This is down 6.2 million phones since the same time last year, which is quite a drop, but its an even further drop from the Razr days of four years ago when they sold 46.1 million phones. Apples share in the smartphone market is roughly 16.4 percent for Q1 2010, up from 10.6 percent for the same time last year.&nbsp;</p>
