A new Gartner study reports that the iPhone’s market share doubled from 5.3 percent in Q1 2008 to 10.8 percent in Q1 2009.

That’s amid a 12.7 percent gain in smartphone sales to 36.4 million worldwide, and an overall drop of 8.6 percent for all cell phone sales during the same period. Research in Motion, makers of the BlackBerry, also saw tremendous gains, from 13.3 percent share in Q1 2008 to 19.9 percent in Q1 2009.

Meanwhile, Nokia saw a mild drop in smartphone sales from 45.1 percent to 41.2 percent worldwide, according to the report. That latter figure is always a surprise to U.S. viewers like us, since Nokia barely sells any smartphones here in the U.S.

The excellent Nokia E71x could finally change that, though–assuming smartphone buyers in AT&T stores stop at the counter long enough to see it before walking out with an iPhone.
