Good for Samsung. But I don't think they will last. Nokia will definitely make a comeback and will reclaim their lost throne. They deserve to be at the top again as they are truly the only innovative mobile phone manufacturer.

i own SGS3, owened SGS2 before this for a year..but deep down under I still feel Nokia should come on top of all these guys like apple/samsung/sony...Nokia should be the leader, not the follower just the way they were in 90s & early 2000s...its so easy for nokia to do it but they are not doing it god knows why...

All they have to do is to start using android OS in their phones...optimize it as the people need it..follow the phone that is on top and improve on the phone that is on is it so difficult...also in current conditions...people are ready to pay $500.00+ on a very good phone...

Samsung brings what consumers wants. Good job. Other company still scratching their heads trying to figure out whats wrong...

it really pays to make and supply spare parts to your competitors, it gives you a heads up on what the competition is doing and what their products is selling and which one is not.

When you flood the market with zillion phones and their zillion spin offs, sure your sales are going to be way more than other OEMs'.

Of course their Bada lineup will not have an impact, they did not announce any new Bada phones this year.
