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.

A relatively open software platform with a vast array of models beats a closed proprietary platform with a tiny model range. Anyone with half a brain could have predicted that this would happen.

Obviously Steve Jobs didn't learn any lessons from his previous two fsckups - the original Mac and NeXT.


Seems like you've misinterpreted the definition of deja vu.
Increased sales year over year and more than 50% profits of the entire phone market (yes not just smartphones).

Oh and this "open" platform is so great for the users, oh wait....
