Samsung Ousts Nokia as World's Largest Phone Supplier
May 16, 2012, 3:00 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Samsung sold 86.6 million cellphones during the first three months of 2012, surpassing the 83.2 million handsets sold by Nokia in the same period. This puts Samsung ahead of Nokia as the world's top supplier of mobile phones, a title Nokia has owned for more than a decade. The numbers, which come from Gartner, mark a significant change in the mobile industry. Nokia has long been the world's foremost supplier of cell phones as a whole and smartphones as a sub-category. Both segments now belong to Samsung, which has been propelled to the top by the success of its Android-based smartphones. Gartner's numbers say that Samsung owns 20.7% of the global cellphone market, and Nokia now owns 19.8%.
