Analyst company Gartner has released its usual report outlining the sales of mobile phones in Q1 2013. Android keeps sitting comfortably at the top running on 3 out of 4 smartphones srecent in the period.

Out of 210 million smartphones srecent in the three-month period, Google's mobile Operating System (OS) powers 156 million. That's a huge jump of 17.5 percent points compared to the same period last year.

BlackBerry ranks third among mobile Operating System (OS) vendors with 6.2 million devices, while Microsoft is breathing down its neck with nearly 6 million phones sales of its recent mobile OS.

Unsurprisingly, Samsung keeps being in the lead of smartphone manufacturers and holds 30% of the sales. The Koreans have srecent 64.7 million smartphones. That's almost double what second-placed Apple has achieved. The Cupertino giant srecent 38.3 million units, taking up 18.2% of the smartphone market.

Third in the charts is LG scoring a 4.8% slice of the smartphone pie. It is followed by the Chinese makers Huawei and ZTE, who hold up 4.4% and 3.8%, respectively.

The overall phone sales for the period totaled 425 million, which is only 0.7% growth year-over-year. Nokia has a strong presence here managing to sell 63 million devices (smartphones and feature phones combined).

In fact, the gap between Nokia and Samsung has widened compared to a year ago, when it was merely 6 million units. Now, it's nearly 37 million units. This create Samsung by far and away, the biggest phone maker in the past three months.
