Despite all the ongoing legal battles between Samsung and Apple at the moment, it looks like the Korean electronics manufacturer has had a pretty good run this year. Samsung announced yesterday that it had sold over 300 million mobile handsets this year – a first for the company. Its previous sales record was 280 million units sold last year. I guess the 10 million Galaxy S2 units sold this year played a big part in helping the company reach its latest milestone.
This puts Samsung as the second largest phone maker by volume in the world, with Nokia still holding onto first place. No word on what’s going to happen next year, but if Samsung continues at this pace, it might have a shot at taking first place in the near future. How many of you picked up a Samsung phone this year and contributed to this figure?
