No. Samsungs not going to get that. Not they r gonna be no.1 for long time. Because they are already started overpricing their phones which is a bad move that was made by all topdogs nokia,motorla etc., and now they have realized and started making their products reasonable. And apple and sony who r leaving with overpricing are not gonna last long and knowing it they are planning a lot for lower end. So if you wanna proof of sammy going towards bad attitude , compare the specs and price of lumia 620 and galaxy s3 mini.
Many of u may say nokia is lost but u know its not the first billion smart people thatr made this company. Nokias got the next billions of medium people where samsung cant even keep its stick on

Wow that's a lot of plastic. Will samsung going to collect all of those garbage when those phones are already dead? I mean if an average phone is 125g multiply it with 350mil, thats 43,750 tons of garbage plastic and 40% of those will be batteries.

So Samsung expecting to own around 40% of the smartphone market... that's a bold target... If this is true I would love to know what they expect from HTC, Sony, Nokia, LG, Motorola, RIM and all this small Chinese OEMs... If this is true most of the other companies have file for bankruptcy... Not a very likely scenario for me.

if google hadnt reacted in time and started developing their own mobile platform when they did, they would be in the same place as yahoo right now
