Global smartphone market and#8212; a two horse race



In 2011, Samsung and Apple have played a seesaw game. Samsung lost the crown temporarily to Apple in the fourth quarter thanks to strong iPhone 4S sales, but the Korean electronics company shipped 97 million units for the full year becoming the new leader in the smartphone market, according to Thomas Kang, an analyst with Strategy Analytics in Seoul. Samsung will likely surpass Apple in the first quarter of 2012. In the meantime, Nokia sales dropped 31 percent compared to last year.
