PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Remember when Apple surpassed Nokia to become the world's best-selling smartphone manufacturer? Well, Apple only had one quarter to enjoy this title, since Samsung just soared past them by quadrupling its smartphone shipments, making Samsung the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Update: As was noted in the comments, Apple also uses shipments - they just call them sales. Straight from their SEC filing.

you don't quadruple shipments if resellers can't get rid of these things.

You forget to mention that this number is something that some analyst came up with.
The only thing that Samsung revealed was that revenue for the Telecomm business grew by 37%. That's all.
