Samsung Expected to Outsell Nokia in Handsets
- April 12, 2012
April 12, 2012 – Reuters reports that analysts expect Samsung to sell 88 million cellphones in Q1, surpassing the 83 million sold by Nokia. According to the article, Nokia has been struggling in the smartphone market, but its dominance in the lower end of the market has allowed it to keep its rank as the world’s largest cellphone maker by volume. Nokia reportedly became the world’s largest cellphone maker in 1998, and controlled around 40% of the market before Apple introduced the iPhone in 2007.
