in just a week or month there would be another stock coming. samsung can release volume of phones. they own every part of cellphone unlike other which depends on china in terms of hardware implementation

other brands were scared of releasing volume of phones because what if they did not sell that fast

Of course all this it can be found on the net but try once in awhile to take off that google glasses and see more than just they show you:)...

Not sure about this, are they trying to sell those new models? 350mil? By the looks of their new units I think they'd be lucky to sell 100mil.

all the best Samsung. I have read some naive comments, like Samsung falling down next year, Samsung copy cat.... bla bla bla.... Nokia was in top spot for 14 yrs, and before was Motorolla... now its Samsung, and well deserved as they worked hard to reach the same and in the end it is in the consumers' best interest. Samsung is there to stay, as it is still in the birth/growth stage and more to come.

Samsung if they want they can build a phone that dominates for the next 2 years at least like Omnia HD.
But they don't because they don't want to make overpriced phones.
Samsung is not only a lead in phones market also in electronics unlike the others you mentioned those failed to build their own CPU or GPU even the screen they import it from Samsung!
The true rival will be LG.
BTW Nokia is in no way to be compared with Samsung because they don't even make a thing in their phones they are a design company, even Apple is better they at least have their own OS.
