Apple’s current-generation iPhones are continuing to rack up massive sales, despite widespread expectation that a third edition of the handset is imminent.

According to a study conducted by Gartner, over the last year some four million iPhones were sold worldwide. This compares with 1.7 million during the equivalent period last year.

The boom in demand for the smartphones means that Apple has effectively doubled its share of the market to 11 per cent.

However, this still leaves it some way off more established mobile phone manufacturers.

Nokia retains its status as the industry’s largest player with a 40 per cent share of the sector and 15 million unit sales.

BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion, meanwhile, now commands a 20 per cent share.

According to reports, the third edition of the iPhone is set to be unveiled in July and will be home to a 3.2 megapixel camera and will be available in two editions with 16MB and 32Mb of internal memory respectively.
