Samsung beats Apple in Smartphone Sales last Quarter
 
 

Samsung announced their Q4 earnings today and surprised with record smartphone sales that make it the number #1 in smartphone sales. Samsung was able to push out 28 million smartphones, which is almost 4x compared to the same quarter last year.

Major driver of Samsung smartphone sales is the Galaxy S2, which sold already beyond 10 million units. Apple had a weaker than expected Q4 because of the iPhone 4S release. Still Samsung was able to sell 10 million more smartphones than Apple is quite a high mark to reach. The current Holiday quarter will though be more interesting as Apple has now the iPhone 4S on the market.

Via Reuters.

Update:
Samsung actually did not announce sales of 28 million smartphones in their quarterly earnings. The number is supposed to come from an analyst. Actually we do not really know how many smartphones Samsung sold. See also The Loop. So Apple is still the #1 smartphone seller? we do not know as long as not all companies report sales numbers on the same standards.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
