Samsung doubled up on Apple last quarter for smartphone shipments Samsung doubled up on Apple last quarter for phones shipped, becoming the top mobile phone seller in the world.
The company knocked Nokia from its place at the top after over a decade.

Apple sold 26 million iPhones last quarter, a huge amount but less than expected. In the previous quarter, the company sold over 35 million.

Samsung, for its part, says it shipped over 10 million of the new Galaxy S III, with a total of 50.5 million smartphone units shipped for the quarter.

Globally, the company sold 93 million phones and now has a market share of 25.7 percent. Apple, which only sells one phone, has a global share of 7.2 percent.

Talk about recession in US !!!

I am hazarding a guess that of the 26 million units of iPhone 75 % were within US. Either there are still plenty of people doing really well or their priorities are really skewed to spend for such an over priced and highly restricted device.
