Thanks very handy data.
But it is not the total view as you claim. I think this data doesn't tell the whole truth. By only reporting on phone sales statistics, and not usage statistics you get a biased view of what is important.
The truth is most mobile phones "accessing" the mobile web (off-deck) in North America are iPhones and Android phones. For many publishers that I deal with, Apple and Android makes up to 70% of their mobile web usage. So to play down the influence and importance of building experiences for these specific handsets is further spreading doubt and misinformation.
Focus on usage data, and not just sales data and you're better able to determine what to build for now.
