The Samsung Galaxy S III has beaten the iPhone 4S and is now the best selling smartphone in the United States.
According to market analyst Canaccord Genuity (via AppleInsider), the Samsung Galaxy S3 was the best selling smartphone in August. The iPhone 4S was on top since its release last October. This will likely already change in September again when Apple is starting to sell the iPhone 5. On top of that the Samsung Galaxy S3 might be under a sales ban by then. Apple has added Samsung's flagship phone to the list of devices that they see infringing on their design.

According to AppleInsider, analyst Gene Munster predicts that Apple is selling 6 to 10 million new iPhone 5 devices in the last week of September.
The new iPhone 5 will be announced on September 12. The iPhone 5 sales are then to begin September 21. Rumored features of the new iPhone 5 include a larger screen, A6 CPU, iOS 6, small dock connector, 4G LTE and NFC. The overall design would not change dramatically. The backside material is not glass anymore as Apple introduces a unibody design. The rumors also say that the iPhone 5 is very thin.
