone 4S was the best selling phone during the four weeks, accounting for almost a quarter of all smartphone sales, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S II.

However, sales of Nokia's first Windows Phone handset, the Lumia 800, were disappointing and the phone failed to break into the top 10 handsets during its first weeks on sale in November and December.

This is despite the fact that Nokia is rumoured to have spent £20m on advertising.

RIM's BlackBerry phones took three of the top 10 spots in the first week of December with different Curve models. The Bold 9900 did not appear in the Top 10.
