rtfa-troll (1340807) writes "Tomi Ahonen reports that Samsung has become the largest manufacturer of smartphones (overtaking Apple) and of mobile phones (overtaking Nokia). During the first quarter of 2012 Samsung sold 93.5 million phones with 44.5 million (48%) of those smartphones. Apple would still lead on "smart mobile devices" with 52 million sales including iPads but not iPods. The last time the lead in mobile phone changed was in 14 years ago, in 1998, when Nokia overtook Ericsson. Ericsson never recovered and began leaving the mobile phone market three years later creating Sony Ericsson, later Sony Mobile. It looks like the mobile phone market is going to be brutal with Apple and Samsung crushing everybody else except possibly HTC which is still rising and Motorola (which has Google to look after it)."
