Apple may be slowly releasing the stranglehold Nokia has on the European market. According to ad network inMobi, the Q2 2011 results show Apple has edged out Nokia in terms of ad impressions. Both Apple and Nokia logged over 2 billion ad impressions in the quarter, but Apple snagged 90 million more than the struggling Finnish handset maker. Apple's European ad share grew to 19.5%, while Nokia's fell to 18.7%. It's a small lead but a significant one. Nokia has been the market leader in Europe for years and this is one sign that its lead is beginning to diminish.
