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.

Shipments != Sales

unless every phone you ships has sold, and there are lines outside the stores each morning. Every phone Apple can make sells in hours. Stuffing a channel with inventory that won't sell for weeks is another thing.

Argument is fine. Disagreement is OK. Calling one thing the same as another when it isn't is just click bait.
