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.

Ever heard of Motorola and RIM?

Ten years ago Motorola totally dominated the high end phone market. Five years ago it was RIM. Motorola has gone and RIM is in serious decline.

Apple has a tiny portfolio of rapidly aging hardware products that are vulnerable to competition.
