According to our latest UK handset vendor share by operators report -- published by our Handset Country Share Tracker (HCST) service -- Motorola is showing robust signs of resurrection at major operators in the UK, including O2, Vodafone and Everything Everwhere in Q2 2014, mainly boosted by the growing sales of its affordable Moto G and Moto E line-ups. Motorola is providing these appealing products at relatively competitive price-points through diverse channels from operators to open retailers. If Motorola's emerging success in Western Europe continues in the coming months (even if the face of Apple's new "iPhone 6" range), it will be sure to make Lenovo, the potential new owner, maintain Motorola's brand for the Western European market ahead of their own.

In addition to the UK, Motorola is also enjoying steadily increasing marketshare in other major Western European countries like Germany and France, which our HCST service also covers. These three reports for UK, Germany and France can be viewed at our HCST service website, and are available to clients.

According to our Handset Country Share Tracker (CST) service, the French mobile phone market dipped -6% year-on-year in Q4 2012. This followed flat growth in the prior three quarters of 2012 as the country struggled economically. Free Mobile, a challenger operator with low prices perfectly suited to the tougher economic times, is making a serious dent in the French cellphone market. Its main device partners are Samsung and Apple, who dominate shipments there. This published report, available to clients, tracks mobile phone vendor market share at the four major French operators -- Orange, SFR, Bouygues Telecom and Free Mobile -- from Q1 2009 to Q4 2012. The report is an important tool for measuring the health of individual handset brands at the operator level in Western Europe's third largest cellphone market.
